Twitter's new anti-abuse measure stops notifications for threads started by people you've blocked

Twitter's number one priority in the last couple of months has been combatting abuse on the platform. 
In November, the company launched a set of measures to get rid of trolls, including a "mute" button that helps users filter out unwanted conversations. In early February, Twitter announced a new "safe search" feature that blocks potentially offensive tweets. And earlier this week, the company stopped notifying people when they were added to lists — though that change was reversed within hours.
