Resolution criteria: Resolves YES if and only if at EOY 2023, there will be a feature on X/Twitter for account A to prevent a specific other account B from seeing A's public tweets.

Some examples: If "blocking" still exists for DMs but DMs only, this will resolve NO. If a "mute" feature exists but doesn't stop B from viewing A's public tweets, this will still resolve NO. If it becomes a paid feature, this will resolve YES.

Similar market, but with different resolution criteria for August:

If a "mute" feature exists but it doesn't stop B from viewing or interacting with A's public tweets, this will still resolve NO.

What if B can see the tweet, but cannot reply/like/quote/retweet?

yep

@rpominov If B doesn't have to use any workarounds (eg. logging in to a different account, fetching Tweets using the API, install a browser extension, ...) to view tweets, this will resolve as NO.

The existence of workarounds to view the tweets wouldn't make this question resolve NO by itself, as workarounds like that already exist today.

@yep Thanks, but I'm still not sure I understand how "or interacting" changes the resolution criteria. Could you give an example in which case it would matter?

yep avatar
yep

@rpominov Gotcha, I removed that wording from the thread. The "resolution criteria" paragraph is the one that matters.
