Is it possible to block a single Twitter page?

    I knew it will work bcoz I tested it in chrome and f.fox.
    Blocking a single page is not possible but avoiding is always possible :)

    Thank you for your replies. Do these options work in Mozilla Firefox?  I'm not on twitter so can't block it from there.  I just want to stop being tempted to look at someone's page.

    You have the option of blocking that profile on twitter...which i think will block the user to interact to you on twitter.
    it also looks like you dont want to see that page and thats why want to block it.
    If you edit the "hosts" file in windows folder, it will block the entire site on all the browsers.
    You can "block" a certain webpage in google chrome, not sure about other browsers.

    This works for Internet Explorer. 
    On your computer, find the hosts file. Its usually here:c: windows system32 drivers etcUse notepad to open the file HOSTS. (no extension). Enter the following two lines:

    http://www.twitter.com 127.0.0.1
    twitter.com 127.0.0.1
