The Twitter Support account has tweeted that they are busy resolving the issue revolving around the many “This message is unavailable” messages seen daily on Twitter.
Twitter will be adding more context to these notices allowing you to see the exact reason why a Tweet is unavailable instead of having to go hunt for a solution.
You now know what the possible issues are and that makes it much easier to understand the problem better, so now you can go onto Twitter and try out the following tips:

Clearing your mobile browser cache and then switching off your device for a minimum of 5 minutes and connecting again will reset your connection to the internet.
If a Tweet has been retweeted, you can always go to the original poster’s tweet to see the content; that’s if said person doesn’t have a private account.
If the Twitter user account is set to private, you can send a follow request.
If you have blocked or muted the account holder, you can unblock or unmute the person, but this might not work every time.
Refresh the page; this can in some cases resolve the issue but don’t beat yourself up if it doesn’t do the trick.
If none of the above methods worked out for you and you still insist on seeing the tweet, you have one last resort.
You can contact Twitter Support to raise concerns about this issue, but you may still not be able to view the content depending on why the tweet is unavailable.

How do I know if someone blocked me on Twitter?
It’s so easy to block someone and what makes it even easier to consider is that Twitter doesn’t send out any type of notifications to let anyone know if or when they are blocked by another Twitter user.
It makes social media more interesting when you can block out the Twitter accounts and content that you do not want to see or receive.
Most users are very thankful for this feature, especially because some people don’t use these platforms correctly which can lead to having to deal with accounts and content you do not find pleasant.
Though when someone blocked you, it doesn’t feel as relieving.
You will be able to see if a specific person has blocked you on Twitter by logging in to your Twitter account, then search the person’s username, real name, or a any of their previous tweets (the search engine will be at the top of any page).
The Twitter account will only appear if their account is public, if its set to private the account will not come up when searching.
Then click on the username to go into the profile; if there is no profile and their account was set to public, the odds are that they have blocked you.
If their account is set to private but you used to be able to see their content, you can add their username to the end of the Twitter web URL in the address bar of your browser, make sure that you check the spelling before searching otherwise the account might not come up.
If none of these methods work, you can consider searching for a mutual friend on Twitter and then click on their profile to go through the lists of names who are either following said person or the other way around.
Some people have a lot of followers which makes it a bit time consuming but you will be able to find the specific account you are looking for; that’s if they are following or being followed by the mutual friend.
In most cases, you might have more than one mutual friend with the person and therefore you can search for a few more mutual friends, go through their lists and see if you can find the account.
If none of these methods show the profile that you are looking for, the person has either blocked you or deactivated their Twitter account.
