The type of formatting (or lack of) is caused by the css for that page not being loaded.
I'd wonder if your Bloxx filtering is not letting something necessary through for the css to be properly rendered.  The css not showing up may not be the real problem, but only a symptom.  You may be blocking some script execution (or a portion of it), which is keeping the css from rendering.

I think to narrow down whether or not it is a filtering problem, would be to first view twitter in more than one browser.  If it happening across all browsers, I'd bet it's the filtering.

I don't have direct experience with Bloxx.  Does it keep a log of what is blocked?  If so, I'd hit twitter, then check the log for that date/time.  It might yield more clues as to the specific item that is being blocked.

Someone else with Bloxx expertise might also weigh in here.
