It's called FacebookBlocker. It's found in the Add-ons. I have version 1.2.2. There may be a newer version since I have not checked in awhile. There is none for Twitter. You can only block them using your HOSTS file.

What's wrong with you people?
Have you never heard of a hosts file?
It's a standard file used by every version of windows to hard-code a DNS entry for any internet host. I believe that a similar file is used by linux and mac PC's as well.
If you want to effectively block your computer (any program running on your computer, including your browser) from interacting with fecesbook in any way, then add the following lines to your hosts file:
127.0.0.1 facebook.com 127.0.0.1 www.facebook.com 127.0.0.1 error.facebook.com 127.0.0.1 static.ak.connect.facebook.com 127.0.0.1 www.static.ak.connect.facebook.com 127.0.0.1 static.ak.facebook.com 127.0.0.1 www.static.ak.facebook.com 127.0.0.1 api.facebook.com 127.0.0.1 www.api.facebook.com 127.0.0.1 connect.facebook.net 127.0.0.1 ssl.connect.facebook.com 127.0.0.1 api-read.facebook.com 127.0.0.1 ads.facebook.com 127.0.0.1 ads.ak.facebook.com 127.0.0.1 creative.ak.facebook.com 127.0.0.1 static.ak.fbcdn.net 127.0.0.1 www.static.ak.fbcdn.net 127.0.0.1 login.facebook.com 127.0.0.1 www.login.facebook.com 127.0.0.1 fbcdn.net 127.0.0.1 www.fbcdn.net 127.0.0.1 fbcdn.com 127.0.0.1 www.fbcdn.com 127.0.0.1 www-10-05-prn1.facebook.com 127.0.0.1 pixel.facebook.com 127.0.0.1 s-static.ak.facebook.com 127.0.0.1 s-static.ak.fbcdn.net
No add-ons needed.
The hosts file will be found here:
Windows 9x/me: c:\windows\hosts Win-2k/xp/vista/7: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
In the Windows start menu search box type "notepad" (without the quotes) right click the entry and select "Run as Administrator" then enter your user credentials for the UAC prompt and click yes to open notepad.
In notepad at "File" select "Open" then browse to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc in the window that opens select "All Files" then "hosts" then click "Open" to open the default Windows Hosts File location.
