3 Tools To Clean Up Your Twitter Followers

23 October 2015  

Operation Transformation

As with any machine, it’s a good idea to keep it well oiled, and the Twitter Machine is no different!

When we are writing social media process for clients, we recommend a monthly action of tidying up Twitter followers. This means removing inactive accounts, followers who are not following back and even those not adding any value to your page (harsh I know!). This task can be pretty repetitive if done manually, but thankfully there are some great free tools for bulk unfollowing on Twitter.

Why should you unfollow on Twitter?

If you want to keep your Twitter stream healthy and working well, then you must develop and implement an unfollow strategy.

  • Unfollowing those who don’t follow back will actually help you connect with more people! Did you know that there are limits on how many people you can follow, so you need you need to make room for new ones.
  • Unfollowing those unrelated (to your industry) will help you connect better with people in the same area. This means your feed won’t be taken up with unnecessary noise. And it comes back to being defined about how you use Twitter.
  • There are millions of inactive accounts on Twitter, do you want them to take up space in your following count? Delete them and connect with more people you have similar interests with.

2. ManageFlitter

Manage Flitter has some great features that the other tools don’t have such as Power Post which shows you the best time to tweet (like Buffer). It also lets you find fake Twitter followers and most talkative Twitter followers. If you fancy upgrading,you can access full analytics and remote account management with the premium subscription, but we like the free one as it is.

3. Crowdfire App

Crowdfire formally known as justunfollow. The unique feature here is that you can white/blacklist followers – whitelists are for people you follow, but don’t want to hear. We don’t see the point of blacklists. If you wish to go for the paid version, there’s a new beta version that lets you link multiple Twitter accounts. The biggest drawback of the free vesion is that it only allows you to unfollow 25 times daily which is extremely low and wouldn’t work for large accounts.
