Starting a new Twitter account or taking over and rebranding an old one?
Maybe you’ve noticed that you’re unable to add new Twitter followers and your account has too many unwanted fake or inactive followers?
Do you want to remove those less than desirable people from growing Twitter community, so you can start connecting with those you really want to be connected to?
Keep reading, I’m going to share with 4 tools to remove those inactive and unfollowers from your Twitter account, so you can start enjoying your Twitter experience!
Now, I have to share that Twitter terms of services doesn’t allow for bulk removal of Twitter followers because basically this option has been abused too many times.
To a certain extent, unless you have someone doing it for you, there is some manual work involved with all Twitter tools when cleaning up your Twitter account yourself.
The safest way to clean up your account is by going straight to the source itself. When you go to your list of followers, on everyone’s profile it will tell you whether they are following you or not.
You can choose base on relevancy if you want to continue to be connected or unfollow them. Simply click unfollow everyone that is not relevant to the community you want to grow.
Although this process is simple to do, it’s also one of the most time-consuming methods on this list.
Similar to other Twitter tools Crowdfire has a freemium price point that allows you to remove 50 followers from your account daily. It’s easy to log in using your account and automatically shows you who is following you and who isn’t.
It provides several options, that you can choose to pick from:
- Whitelist people who are not following you. Whitelisting if for adding people or brands that will probably never follow you back, but you are still interested in reading and receiving tweets from them.
- Reply to them on a Twitter message
- Add them to a Twitter list that you’ve created.
- And a big red circle that allows you to unfollow.
Is another free to tool that puts all of your unfollowers in a list that you can check off to be removed. My only issue with the website, is that it’s a bit hard to look at for a long period of time, it’s not the most visually appealing site.
But as a free tool, I really can’t complain, it does what it says it can do!
What options do you have with Untweeps?
You can choose the number of days between your unfollowers last tweet days. This is helpful because the person may not have followed you back because they haven’t tweeted in a few days.
That’s a decision you have to make. If you’re not the most active on Twitter, then you may want a bigger time frame to consider when removing a follower. So if they are not active between 45-60 days then you may want to unfollow.
If you’re like me, I remove followers who are not active in about 30 days, but that’s my preference. It doesn’t have to be yours.
On Untweeps, you also have the option to Whitelist Your Unfollowers. There is a Pro version that you can pay for, if you have more than 7500 Twitter followers. And if you want to use the platform more than 3 times per month you will have to pay to upgrade.
For a small account, this program can be useful for maintaining your account.
Currently, this is my tool of choice! Manageflitter has a freemium business model. The website is easy on the eye and also simple to use.
It does everything all the other tools, I’ve shared in this post.
- Whitelist Twitter followers
- Responds to people’s tweets
- Remove the inactives
- Remove the unfollowers
- Or consider removing people who are not consistent on Twitter.
- Plus you can add people to different targeting options.
You get to remove 100 people every 24 hours with the free version and within Twitter limits on the paid.
Ultimately, what network you use to clean up your account is solely based on your preferences, needs, and finances. All of them are free to use, so you can test them out, it won’t take you long to figure out which one you will prefer using.
