Have you ever logged into your Twitter account and found that you can only read the tweets for a couple of minutes because you have so many followers that there are just too many tweets to read? Eventually they start to look like they are about to join together and form one huge ugly unreadable tweet.
This can be a problem if you run a “follow me and I will follow you” policy.
A lot of people will follow you and once you follow them back, they will unfollow you, believing that they have scored a major victory over you and that you will never find out.
Recently I had to take action because I had followed over 2,000 people and all I saw when I logged into Twitter were tweet after tweet of adverts and general spam. People trying to get me to click on paid links and buy various products that are of no interest to me. I am a man so why would I want to buy a sex toy that women use?
I did not fancy having to go through the mundane task of manually unfollowing people one by one. But thankfully I found a nice little program that can mass unfollow people for me. All I have to do is press a couple of buttons and the job is basically done.
The program is called Twitter Follower and what it does is it unfollows everyone who is not following you.
It does require signing up to the site for a free account but this takes about a minute. Once you login all you have to do is click the Mass Unfollow and within ten minutes those that you are following that are not following you back will be removed.
