Twitter Tools to Unfollow Non-followers and Increase Productivity
Earlier known as JustUnfollow, this is a place you’ll simply love. It offers a fantastic UI. Very easy to use and great navigation on this site would help you to effectively clean your twitter timeline in no time.
I simply loved the user interface and the overall design. Besides of just unfollowing non-followers, this site offers a lot more like tracking recent followers/unfollowers, copy followers, keyword follow etc. which can help you in effective utilization of Twitter and reaching a wider audience.
Unfollowing Twitter users may involve various reasons; while some people are looking to unfollow fake followers or people who don’t follow back, others have an aim to unfollow people who tweet too much. Most of the time, these are just bots who look like a genuine twitter profile but aims at spamming.
ManageFlitter does exactly this! It provides an efficient mechanism to prune and clean-up your timeline. Along with this basic filtering, it offers feature like Power Post which helps you post Tweets at the best time to reach more people, help you in tracking keywords from tweets, get analytics and beat your competition. While it is free to try, you can have a pro version at only $12.
It is one of the most famous website which would help you to manage your Twitter account. Once you login and authorize your twitter account, you will get a dashboard as shown below. Here you can geeky flush the followers (unfollow them), reciprocate (by following users who are following you) or perform general clean-up activities so as to unfollow inactive Twitter profiles.
These tools might seem useless at first glance, but when you’re following more than say, hundred Twitter users, then going through each profile and checking for its authenticity one by one is not a viable option. This tool would provide you up with the quick summary of all users, and you can filter these according to the criteria you set so that it would be easy to unfollow non-followers. A kind of restriction in this tool is that it allows you to unfollow people one by one. If it provided something like bulk unfollowing with a single click after filtering, it would be super awesome.

I am sure this becomes a necessity at some point. In two weeks on Twitter I went out and started following what I was after as a target, people that looked like good niche bloggers. So I would follow about 80 and let them just sit, for days, generally about 5 and out of those 80 I might get followed by 10 to 15 of my original follows. Then come the robots and it would pick up 4 or so more of whatever’s. At first I am like, okay, as long as its not something like a gambling or porn site, not that worried and I would follow them back, since they will unfollow if I don’t.
So after two weeks, there is about 250 follows, probably 60 of them actual niche bloggers. Then I am like, okay, which of these 60 are real people that will interact and its not all machine managed? So I made a list and locked it down as private and called it, Real People. And everyone that was a blogger, acting like a human being, I put in that list. Those are the tweets I really pay attention to, the ones I will retweet or favorite.
I wanted Harsh on this Real People list bad. So I left him, and left him, and left him some more. Dang it! I can’t add him to the real people list so his stuff isn’t getting lost in this crowd unless he follows. Nope.
So, I understand the it is going to take a program at some point, to weed the garden so to speak. Even at 250 I am feeling the strain and at a thousand that will be in another 3 or 4 weeks, I will have to automate at least the follow and unfollow of it.
Here is the ones that crack me up though. Its those other programs, the ones that auto tweet you when you follow, or auto send you a message, to verify your real. Don’t you need to be at a certain level of real to have a expectation of others being real?
