Twitter Unfollow Tools – Who Likes Ya?


Twitter Unfollow Tools

​I’ll let you into a little secret – when I first started out using Twitter as a marketing platform I absolutely sucked at it! 

I’m not on about over-tweeting or spamming here, I’m on about just about every aspect of the platform. I didn’t get it – it was too fast paced and way too dynamic for my simple newbie’s mind!

I started to follow just about ANYONE that showed some sort of interest in my posts. Before I knew it I had a backlog of followers that were near enough useless to the social media world ( spammers, spammers and more spammers! ).

So today I thought I’d help out those of you that have ended up with similar Twitter accounts. I’ve decided to cover a few of the Twitter unfollow tools I used to clean up my account and get a more authoritative looking presence…

So my Twitter account was a complete mess – we’ve highlighted that fact enough! The first thing I did in my ‘clean up job’ was to become more particular about accounts that I was following on Twitter.

So I started targeting the hopeless users who were inactive or providing little to no value to my precious timeline.

I then went through the process of locating the people who hadn’t bothered to follow me back – they’re not interested in me so why should I be interested in them?

Here are the most effective Twitter unfollow tools I used to complete this task:

1) Tweepi Cleanup Tools

Tweepi Cleanup ToolsI thought I’d cover the Tweepi cleanup tools first as they provide a reasonably simple mechanism to clean up your account.

It’s a simple and visually appealing tool that basically flushes all the people who did not follow you back down the drain! It’s not just an unfollow tool – it has several useful Twitter applications/processes.

If you want to find out more about this tool I suggest visiting the official site and signing up for free here

2) Manageflitter For Twitter

This was actually the first unfollow tool I came across but I got a little greedy and decided to check out the competition as well as using it. Funnily enough, I ended up choosing it over all the others eventually!

Manageflitter for twitter is a brilliant FREE tool that allows you to clean up multiple Twitter accounts ( if you have more than one of course! ).

Manageflitter For Twitter

You can sync your Google+ account with Twitter, backup your Twitter connections, create Power Posts, check out email reports, follow your tweet analytics and much, much more.

There is a pro version of Manageflitter that offers a few more features but I’ve never felt the need to upgrade – the free version offers everything I need!

3) Follower Filter

When I first used this tool it was a pretty basic system but it has improved and evolved over time. Now it offers a lot more features for it’s users:

  • ​You can group delete certain tweets
  • You can reset tweets
  • You can see the people who started to follow and unfollow you since your last visit with the notice report
  • You can manage Twitter members by Protection and Blocked lists
  • Oh…and you can unfollow the people who are not following you

This is now a pretty decent piece of kit that thousands of Twitter users opt to use. If you want to find out more about the site you can visit it here

4) Crowdfire ( Formerly Known as JustUnfollow )

This is another awesome Twitter tool but it was a little too ‘involved’ for my campaigns. I like my social tools to be simple, push-button systems that I can get through with a minimum of fuss.

The app has been running since February 2010 and it was aimed at giving Twitter users a more efficient way of managing their accounts.


The main feature I find most useful allows you to keep track of how your social media updates affect your follower/unfollower stats. This means you are always going to have some sort of idea when you have pissed someone off.

I don’t know about you but I’m constantly pushing the boundaries to see if I can draw in some sort of engagement on my posts. At times I cross the line and lose followers as a result – this feature lets me know I’ve put my foot in it yet again!

Twitter Unfollow Tools

Over a weekly period I still frequently clean up my twitter profile. Serious Twitter users will often look into your account to see if you are professional enough to be deemed ‘worthy’ of following.

At the end of the day if you have lousy followers then your posts will only be read by lousy individuals. They will not often engage with your content and they are highly unlikely to spread the word.

  1. Chris,
    Thanks for the article on twitter unfollow tools. I found tweepi some time ago and I agree with you it works great. I have to be honest I am a little more than daft when it comes to my twitter account. How do you actually decide who to get rid of and who to follow? The other tools I have not even heard of, so thanks for the share.

    1. Hi Marc,
      I would suggest skimming through your twitter account and seeing who is active and who is not. I would also advise getting rid of the dodgy looking members – the one’s that look like supermodels but only have about 100 followers!

  2. It is important to eliminate people you friended who have no interest in you. This becomes important when you personal page starts to approach the 5000 person limit. The article goes on to point out that a twitter account filled with spammers is pretty much worthless, so be a bit selective as to whom you friend.

    This is a good list of tools for managing twitter. Check them out.

  3. Hi Chris,
    Thanks for your informative article about twitter unfollow tools. I just started using twitter since not long ago and I just realized how important it is to choose or ‘filter’ the twitter followers after reading your article. Will try out the tools you recommended to clean up my twitter profile. Thanks!


    1. No problems Saber – I’m glad you’ve been able to take something useful from the article! Good luck with your future twitter marketing 🙂

  4. Some great information on Twitter Unfollow Tools to keep things rolling with the social media scene. I still have not taken the time to figure a lot of the different social medias out yet and twitter being one of them.
    I find to use twitter I would need to be able to block out time to learn and use it on a daily schedule which I have not been able to do yet.

  5. Hey Chris,

    great advice man! To be honest, without your aticle I would have been someone who just goes for as many followers as possible. Quantity over quality 😉

    But I totally see your point.

    I am curious though, something that I am most interested these days is something that Gary Vaynerchuk is known for (o you know him?). He advices to go for the new platforms even more than for the big ones like twitter, FB etc as you can make way more noise in the new ones.

    What is your opinion about that? Really would love to know!

    Best wishes,


    1. That’s actually not bad advice Philip – I see the logic there! ( actually, I may look into that further myself! ) 🙂

  6. Hi Chris,

    Thanks for the app list. I personally use Crowdfire to unfollow people who don’t follow me. Do you have any advice as to how I can automate my search foe engaged twitter users? Most of my followers usually automates their DMs, and I can see that their tweets feels very scheduled. I do tweet automation myself using MeetEdgar but I hardly get retweets and comments. So far, I have only been actively using for less than a month. I had 3 to 4 likes and retweets and maybe 4 comments but thats it. My followers also doesnt seem to care about my posts. haha. My twitter account is such a graveyard. lol. Any advice?

    1. Sorry what are you looking for again? Are you after an app that can automate messages to your followers? I couldn’t quite make it out from the comment!

  7. Hi Chris,

    Without a single doubt, and despite the name Unfollowers(.com) is by far head and shoulders above any other twitter following tool out there. It far cheaper also, and as a bonus can use it to increase your following on instagram also.

    $6,90 per month for just one account and $10 for 2 accounts. freaking awesome, I have been using it for about 7 month now and I am very happy with it. Far better than tweepi.

  8. This is awesome! When I started using social media I was horrible too, but that was because of my lack of knowledge in the area. I realized how important it was to be inform and educated about approaching social media the right way.I actually deleted my Twitter account but after reading your post I am starting over. Thank you.
