If you are using Twitter a lot you might be following a lot of people who are not really active. Sometimes these accounts are far too many and it can be a bit of a problem to keep track. Having 2000 people follow you on Twitter and following 2000 people in return is a little lame. Some accounts are robotic and others tweet too much to basically spam your timeline.
I decided to do clean up some cobwebs from the list of people I follow on Twitter and found three different services which were quite useful. So I thought why not share them with you!
#1. Friend or Follow
- Friend or Follow actually is a wonderful tool to take a few seconds and find out how many people you follow do not follow you back.
- You can filter these accounts too which means you can exclude verified accounts from showing up. 🙂
- The best part is does show you a list of people you follow and they don’t follow you back based on last tweet or the age of the account. I guess if someone is Tweeting once in 6 months you might not really want to follow that person.
#2. Manage Flitter
- ManageFlitter is another tool that allows you to clean up your account. I used it and found it very useful as it has more relevant information than Friend or Follow.
- It shows up friend who dont follow you but also based on other behaviour like how quite is a particular account. It also simply shows inactive accounts you might be following all banded togeather.
- All we need to do is select the accounts you want and unfollow them from Managerflitter itself. 🙂
- TwitCleaner promises to clean up the garbage on your Twitter account. It gives a decent view on certain followers who do not follow you back.
- Some of these stats are interesting as you can see in the image above it shows the number of people who have had no activity over a whole month.
- This is one of the few tools that also highlights Twitter accounts who are repetitive or only tweet links. 😉
Hope you enjoyed these three tools to make sure you are not following irrelevant accounts.
