Free Twitter Tools To Unfollow

I treat my social media accounts like I treat my home, as social-media platform are now an integral part of our lives. More over, I tend to keep things simple and to the point. On Twitter I follow many people and interact with them, some of them are still active and many of them stop using their Twitter account. I’m sure like me you also like clutter free timeline and thus we have covered few important Twitter tools here at ShoutMeLoud such as following likeminded Twitter users, unfollow the ones who are not following you and many more.

Apart from all this one thing is also important that we unfollow Twitter users who are inactive because such users’ increases count of Twitter users we are following and they hardly provide any useful information. Thus here are few Twitter Tools which will help you to unfollow inactive Twitter users.

2 Twitter Tools to unfollow inactive Twitter users:


I like the simple and user-friendly layout of this tool. It becomes very easy to unfollow tweeps who are not active with just selecting the checkbox. And if you think that Twitter users share useful information even if he/she is inactive since long then you can uncheck the selection. More over you can also find those twitter account which have only zero tweets. Do you know Twitter can delete a Twitter account is it has been inactive for 6 months.

Go to and login using your Twitter account. After logging in you will see a screen like above image, and you can select the days for which a Twitter account which you are following have not made any single status update. You can select multiple accounts from the inactive list and click on unfollow tweeps to unfollow them in bulk. It’s a neat and pretty fast tool which you will love.


ManageFlitter is a multi-purpose Twitter app which let you do many things. Let me first talk about unfollow feature and later I will also share few other features which I discovered about this tool. Go to and login using your Twitter account. At the top click on Manage > Unfollow and select quiet from the left sidebar to see the users who have not tweeted for long. This way you can quickly identify profile and you can batch select and unfollow them.

  • Yogita Aggarwal

    Hey.. Manage Filter is so cool.
    Thanks for the great resource.

  • Arslan

    Great list but again many tools are missing like unfollow, unfollower etc.
    One thing is irritating that these tools tweet lots of thing on your behalf and they also send messages to your followers.

  • Pretentiously Modest

    The Twit Cleaner is fantastic, I was following more spam accounts than I thought. Thank you so much for the links! :)

  • Shobhit Bakliwal is also a great tool. It even helps you notify who unfollowed you.

    i just go thru my followers via it’s not a good idea if you’re dealing with thousands tho. im small time to keep it personal

  • Cheryl

    Just tried Untweeps – very easy! I noticed some friends on the list of inactive users – I’m still following them, but I did cull out some accounts that looked like people changed their minds about. Names were misspelled. Some were duplicate accounts and I’m already following them somewhere else. It felt like spring cleaning. Limited to three free clean-ups per month. Well worth the time and the effort. Excellent list!

  • Daniel

    I have always done this I am planning to use an automated service among the 5 ones.

  • Digital Imagination

    wow….great tips to clean inactive people….

    i am sure that i will be using it now itself….

    Thanks for the tips

    Why would you want to unfollow inactive users especially if you are using Twitter to promote your business and get links. You would want maximum exposure for your tweets.

    As far as de-cluttering the time line is concerned, Twitter now provides you the facility of creating lists. So you can create any number of lists like say for instance, Friends, Gurus, etc… or however you want it and add people from your followers to those lists.

    Then when you click the list you can see the tweets of only those people whom you have added to the list. That way you can follow those whom you really want to follow and know about.

      The primary reason to unfollow inactive users is because of follower limits. If you are following too many inactive users, there may be cases in which you are unable to follow active users.

    Twitcleaner works best for me. I have also heard a lot about untweeps and now looking to try my hands on it.

  • Mani Viswanathan

    I used to do this will use an automated service among the 5

  • Dean Saliba

    Again another good collection of Twitter tools that will save me lots of time when I do my monthly inactive user clear out.

  • John Paul Aguiar

    I use Untweeps for about 8 mnths now, and works great.

    One tip that I do.. I run it then I copy.paste all the names into a few emails. that way you can unfollow people on your own time.. and it make sit much faster.

  • Karen

    Nice selection of tools and ones which I personally use, there can be times when a Twitter account just get over run with those tweeters that you really don’t want to be following, we all know the sort of tweeters I’m talking about ;)

  • Tech

  • Sourav
