    5 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.

    Oh! I got two different results from two different tools for the same timeline. Now this is strange.



    well i checked all tonls… And found untweeps is best of all for me..



    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 ;)

    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.

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


    Mani Viswanathan

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



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



    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.

    wow….great tips to clean inactive people….

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

    Thanks for the tips



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



    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!



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

    http://www.justunfollow.com is also a great tool. It even helps you notify who unfollowed you.

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



    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.

    Hey.. Manage Filter is so cool.

    Only Managefitter is still working.


    Harsh Agrawal
