Over the time I realise, removing people from our friend list is as important as following the new one. Specially if you are a blogger or internet marketer who is using social media to grow your network and business. It’s important for you to keep a check on people you are following on social media platform. Today, I will be sharing useful tips on Twitter and also share my trick on how I unfollower people who were not following me on Twitter.
Now, before you follow my steps and unfollow everyone who is not following you back on Twitter, let me throw some light on what kind of users you should unfollow. Twitter is one of then most active social-network and if you connect with right people, not only you will amplify your reach, you will also be seen as power twitter user. Back in days, people used to Autofollow new followers, which I believe is a lame practice and something you should avoid doing. If you goal is just to grow your number of twitter followers, you may ignore my above suggestion.
Apart from following official twitter profile of other blogs (to stay updated with latest post), influencer ( To stay updated with interesting tweets), I follow people that I meet onine or offline, or people I wish to connect. Sometime many of these people don’t reciprocate and miss out on making a genuine connection. It’s a good idea to unfollow those users and try to make connection with them later on. Of course you should wait few months or atleast weeks before you unfollow these people.
We have already covered quite a lot of tutorials on twitter and if you have missed out, I would highly recommend you to see following posts to boost your profile:

When I Joined Twitter, I started adding friends on a regular basis and in the end I see that I’m following almost 2K people and only 100 were following me. Now first thing I wanted to do is to remove those people who were not following me. Though, my approach was wrong, as I ended up following unlimited and un-targeted profile, but anyways, now when I have connected to many users, it’s bad idea to remove all. So, I decided to find such online tool which can let me quickly unfollow those people who have not followed me and later on get rid of those Twitter profiles which doesn’t add any value. I usually use this service after one month and remove them.
