Over the time, I realise, removing people from our friend list is as important as following the new one. Eespecially 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 unfollowed 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), influencers ( To stay updated with interesting tweets), I follow people that I meet online or offline, or people I wish to connect. Sometimes many of these individuals don’t reciprocate and miss out on making a genuine connection. It’s a good idea to unfollow those users and try to make a connection with them later on. Of course, you should wait few months or at least weeks before you unfollow these people.
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.
