  • Alexander says:

    Nice list. Unfortunately Tweepi no longer has the unfollow feature which made it very powerful if not the most powerful tool out there. Crowdfireapp.com is the closest to it now I think.

  • Abid Kunda says:

    Hello Srikanth.
    Very informative and exhaustive post. Dripping with lots of useful info. I’m using a few of these tools, epecially tweepi and ManageFlitter. But the main problem is that recently Twitter has placed a cap on a lot of activities like Unfollowing inactive users etc, so is there a way to getting around that? I would love to know if you or other readers could share their knowledge.
    Great job and keep up the good work!
    Regards
