4 Tools to Help You Unfollow People on Twitter in Bulk

For starters, I want to encourage everyone NOT to consider using a mass following tool on Twitter. You will end up with XXX pics, marketing blasts and people who are not meant to line up with your values, brand and life.  And come on…can you really market with 10,000 people???  If you are mass building to sell your stuff 10 times a day every day, then people will get ticked off and drop you from their list.

So, this morning, I went out and started mass unfollowing people in these categories (Just as a note…Twitter has put the hammer down on people who are mass following…you cannot follow more people than are following you.)

1. People who are following me but who aren’t really using Twitter…say they have not posted in 60 days

2. People who have XXX photos

3. People who say things like “Buy drugs online cheap”

4. Anything with the word viagra or cialis  in it

5. People who I have followed but who are not following me back

6. Other people who are out on Twitter but who I just don’t think we are ever going to hit it off.

7. People who are sending me messages multiple times a day about buying their shoes, drugs, etc.

So, I cleaned out about 1200 people in 30 minutes using these tools (be careful about unfollowing people you know…check through the list before you mass unfollow and uncheck any people you want to stay connected with…even if they are not using Twitter, you don’t want to create ill will:)

Twitblock (Block people who look like they are spam suspicious..you will know when you see their user name and photo)

Twitter Karma (You can hand select folks who you don’t know or who you have never connected with)

Untweeps (Unfollow people who signed up for Twitter and never use it!)

Buzzom (unfollow people who are not following you back…super quick!)

I still have some clean-up to do, but it is coming along!.
