Unfollow people who don’t follow you back
Twitter can be overwhelming to keep track of when you’ve been on for a while. Inevitably you find spammers on your list, and many of those follow you and then unfollow after you follow so they can follow more and the cycle is crazy. Also some people will follow a ton of people, then decide they don’t really talk to that many and do a purge. And then people also change accounts or have multiple accounts (which can drive me crazy honestly) so you don’t need to hear what they say 3 times.
Anyway you are left with a bunch of people that don’t follow you and that you don’t really talk to. Now some people are just cool and you’ll want to keep on listening to their pearly words…
You may also have a large number of people that you follow that you have never seen or heard from and they may need to go too.
My favorite (and there are many services that do this, find 10 here…) is
What I like about this service is it lists the people in order, with nice size avatars and an easy unfollow button. You are limited to 50 a day, so you don’t make twitter think you are a crazy person. You only unfollow those you want to unfollow. Tweet about the service and you can unfollow up to 100 a day. You can also show fans that follow you but you don’t follow. Did I know I was not following Blissdom? NO WAY *smacks head! So many times I add people to tweetdeck streams and forget to actually follow them.
I think I’ll start checking in here once a month or so.
