MyCleener – cleanse your Twitter friends by tweet dates

MyCleener is a simple tool where it pulls the list of those you follow and shows you their last tweets.  This gives you the ability to get an indication of someone no longer using the service or maybe gave up.

If you are having issues keeping up with the stream, trimming it down is a good way to start.

They do take your username and password but even go so far as to tell you:

  • to change it before using the service if you want
  • they store the data temporarily in a hashed for to be deleted
  • or look at their stated source code yourself

I gave it a run and found out that that the longest it had been since a person I followed tweeted was over 7 months!  Off the list they go

  1. We’re so sorry!!!

    We are having some issues with our scalability, and people who are following too many people (we fixed a limit at 700) can’t access MyCleenr 😦

    We are very very very sorry about this issue, and we’re working hard on a better solution with pagination. We also have a day job, but we promise we’ll work on it as soon as we have some free time! If you want to know when this issue will be fixed, don’t hesitate to follow us on Twitter: @MyCleenr

  2. Interesting tool – thanks for the heads up! Would certainly help with cutting down numbers of people you follow, but I’m not sure it would make any difference if you’re struggling to keep up with your stream. After all, the whole premise is that you use this to unfollow people who aren’t tweeting anymore and so aren’t contributing to your stream.
