Follower Management

ManageTwitter – clean up and matter who you follow

ManageTwitter is a tool to help you guage the effectiveness of those that you follow.  Utilizing oAuth, you log in allow the service to get some information such as the following:

  • who is following you back
  • what accounts are dormant or quiet
  • what accounts are talkative

It will automatically suggest a number of people you can unfollow (mine came in at 63) with some great options.  The first one I noticed is the choice to select allor unselect all.  But the ability to unselect only verified accounts, was a big bonus.  Then a following option allowed you to unselect popular accounts.

This means that the verified or popular are more than likely huge accounts that do not follow many back (read this as stars and geek gods/goddesses).

I went through the choices to first see the accounts that have not tweeted in 30 days, with some surprising results.  Hovering over any name shows total tweets, numbers of followed and followers and how long ago the account was created.

This has been the easiest and quickest follower management tool to adjust who you follow.  Heck it even told me the number of people that unfollowed me with the tool,  Thank goodness it was only 1 (yet I tweet often and am active.  I hope they didn’t do what I almost did and forget to uncheck someone)
