How To UnFollow Everyone On Twitter

 Sometimes You Just Want To Start Over!

 There’s oodles of reasons why you may arrive at a point of wanting to start over on twitter without giving up the existing account.

It’s very easy to change your twitter ID without losing followers… but what about when you want to keep the ID but tell the followers sayonara… so long… goodbye?

I previously had a blog post about a tool called “Unfollow All” but Twitter in their infinite wisdom – through the use of the API tool – both broke that tool and banned other similar tools from gaining access to the system. They said such behavior was “unnatural”.

Frankly that sucks.

Recently I had the need for the ability to do this – again – and found myself on the hunt for a way to dump the follower list on one of my twitter accounts.

It turns out that TweetAdder, which is a tool I’d bought but abandoned in favor of TweetSpinner (before TweetSpinner made a bunch of changes), actually had the capabilities I needed as long as I was willing to let it run for a while (sure, no problem there!)

TweetAdder gets around the twitter rule by making sure that the unfollows are done over time, slowly but consistently, and plenty fast enough for me while using the defaults to not get my twitter account banned (a common problem with tools like TweetAdder).

In this screenshot you can see that you use it to manage unfollows of people that have not followed you back based on your chosen number of days… however, there are more tools in that dropdown…

Now, under the “Who to UnFollow” you can see options to “UnFollow All Followers (except whitelist)”

The ability to whitelist or safelist to prevent unfollowing accounts you want to keep is really really powerful and one of the things that puts this ahead of former free tools.

 TweetAdder is actually a “swiss army knife” of twitter management features (many of which are powerful enough to get you in trouble if misused) and used skillfully can give you a lot of extra tools to make your twitter life easier. Using TweetAdder to unfollow everyone on your twitter account is just one of its many uses!

Hey Kim

Thanks for the tips and especially TweetAdder

I am not going to go out and unfollow everyone so having a whitelist is important.

Well, this is something that every Twitter user will need. Although I am not keen about unfollowing “everyone” this will help to unfollow the masses. It’s always good to clean up the clutter :) Thanks Kim!

Now this is something that I’d like to check out. It’s actually a lot more forgiving than just automatically unfollowing everyone, and certainly easier than doing it one by one. Twitter’s certainly grown a lot more convenient these days.

Hi Kim,

That is indeed a very interesting post ! Something new for me, and I would surely try out the unfollow option and TweetAdder, though I wonder if people we unfollow, would also do the same and we may loose out on the number of followers!
