Twitter – How To Get Off Inappropriate Twitter Lists of Others
(AKA: How Do I Remove Myself From this Stupid Twitter List!)
Twitter lists are a powerful twitter tool that allow us to more easily manage our followers by sorting them into public or private “groups”. Because majority of lists are public and have an incredibly high SEO value for such a simple tool, its important we keep an eye on these.
The problem isn’t really so much in our own lists… as it is when we end up on other people’s lists.
Now you WANT to get listed on niche related lists. Unfortunately it is all to easy to wind up on some stupid list that is either irrelevant or inappropriate or both!
How To Know What Twitter Lists You Are On
You can find out what lists you have been added to by going to your twitter profile. . In the upper right hand corner you will see “following”, “followers” and “listed”. This lets you see how many times you’ve been listed! The “listed” is a link you need to click.
Once you have clicked “listed” you will the lists, by owner and list name.
Now these lists are actually just fine, but lets pretend one was not. Lets just pretend that someone has listed me inappropriately at least for my business account.
In the list above you can see the list owners name, followed by the list name. If you click on that link, you will be taken to the list owners profile. That’s where we have to go to fix this!
It is possible to remove ourselves by reporting the individual as a spammer, but that’s awfully harsh if someone just has a silly list!
Sometimes though, we don’t have enough relationship with the person established to ask them to either rename their list just for us (ego!) or remove us (work!). Besides, they may happen to like their list just the way it is!
Steps To Remove Ourselves From An Inappropriate Twitter List:
1. Open the list owner’s profile
2. In the right-hand sidebar, scroll down until you see “Actions”.
3. Click BLOCK
4. Click UNBLOCK
5. Since that breaks the “follow” bond, you may wish to re-follow them.
6. Breathe a big sigh of relief.
That’s all there is to it! Easy Peasy!
If you like it, I’ve got some bookmark, share and syndicate buttons up there that are just begging for attention! (betcha didn’t know buttons could beg did ya? )
