Starting from the basics, we all are taught to connect and interact with people on social media platforms in order to boost engagement and build relationships.
While this is a good practice, but in platforms like Twitter, we often develop a mass of people we follow but they eventually don’t follow us.
Having a lot of people who don’t follow us is not a good sign as twitter only allows you to follow only 2000 accounts more than the number of users who follow you.
If you are tired of unfollowing those non-followers manually or removing fake and inactive twitter profiles from time to time, this post will demonstrate the top 5 twitter unfollow tools to mass unfollow non-followers.
Why Should You Unfollow on Twitter?
Unfollowing on Twitter is most necessary when you are on it for a purpose. Here is why you are ethical when you unfollow twitter users:
- Unfollowing the non-followers will actually give you the chance to connect with more Twitter users. This is because you cannot follow more than 2000 people following you. It means if you don’t unfollow non-followers you are missing it out.
- You are always welcome to unfollow people who blast out tweets. This will help you lessen the clutter off your newsfeed.
- Unfollowing people not related or compatible with your business will make you have more time to concentrate with others who have enough opportunities for you.
