If you're looking for the answer to the question if it's possible to force unfollow, it is clear that you want to clean up your Twitter account. And you're no doubt looking for a quick and easy way to get rid of the users you don't want to be followed anymore.

The answer to the question is happily YES! You can force someone to unfollow you on Twitter. In other words, removing your followers without them having a clue what's on is a piece of cake.


Why Do You Need to Force Followers to Unfollow You On Twitter?

Many people on Twitter are buying followers to look more popular and important to others. They do it from some websites, and it is a huge market. Those websites always claim that their accounts are 'real' and 'authentic'. But, when people buy them, they will realize that they are mostly 'fake'. Then, they want to remove the fake Twitter accounts they bought.

The second reason for forcing followers to unfollow on Twitter is "online harassment." Especially popular people like politicians, artists, and business people suffer "character assassination" on social media or digital assassination. How? Their opponents or mal-intended people make a huge number of fake accounts to bulk follow these people on Twitter, Instagram, or other channels. Those fake accounts are mostly nude women posting pornographic content.
