Unfollow Inactive Twitter Accounts in 2 steps!

By  | 

Twitter has been influenced by bots for such a long time that it’s hard to know how many Twitter users are real. I’m sure if anyone of you will perform a Twitter audit right now, you will be shocked by the number of fake and inactive Twitter accounts that you follow.

Inactive Twitter accounts could be any Twitter accounts that exist but do not involve in any Twitter activity like tweets, retweets, or likes. Some of these accounts could be bots that have been created for Twitter follow-unfollow but have never been used to send out actual tweets. Others could be real Twitter users who joined Twitter but haven’t used it over a period of time.

Whatever be the reason for a Twitter account to be inactive, there’s no reason for you to continue following them. Most of the inactive Twitter accounts do not make any difference to your Twitter feed because they never engage with any Twitter content.

How to Unfollow Inactive Twitter Accounts:

Tools like Circleboom make it very easy for everyone to unfollow inactive Twitter accounts. In a few minutes, you can get rid of all those Twitter accounts that are inactive, fake, spammy, and do not follow you back.

Another Method to Unfollow Inactive Accounts:

Another way to get rid of inactive Twitter accounts using Circleboom is by using the tweet filter.

    Hi Harshita, when you look for inactive followers can we set the inactive time, say 60 days or 120 days? Do you have a trial period for the full pro version before paying? Finally, if we sign up for the single site pro version, like circleboom, and want to add our other businesses Twitter accounts will we a receive a proportion refund on it and have the Twitter account transferred to a multi pro account?

    Many thanks.

      Hi Chris,
      “Inactive menu” shows, the accounts didn’t send a tweet last 30 days. But, in the meantime, The Grid’s default order is the last -known- activity date which is not shown as a column on the grid which means we’re always trying to list active accounts on Grid.
      And, we offer a freemium plan with some follow/unfollow limitations. Almost all of the features can be used with the freemium plan except Analytics, Whitelist and Blacklist modules. ( Follow and Unfollow limits to 225 and 325 respectively) . And please get in touch with the team for your questions related to subscriptions by e-mail. They will get back to you soon.
