Why Twitter Users are searching for the answer to “Who Unfollowed Me and Why?”

Why Twitter Users are searching for the answer to “Who Unfollowed Me and Why?”

. 3 min read

The most important reason is, to be fame. Let’s accept that, people want to be fame, want to be followed and, the crowds follow famous people everywhere (on Twitter) to see how they live, what they share or learn how to be one like them. People have the idea of “if you have a higher follower/friend ratio, more popular you are.” It is the (Twitter) nature of being popular. Whereas famous people do not want to follow other users.

Having a high Twitter follower/friend ratio is a reflection of this basic human instinct which encourages you to be a famous person.
If people try to understand, they can see that it is only their ego.

The main reason for social media is to reach more people. The way to do it is to have more followers. It is normal to want
your follower count to be as much as possible to deliver your message. However, having lots of friends does not affect your purpose. Only the quality and the number
of your followers will determine how many audiences you’ll reach. That’s why you should also follow your followers.

There are two main reasons to find out “Who unfollowed me and why?”;

  1. People feel important when they are seen as popular. It is not a must to accomplish your goals. The real thing is to focus on having “quality” followers related to your main purpose. To find the right audience, focus on “Circleboom Smart Search” filters.smart-search-1

As Circleboom, we provide you with many filters and options to help you unfollow the correct profiles. So you can decide who to unfollow first.

Can I delete old tweets by year? Yes, in 2 steps!
“That summer of 2015 wasn’t a good year at all. All those tweets I sent out in that year, I wish I could delete them all at once.” Do you feel the same? Is your Twitter account carrying regrets from the past too? If you have a lot of tweets that you are remorseful of and want to delete old tweets, …

Here is a hidden gem we’d like to talk about, a Circleboom filter that we haven’t mentioned before. Use “Don’t show the profiles I’ve just followed within last 1- 60 day(s)” filter when you’re on any “Unfollow Page.” The reason for that, some of the people you follow may not be much active. Sometimes they do not see the notification that you followed them. On the unfollow page you can set the number of days, and filter out these people to prevent an unfollow action by mistake.

To reach a broader audience and find the right people to follow or unfollow, you can always use Circleboom for free.
