How Mass Unfollow Your Following On Twitter

How Mass Unfollow Your Following On Twitter

This past week I’ve decided that some of my twitter accounts have gotten unwieldy with the auto-follow features set to “ON”. At first, I took my Twitter following list and purged all the tweeters that are, well, not tweeters – since they haven’t sent a tweet in over 90 days.  I was able to filter the twitter people I follow list based on date of last tweet and then do a mass unfollow via a service called untweeps. But that wasn’t enough.  What I really wanted was to “start over” as some other famous Twitteratti have done. But tools like Twitter Karma have disabled the mass unfollow feature. So I tweeted for help.  And @xanpearson came to the rescue. She had recently suggested a list of 30 different twitter friend management tools to check out.  And there were plenty to poke around with. So far, ReFollow.com has a decent interface and it does the bulk unfollow feature I have been searching for. There’s a bunch of other neat features that this site does.  It’s definitely worth checking out if you want to manage your follower/following lists in...
How To Sync Twitter Tweets With Facebook Status Updates

How To Sync Twitter Tweets With Facebook Status Updates

Most of my friends think I live on Facebook and Twitter because they see so many tweets and FB status updates stream across both social media platforms all day every day. The truth of the matter is that I spend 1/2 the time they think I am on both sites. How? I have a Facebook-Twitter application which takes anything I tweet and it automatically posts it to my Facebook status immediately. Thus, my Facebook status feed looks well populated throughout the day and week. The truth is that I may not log into Facebook for a week at a time, but it sure looks like I’m over there (another great tip is that you can both read and respond to Facebook posts outside of www.Facebook.com with TweetDeck. Now whenever I tweet, it will automatically sync my Facebook status update with the same thing! 1) Click on GOODIES at the bottom of any page at www.twitter.com 2) You’ll see and option for WIDGETS – so you can update FB or website pages. 3) Click on FACEBOOK so that we can find and install the FB app. 4) Click on FACEBOOK APPLICATION to go to the install link 5) Finally, you will see the INSTALL TWITTER IN FACEBOOK button. Click it! If you’re not logged into your Facebook account already, it will ask you to and you’re on your way! QUESTION: What’s your Twitter and or Facebook URL? Share it...
How To Bulk Unfollow Twitter Snoozers From Your List

How To Bulk Unfollow Twitter Snoozers From Your List

Twittering is a way of life.  Either you tweet or you don’t.  There’s no half-way in between. You can’t just log in once in a blue moon and expect others to think you’re part of the Twitterverse community.  What other group would embrace you with open arms if you showed up just 3 times in 2010 for example? Spring is around the corner and that got me thinking of Spring cleaning for my Twitter follow list.  It’s time to pare down my follow list to those that I really have a real interest, connection or excuse to follow. I found a great little web-app at http://www.untweeps.com that lets you identify who on your Twitter follow lists has NOT tweeted in __ days. Just input the cutoff and you’re ready for a 1-click bulk unfollow. I filtered my follow list to see who hasn’t showed up in 100 days. Just like that, my Twitter follow list was pared down by over a 100 people for one of my Twitter accounts. There’s other bulk unfollow tools that let you see who’s not reciprocating a follow, those that are spammy, etc.  But this is the first place I think most people should go when trying to clean out their following list. What other Twitter UNFOLLOW sites do you use to manage your lists?  Please leave a comment...
