If you google questions like how to bulk / mass remove my Twitter followers, or how to delete my old tweets, retweets, etc., the answers will be an echoing NO! What you’ll see on the top of the search result pages (SERPs) is that Twitter doesn’t allow you to bulk remove or delete your followers.

This is a serious drawback for us because there may be lots of reasons why we want to delete our tweets or followers. After all, “the only thing that is constant is change itself.”

We change our minds on certain issues along the way. We may not resonate with some followers anymore, or we want no more to keep seeing their activities on our timelines.

Or, we’ve maybe been going through tough times lately and believe a well-rounded spring cleaning on your Twitter account will help relieve and give some motivation to start it all from scratch.

Nevertheless, we’ve got a big hamper upon us while going toward a fresh start on Twitter. The relief that may come up with a full-fledged Twitter cleaning may turn into a long nightmare if you have lots of cleaning to do.

Let me explain you why this is the case.

We shall assume having 1,000 followers to delete or remove. Adding on top of that, let’s have tens of thousands of likes, retweets, tweets, mentions, and replies to get rid of.

Even though these figures may seem exaggerated to you, believe me, they are not. Simple math says having ten daily retweets, likes, etc. piles up to a thousand in just a few months!

In this hypothetical (but very likely) scenario, you’ll repeat the deleting process thousands of times, over and over again! This is a hell of a nightmare that will go on for a long time if you once jump into that.

This is because Twitter does not let you mass delete your tweets, retweets, likes, and so on.

Notwithstanding, I have good news for you. An excellent nightmare repellent is at your disposal if you get rid of all these repetitive & boring processes. Use Circleboom Twitter and quickly get rid of followers, delete old tweets (including those posted longer than one year ago), erase Twitter archives, and so on.

So to speak, the features that Circleboom Twitter offers users are amazing. It’s a perfect tool that saved me from all the troubles mentioned above. I cleaned up my entire Twitter account within ten seconds or so!

So, I thought it’d be super helpful if I explained to you each service of Circleboom Twitter in more detail and showed you how you can use the tool for yourselves.

In the rest of this article, I’ll demonstrate how you can mass remove or force unfollow followers, delete old tweets (by categories like keywords, post date), retweets, along with likes, mentions…

How to mass remove your followers using Circleboom Twitter

Circleboom Twitter Tool helps “bulk or mass unfollow” your followers. In doing so, the tool offers you two options.

First, you can remove all your followers without selecting any filter to sort your followers. This way, you’re done removing all your followers with a click.

Second, the tool allows you to sort your bot (fake/spam) followers or verified Twitter accounts. This feature is practical for many reasons.

For instance, you may not want to remove all your followers. Let’s say you want to delete only the egghead followers (with no profile pictures). Perhaps, you’d merely prefer to keep the verified (blue ticked) accounts in your follower lists.

What’s more, Circleboom Twitter saves you from inactive, ghost, or too active accounts. Whichever bothers you, you can click on the default options below, and voila — they’re history!

Or, if you have too many fake followers (i.e., bots), you can delete them all and clean your account in seconds.
