Twitter Rules to Remember before Unfollowing on Twitter

In a recent news, Twitter has cut down the API access to three major Twitter tools to prevent aggressive following and unfollowing on Twitter. Twitter has also been actively removing those Twitter accounts that violate Twitter policies.

Amidst all these grand measures taken by Twitter to protect the platform, it’s important to understand that if you want to secure your account, you must abide by Twitter laws.

When it comes to unfollowing Twitter accounts, Twitter has no clear rules on the unfollow limit. This makes several Twitter users believe they can keep doing it continuously. Some of them get caught by Twitter’s smart API and lose their Twitter accounts.

In this article, I will briefly explain the most important Twitter rules that you need to keep in mind while unfollowing on Twitter.

Before you Unfollow on Twitter, remember that:

  • Twitter does not allow bulk follow and unfollow on their platform.

From the Twitter following rules:

Please note that Twitter does not permit any automated or bulk following or unfollowing behavior. Please review our automation rules and best practices for more information on automating your account.

  • Twitter prohibits aggressive unfollowing and following:

Twitter says:

You may not follow or unfollow Twitter accounts in a bulk, aggressive, or indiscriminate manner. Aggressive following is a violation of the Twitter Rules.

  • Twitter does not permit using any automation tools to unfollow Twitter accounts

As per Twitter:

If you don’t follow or unfollow hundreds of accounts in a single day, and you aren’t using automated methods of following accounts, you should be fine.

  • Twitter restricts using Twitter tools that do not follow Twitter rules:

According to the Twitter rules:

Automated applications or activities that violate these rules, or that facilitate or induce users to violate them, may be subject to enforcement action, including suspension of associated Twitter accounts.
