Twitter Unfollow Tool

Some Twitter users follow many Twitter accounts to get follow backs when they are new to Twitter. But, when they don’t get enough follow backs, they want to unfollow the Twitter accounts who didn’t follow them back.

There’s no definite way on Twitter to find a Twitter account who’s not following back your on Twitter, except for Circleboom Twitter’s Not Following Back feature. You can look at your followers and followings but not at those accounts who don’t follow back.

More often than not, if you’re on Twitter to grow your Twitter followers and promote your business, you want to maintain a healthy follower-following ratio.

Getting rid of accounts who do not follow back requires you to use a Twitter unfollow tool.

Remove Twitter Followers with A Code

You can unfollow Twitter followers by inserting a code.

You should follow these steps:

  1. Open https://twitter/following
  2. Open the dev console (ctrl + shift + J or cmd + shift + J on Mac)
  3. Highlight and copy the code below.
  4. Paste the copied code into your dev console.
  5. Enter any usernames of non-followers you’d like to keep following
  6. Press ‘Enter’
  7. That’s it! You unfollowed all followers you want on Twitter.

const userField = document.getElementsByClassName(“ProfileCard-userFields”);
const input = window.prompt(“Enter any usernames you want to continue following separated by a space.”);
let inputMax = window.prompt(“Enter maximum number of seconds to wait between actions. Must be greater than ‘2’.”);
let i = 0;
let t = 0;
let inputFound = [];
let saveNames = input.split(“ “);
let rand = Math.round(Math.random() * 10000);
let setMin = 2000;
let setMax = inputMax * 1000;
main();

function main(){
if(inputMax > 2){
randomIntFromInterval(setMin,setMax);
unfollowLoop();
findUsers();
}else{
inputMax = window.prompt(“Please enter a number great than 2”);
setMax = inputMax * 1000;
main();
}
}

function findUsers(){
if(t < userField.length){
for(u = 0; u < saveNames.length; u++){
if(userField[t].children[1].innerText.includes(saveNames[u])){
inputFound[t] = true;
break;
}else{
inputFound[t] = false;
}
}
t++;
if(t < userField.length){
findUsers();
}
}
}

function randomIntFromInterval(min,max)
{
rand = Math.floor(Math.random()*(max-min+1)+min);
return rand;
}

function unfollowLoop(){
let button = userField[i].previousElementSibling.children[0].children[0].children[0].children[1];
let buttonText = button.innerText;
let stat = userField[i].children[1].children[2];
let follows = “”;

if(stat === undefined){
follows = “”;
}else{

follows = stat.innerText;
}

setTimeout(function(){
if(follows.includes(“Follows you”) === false && inputFound[i] === false && buttonText.includes(“Following”) === true){
button.click();
}
i++;
if(i < userField.length){
randomIntFromInterval(setMin,setMax);
unfollowLoop();
}else{
window.alert(“Unfollow Script Finished!”);
}
}, rand);
}

Whitelist Twitter Accounts you Don’t wish to Unfollow

There are several Twitter accounts of celebrities, politicians, and brands that you follow to stay updated, but they will most likely not follow you back.

To ensure that you keep all your interesting profiles in your list and don’t unfollow them, you can whitelist their account from the Circleboom dashboard.

While you’re selecting accounts to unfollow from the “lost focus” list, there’s a green icon that helps you whitelist accounts. Instead of visiting the profile URL and unfollow, click on the green icon and those accounts will be whitelisted.

You can later visit the “whitelist” section under the “The Circle” section to check your list of whitelisted accounts.

Be Mindful of Twitter Policies while Unfollowing Accounts

Twitter has strict policies on how often you can unfollow accounts and how many accounts can be unfollowed at once. Twitter doesn’t permit bulk following and unfollowing, and doing so can result in an immediate account suspension.

While there are no clear numbers on how many accounts can be unfollowed at a time, it’s best not to practice this aggressively. This is what Twitter has to say about following-unfollowing accounts:

“We monitor all accounts for aggressive following and follow churn (repeatedly following and unfollowing large numbers of other accounts).

You can read more about these, but 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.”

So, that’s a few simple steps on how Circleboom can help you with unfollowing Twitter accounts who don’t follow back. Check out other Twitter features of Circleboom before you signup for the free plan.
