Unfollow Inactive Twitter Accounts in 2 steps!

3 min readMar 7, 2019

Twitter has been influenced by bots for such a long time that it’s hard to know how many Twitter users are real. I’m sure if anyone of you will perform a Twitter audit right now, you will be shocked by the number of fake and inactive Twitter accounts that you follow.

Inactive Twitter accounts could be any Twitter accounts that exist but do not involve in any Twitter activity like tweets, retweets, or likes. Some of these accounts could be bots that have been created for Twitter follow-unfollow but have never been used to send out actual tweets. Others could be real Twitter users who joined Twitter but haven’t used it over a period of time.

Whatever be the reason for a Twitter account to be inactive, there’s no reason for you to continue following them. Most of the inactive Twitter accounts do not make any difference to your Twitter feed because they never engage with any Twitter content.

How to Unfollow Inactive Twitter Accounts:

Tools like Circleboom make it very easy for everyone to unfollow inactive Twitter accounts. In a few minutes, you can get rid of all those Twitter accounts that are inactive, fake, spammy, and do not follow you back.

Here’s how you can use Circleboom and unfollow inactive Twitter accounts in 2 steps:

  • Login to the Circleboom dashboard by authenticating your Twitter account. On your Circleboom dashboard, click on the “Unfollow” tab to access the drop-down. From the drop-down select “Inactive Twitter Accounts”
  • Now Circleboom will process for you all the inactive Twitter accounts and list them in front of you. You can simply click on the red Unfollow button next to every Twitter account to remove them from your Twitter following list.

Just these two simple steps will help you get rid of your inactive Twitter accounts. Circleboom can help you keep your Twitter account by unfollowing fake accounts as well. Follow the same process as above and select “Fake” to get rid of fake accounts from your Twitter profile.

Another Method to Unfollow Inactive Accounts:

Another way to get rid of inactive Twitter accounts using Circleboom is by using the tweet filter. By sorting your following list by number of tweets, you can check the accounts who are tweeting the least. Also, observing their joined date will confirm if the accounts are old and hardly been used. You can unfollow these accounts as they are definitely inactive.
