“Have you ever wondered how your brand could automatically mass unfollow twitter accounts fast? Well, let’s look at some of the best, free twitter unfollow tools for businesses and marketers in 2019 and beyond”
Are you aware that most people follow you on Twitter just to get a follow back?
Yes, that’s right and I’m pretty sure you know that already!
Majority of times, Twitter users simply follow your accounts just to get a follow back and once you do (or do not) follow them back, they quickly hit the unfollow button then move on to the next Twitter user.
In point of fact, there are tons of Twitter automation tools on the internet today that help out with this process of following and unfollowing.
In today’s blog post, we’re going to be looking at some of the most efficient Twitter unfollow tools for small businesses in 2019 even as we approach 2020. But before that, let’s briefly go through some important topics as regards unfollowing on Twitter.
Prior to this post, we did our research and found out that a lot of people were searching for certain terms and asking specific questions relating to “Twitter unfollowing”.
Therefore, we decided it would be a better idea we turn this list-post into a more comprehensive guide as opposed to the 1000s of other blog writers who simply mention complicated unfollow tools, hit publish and let you in the dark without answering other burning questions or going in depth.
Firstly, Why Do You Need to Unfollow People on Twitter?
There may be several reasons users choose to unfollow accounts they initially followed but the real question your business or brand should be asking is;
How do we unfollow the right way, that grows our accounts?
How do we mass unfollow in a way that increases our followers rather than decrease it?
Well, growing a Twitter account requires a mix of finding relevant accounts to follow and unfollowing the “unhealthy” accounts you followed. What then are the unhealthy accounts and how do you know them?
In Twitter today, there a tens of millions of bots or fake accounts. These basically act on programs or ‘fake people’ to carry out malicious activities on the platform. Nonetheless, Twitter has recently been setting new strict policies to minimize these bot activities and drive them away from the network.
As a business, you don’t want to get followed by fake accounts, bots or spam profiles because they just add follower counts but never improve profile engagements. This is why we advise that you always brief through a Twitter profile before you hit that follow button.
But here’s the thing;
What if you use a social media management (or automation tool)?
Maybe you don’t even have enough time to go through every Twitter account that you follow.
This can pile up a heck load of spam accounts and bots to your twitter page and as a business brand, you wouldn’t want that. Personal twitter accounts could go away with this but is definitely not healthy for your business.
Finding and unfollowing these unhealthy accounts is a valid way of improving your twitter marketing performance. In fact, you can get more followers by unfollowing. How’s that?
The more bots you follow, the more bots you will get as follow backs. This will affect your engagement rates thus lower reach, website clicks, conversions and return on investment on your twitter efforts.
You can set out 10-20 minutes each week to finding and unfollowing bad accounts you’ve followed. For example, here at Uniclix, we’ve made it a habit to unfollow certain twitter users on our twitter page and here are the category of accounts we consider as bots or spam users.
- Inactive in the past 30-90 days.
- No profile picture, cover image and bio.
- Follow way more users than the “Followers”.
- Bio is written but doesn’t tell (well) of the page or does not specify what the page is all about. Here are 2 examples;
Finding and unfollowing these accounts will allow your twitter brand grow healthier, better and faster.
How to Unfollow Bad Twitter Accounts?
Now you know that you must keep your twitter accounts healthy by unfollowing bad accounts, how do you go about unfollowing these accounts the right way?
How to Unfollow Bad Twitter Accounts?
- Find Inactive accounts
Find these accounts that are negatively affecting your twitter brand.
- Use Twitter Unfollow Tool
Use twitter unfollow tools to automatically unfollow these accounts quickly.
Repeat every week.
Now here’s the thing;
If you’re already following thousands of twitter users, how do you begin to unfollow such a huge number?
Fortunately there are a few good social media management tools that can help your business out.
Also, you need to know who unfollowed you and then unfollow them back. You can either do it manually, which takes a lot of time or get an efficient twitter unfollow tool to do this for you.
For instance, with our very own tool, Uniclix, we automatically check your profile to find inactive users and recent unfollowers so you get to save hours weekly from this task.
