How to Mass Unfollow Everyone on Twitter

twitter

If you have been on Twitter for some time, you may find that when you login you are getting loads of junk tweets that you are not really interested in. This is probably because you have followed a number of people without even thinking about it. But, what if you want a clean start and unfollow EVERYONE that you are currently following on Twitter?

Well, we are here to help! – Keep scrolling down!

You can watch our video guide below or follow the detailed written instructions instructions.

Instructions

For the purposes of this guide we are using our competition test bot that has been collecting followers for a few weeks for us.

First of all, make sure that you have downloaded and installed Google Chrome (download from here). Then open Google Chrome and login to the Twitter account that you want to unfollow everyone on.

Once you are successfully logged on, you should then go to this link:

https://twitter.com/following

This will now bring up all of the Twitter accounts that you are currently following:

Then, with your Google Chrome window being active, press the following keys on your keyboard:

For WindowsCtrl + Shift + J
For Mac: Cmd + Opt + J

When you do this, it should bring up the console window within your Google Chrome browser and look something like this:

Then, in the console window you should enter the following code:

Also ensure that you change the drop down to be “top” like below:

So your console window should look something like this:

3

Then simply press the Enter key on your keyboard and it will start to unfollow everyone you are currently following. Note that if you are following 1000’s of people, it can take a few minutes to complete but you will see it in progress so do not close your browser or you will have to start again.

As you can now see from below, we were following 2407 accounts, but now it is back down to zero:

    Thank you for this post, My account was hacked and following 800+ users. Manually unfollowed 50 of them before finding your post. Big Time Saver!!!!

    There’s something like this but just to unfollow who does not followe me back? Some filter like this? Thanks

    Here’s a version for the people who recently got hacked with hundreds of new followers they don’t want. Copy this and then do the last step:

    i=0;
    var refreshIntervalId = setInterval(function(){t=$(“.js-follow-btn”).eq(i);
    if(!t[0])window.scrollTo(0,$(document).height());
    else t.trigger(“click”)
    i++;},300);

    To stop the automatic scrolling enter this:

    clearInterval(refreshIntervalId);

    my account was compromised for the second time… following 400 people I’ve never heard of. Huge time saver. Thank you. Matt Visk, founder at http://www.portfoliolounge.com

    Excellent. Thank you!

  6. Pete says:

    This does not work on my mac. I get to the Twitter/following page, hit option-command-j. The console window opens but looks nothing like yourr console window. I can select bouncer flow but I do not have Preserve Log, Show all messages. AND I do not have the next line, ie, 7 NO chrome-extension://, etc. What am I doing wrong?

  9. Levi King says:

    My account was compromised and it followed over 700 other accounts within two days. Thanks for this fix.

    Wow! This is exactly what I needed.. My Twitter account was hacked (months ago) and I just noticed. I emailed Twitter asking how to mass delete and they’ve decided that replying with autobots would be the best way to handle my issue. THANK YOU! Easy peasy!

  11. Laney says:

    Please make an Instagram one for this. This was truly amazing and helped me so much. Thank you.

  12. Ben Dixon says:

    Thank you so much! This was amazingly helpful!

  13. Yoav Schwartz says:

    just set the interval to 1000 (instead of 100) and you won’t hit the rate limit 🙂 Works great!

  14. muzramp says:

    Awesome guide, thank you. Is there a way to do this with Instagram

  15. Vince Aggrippino says:

    This worked fairly well for me. I went from following nearly 900 people to 0 in just a few minutes. It didn’t work perfectly, however. After pasting in the Javascript code it would unfollow a bunch of people then seemed to get stuck. All I needed to do was refresh twitter/following and paste the code again. Maybe the interval time is too low? There were error messages, but I ignored them.

  16. Cindy Robin says:

    Hi. I copied and pasted the code, and got the following:

    Uncaught type error: cannot read property ‘queryselector’ of undefined
