Twitter Mass Unfollow [2019 Updated]

How-to-Mass-Unfollow-on-Twitter

Update: 20th October 2019 – This process do not seem to work now. However, we have another way of carrying out the same fuction using iMacros. You can see that guide here.

Time for a Twitter mass unfollow? Is your Twitter full of people that you have followed over the years and you just want a big clear out?

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? Then you want to carry out a Twitter mass unfollow.

Well, we are here to help!

NOTE: Want to mass unfollow on Instagram? Click here for a guide to do it!

Twitter Mass Unfollow Video Guide

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

Step by Step Guide

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

Use Google Chrome

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.

Login to Twitter

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:

Twitter Mass Unfollow

Running the script

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

For Windows: Ctrl + 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:

Twitter Unfollow Code

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

i=0;
setInterval(function(){t=$(".js-follow-btn").eq(i);
if(!t[0])window.scrollTo(0,$(document).height());
else t.trigger("click")
i++;},1000)

Getting an error?

The above code can sometimes get the syntax wrong when you copy and paste it – so, if the script does not work first time, check the syntax, like the speech marks “” – delete them and retype them manually. It should then work – if you still have any problem with them, please contact us on either Facebook or Twitter and we will help where we can.

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

Google Chrome Twitter Code

So your console window should look something like this:

Twitter Google Chrome

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.

Let the unfollowing commence!

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

How to remove connections on LinkedIn

LinkedIn HP

Most professional people these days seem to have a LinkedIn account and it is very quickly turning into a marketing persons dream. I get a huge amount of sales and marketing people emailing and phoning me constantly trying to sell me stuff I nor my business want. Whenever I query where they got my details from, the answer is usually “LinkedIn”.

This, of course, is completely my own fault for putting my contact details on LinkedIn and also by blindly accepting anyone that adds me.

So, I have loads of people I don’t know (and don’t want to know!) as connections on my LinkedIn and I want to remove them – but how do you remove a LinkedIn connection?

Mobile Devices

It’s not possible to remove a connection from a mobile device – this is important that you know this as I spend quite some time on my iPad and iPhone trying to figure out how to remove a connection!

To remove a connection from the desktop website:

  • Go to the connection’s profile
  • Move your cursor over the arrow icon next to the button in the top section of the profile
  • Select Remove connection
  • Review the list of effects of removing the connection and click Remove

You can remove several connections at once on the Contacts page:

  • Move your cursor over Connections at the top of your homepage and select Keep in Touch
  • Click Filter by and select Connections Only
  • Check the box next to the connections you’d like to remove
  • Click More above the first connection and select Remove from Contacts
  • Review the list of effects of removing the connections and click Remove

You can also remove individual connections from the Contacts page by clicking More under their name and selecting Remove Connection. Connections you remove will no longer be a 1st-degree connection and will no longer appear in your Contacts section.

Before you remove any connections though, you should note the following:

  • When you remove a connection, they won’t be notified.
  • After removing a connection, any recommendations or endorsements between you and that person will be withdrawn. They will not be restored if the connection is re-established.
  • Only the member who breaks the connection can re-initiate that connection.

COMMENTS

If you have any questions about this, or if you have a story about getting battered with spam emails and calls as a direct result of your LinkedIn profile, we would love to hear from you so please leave a comment below using our comments section.
