Twit Cleaner

Posted by on Feb 21, 2010

What, another Twitter related thing? Yes indeed, but man, this is another great one.

The Twit Cleaner is an online program that will analyze every person you’re following and tell you things about them that you may not have been paying attention to. For instance, when it ran through mine, it told me who sends out only links and never engages with anyone, who sends mainly spam messages, who hasn’t been around for awhile, who’s not following you, and a couple other things.

Once you’re done, you have the chance to go through the list, determine who you want to keep following, and then, if you’re following fewer than 2,000 people, you can click the button and it will start unfollowing people. It’s careful not to unfollow everyone at once, as I guess it worries about triggering a Twitter reaction of some kind, but eventually it will eliminate all the folks you tell it to.

In my case, it highlighted 378 people I was following as actionable, and I decided to save fewer than 10 of those folks. So, at some point my follow number will be reduced by 368 folks, people who won’t even know I’ve dropped them since Twit Cleaner basically said they don’t interact with me anyway.

This is crucial, and it’s great. A major lament has been that social media hasn’t proven to be all that social, and you’ve seen me gripe about it often enough. The way Twitter had it set up, it would have taken me hours to go through my list and weed out many of these people. This is great, and I’m happy to share it with y’all.

I like Twit Cleaner: reports what it calls dodgy behavior – tweeting nothing but links as well as users who sell, sell, sell. Ahehehe. And it reports those who have been inactive for months!

But unfollowing in bulk requires a fee. And at that I beat a hasty retreat. Maybe when I earn a little from AdSense. Maybe then. 🙂

Ah Jan, you only pay a fee if you’re unfollowing more than 2,000 at a time in bulk. I didn’t have to worry about numbers like that; do you?

February 24th, 2010 | 11:02 AM

Eek, I hope I remain on your list. 🙂 I’m off to check out the cleaner for myself. I’ll likely have a list of 10 when all is done as I don’t get a lot of interaction via Twitter. lol

You’re social on Twitter as well, Rose, so you’re safe. And it’s not always interaction with you; I think we just like to know that people will be social sometimes, whether it’s with us or not.

Sorry to resurrect this comments thread, just tried this out and it’s awesome, thanks a lot for sharing it.

November 27th, 2010 | 5:46 AM

Glad it worked for you, Gabriele; I use it all the time.

November 27th, 2010 | 10:21 AM

Even though I don’t use Twitter, I love the idea of a Twit Cleaner. If only that could be used in ‘real life’! 😉

Mitch Mitchell:

Val, we don’t need it in real life because it’s easy to get away from people that irritate us lol

July 10th, 2011 | 4:51 PM

Thanks for sharing this tool. It helps 🙂

September 12th, 2011 | 8:13 PM

I had never heard of this so I just decided to check it out. How long does it take to generate a report? I tell you, you come up with some of the coolest things that opens up my social media mind just a little bit more. Thanks!

Mitch Mitchell:

Bev, the first time it can take a long while; after that, if you’re gotten rid of a lot of people, it won’t take as long. By now I’m sure you’ve gotten your first report and you’re probably in shock. lol
