How can I check my fake, spam, and inactive followers?

. 4 min read

Do you want to check your Twitter followers? If you do, you are in the right place!

On July, 11th, Twitter announced that they would remove locked accounts from follower counts. And most of these accounts are fake, spam, or inactive followers.

“Most people will see a change of four followers or fewer; others with larger follower counts may experience a more significant drop, We are removing locked accounts from follower counts.”

To us, this was excellent news for the Twitter community because Twitter users regularly want to clean up their accounts. Although it is a good start, removing the locked accounts is not enough to clean up your Twitter account.  Apart from locked ones, there are lots of suspended accounts, fake accounts, and inactive or eggheads accounts, which are also considered by users to be cleaned up.  You may also consider checking who is not following you back or, who unfollowed you and unfollow them.

Circleboom Twitter, a comprehensive Twitter account management tool, enables you to clean up your account from bottom to top. You can see fake accounts, inactive accounts that have not Tweeted for a while, and unfollowers who have not followed you back or unfollowed you.

After detecting these Twitter accounts among your followers, you can remove these Twitter followers and clean your Twitter account. You can also check our detailed guide here:
