How to remove Twitter followers who don't engage

. 5 min read

Aren't you tired of tweeting but getting no response at all? It's no different than speaking in a crowded room, but everyone just ignores you.

Having a lot of inactive followers that don't engage with your tweets is pretty much the same. Maybe, you regularly tweet and post even attractive tweets, but you don't get the engagement or popularity you deserve.

Apart from your own account, I'm sure you've already run into accounts having the same issue. I've seen, for instance, loads of Twitter users with thousands of followers but get 20-30 likes on average for their tweets.

There are two main reasons why this is the case. The followers are either

In either case, the Twitter accounts with low engagement rates due to inactive/fake followers give a negative impression on the outside. This is both annoying and harmful, especially if you're using Twitter as a showcase of your online identity.

Plus, if you also happen to utilize the platform for marketing purposes (like influencer and affiliate marketing), brands not only check your follower count but also your engagement rates. And they accordingly decide if you're a suitable person for promoting their products.

So, it's highly crucial to spot and remove inactive followers who don't engage with your tweets and lower your engagement rates.

Nevertheless, checking every single follower of yours and detecting if they're active on Twitter is just a hell of a pain! Plus, if you have loads of followers who don't engage with your posts, it takes forever to remove them.

Instead, Circleboom Twitter analyzes your followers and automatically spots and lists your inactive followers. That way, you can quickly remove your inactive followers who decrease your engagement rates.

All in All

Having low reactions from followers is upsetting and annoying. It feels like you speak before an audience and like they focus on something else.

Posting tweets with a lot of inactive followers that don't engage with them is pretty much the same thing.

This becomes a serious issue apart from being an annoying nuance in your life if you use Twitter for marketing purposes or if you use the platform for showcasing yourself.

For all these reasons, detecting and deleting inactive followers who don't engage with your tweets and lowering your engagement rates is essential.

Yet, constantly checking all followers if they're active or not is just exhausting! Plus, if you have loads of followers, it takes forever to detect & remove them.

Instead of spending long hours checking your Twitter accounts, Circleboom Twitter offers you a remarkable feature to investigate your followers and spot your inactive followers (in seconds).

What's more, cleaning up your accounts of inactive accounts that don't engage will give you a better follow/following ratio and an accurate estimation of your Twitter connections.
