The need to get rid of inactive Twitter accounts and how to do it

. 3 min read
If you don't want to lose time using the guide below, you can immediately remove your Twitter followers with Circleboom! ⬇️

Twitter sees a lot of regular and irregular users wherein some users may tweet 10 times a day while others may not log in for months. Inactive Twitter accounts are accounts that have been created but not used by Twitter users for a good time like a few weeks to months or years. Inactive accounts could be also termed as accounts that may log in to lurk but do not engage in any Twitter activity like liking, retweeting, commenting, or tweeting.

Should You Bother Delete Inactive Twitter Accounts

So, yes, there are inactive Twitter accounts that you might be following, but should you care to unfollow them? I have a few reasons why this would make sense:

  • Inactive accounts may never tweet again. There’s a good probability that if an account has been inactive for a long, it won’t come back to the tweet.
  • Such accounts may belong to people who do not interact with other Twitter accounts. So, there’s a high chance that they will never interact with your Twitter account too.
  • These could be bot accounts that have been created by some apps and never brought to use.
  • They hamper your follower-following ratio on Twitter. For a lot of Twitter users, it matters. And, if you are one of those, getting rid of inactive Twitter accounts would be the best decision to lower the number of accounts you follow.

Unfollowing inactive accounts can be useful as you will only interact with active Twitter followers and keep your account clean of unnecessary accounts. Having learned the need to unfollow inactive accounts, let’s learn how to do so.

How To Remove Inactive Twitter Accounts

You can easily find the list of all the inactive accounts that you follow with the help of Circleboom Twitter.
