Unfollow! How to Unclutter Your Twitter And Instagram
Posted on 12 January 2015
“Out with the old, and in with the new.” The classic New Year’s mantra. While we are just almost two weeks into to the new year, we’re all into how we’re going to live better.
So before you take on all your new projects, why not do a little social media cleanse? Yes, that means unclutter your feeds by unfollowing people. Now I don’t mean you should just unfollow everyone, you do use your social media to you know, engage with the world. But for various reasons you may find that the people you loved following before either are no longer on Twitter or Instagram, or maybe they aren’t posting content that you relate to anymore. Or maybe they unfollowed you, so there’s that social media question: How good does someone have to be to follow them when they aren’t following you?
ANYWAY! Back in the day there used to be a ton of unfollowing apps, a lot of which are now defunct. Except I hear Tweepi is still on the scene. Now there is really one game in town and that’s justunfollow. This app you can use either on your desktop or integrate it with your Hootsuite account:
So yeah, as you can see here, I need to go through my Twitter account and start following some peeps back. Also, look at who I’m following and see how I can make my Twitter more awesome. It actually super easy to unfollow people, so if you’re at a loss to what to do this afternoon, this New Year purge can prove to be quite cathartic.
