How to Remove Followers on Twitter

Removing followers on Twitter is a straightforward process that can be done through Twitter's website. Here are two methods you can use to remove followers:

Method 1: Via the Followers List

  1. Go to your followers list.
  2. Identify the account you want to remove.
  3. Click or tap on the "more" icon (situated next to the "Follow" button).
  4. Choose "Remove this follower".
  5. Confirm the removal by tapping or clicking "Remove".

Method 2: From the Profile Page

  1. Navigate to the profile page of the account you wish to remove.
  2. Click or tap on the "more" icon.
  3. Select "Remove this follower".
  4. Finalize by tapping or clicking "Remove".

Things to Remember

  • Removing a follower does not stop them from following you again in the future.
  • The user will not be notified of the removal, although they might realize it upon not seeing your tweets in their feed.
  • Ensure that removing the follower is your final decision, as the only way to restore them is if they decide to follow you again.

Blocking as an Option

Blocking might be a better solution compared to removing a follower, as it prevents them from viewing your profile entirely. However, removal remains a viable, less permanent option.

Mobile Users

To remove followers on mobile, utilize a web browser since the application does not support this feature yet.

The Soft Blocking Alternative

Before the removal feature was introduced, users resorted to 'soft' blocking - blocking and then unblocking a follower to remove them. This method still exists but is no longer necessary.

Going Private

If you want, yo can make your account private afterwards to have control over who follows you in the future.

Reasons to Remove Followers

You might choose to remove followers for various reasons, including cleaning up your online reputation or simply preventing certain users from viewing your tweets. Remember, even if your account is public and not protected, removed followers can still view your tweets, albeit not in their normal feed. If you do any kind of twitter promotion then you are going to gather all kinds of followers - it comes with the territory. Removal is a good way to keep your visible follower list clean.
