Twitter Karma: How to get rid of dead Twitter weight

Collaboration – June 14, 2010


I’m sure that you’re as annoyed as I am by those ‘people’ (and I use the term loosely) who follow you, and the minute you follow them, the next day they unfollow you.

It’s a cheap (and most annoying) way to raise the number of Twitter followers a person has, and its only purpose is to be able to say, “Look how cool I am! I have 12,000 Twitter followers”.

A great way to get rid of these ‘experts’ (and I use the term with as much sarcasm as can be conveyed literally) is to use an application called Twitter Karma.

It will display on one webpage everyone who you follow and everyone who follows you. You can then simply click a convenient ‘unfollow’ button to get rid of those who pulled the ‘follow-unfollow’ trick on you.

It’s like spring cleaning for your Twitter account… Except you have to do it every month.

Enjoy! And remember, we’re all in this together!
