Twitter Unfollow Tool
Unfollowing on Twitter is essential for effective social media management. JARVEE’s Twitter Unfollow tool can automate the process of unfollowing inactive or irrelevant accounts, ensuring that your follower-to-following ratio remains balanced. This automation not only saves time but also helps maintain a credible and authoritative profile on Twitter, improving the visibility of your content and enhancing your overall social media strategy.
By leveraging the Unfollow tool, you can streamline your unfollowing efforts, allowing you to focus on building meaningful connections with your target audience and maximizing your brand’s online presence.
Using the Twitter Unfollow tool
Click on your account from the TOOLS view, then go straight to the Unfollow tool tab. This tool only displays the tool’s settings; it doesn’t have any other tabs.
- Users will be unfollowed after JARVEE has followed them for at least X days.
- The time it takes before the start of a new unfollow operation
- The number of users that will be unfollowed for each operation, as well as the interval between each unfollow.
- The tool’s execution hours
- The tool can be configured to pause its unfollow action for a random amount of time before starting a new operation.
- You can shuffle the days of the week when the Unfollow tool is active by choosing the Rotate Days option. For the upcoming week, the tool will select a different set of three days if you choose Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, for example. If you don’t want to unfollow users on the weekends, you can choose to leave them out of the rotation.
- The maximum number of users that will be unfollowed in a single day, JARVEE will choose a random number from the X-Y maximum unfollows you have configured and use that as the limit.
- The maximum number of users be unfollowed in a single hour, JARVEE will choose a random number from the X-Y maximum unfollows you have configured and use that as the limit.
- Enabling the automatic follow/unfollow option will allow you to run the follow and unfollow tools interchangeably by automatically stopping and starting whichever tool you choose, depending on the condition you set in the aforementioned option. This is very helpful if you want to maintain a balance between your followers and followings.
- Do not unfollow followers – Use this option to keep those who followed you back from being unfollowed.
- Delay Unfollow for followers – Use this option if you want to follow someone for X days before unfollowing them so that you don’t have to do it right away. Please take note that if you have selected Do not unfollow followers, this option will be disabled.
- User has a follow ratio (followers/followings) greater than – If the follow ratio is greater than your specified ratio, then that user will be unfollowed
- User has a follow ratio (followers/followings) smaller than – If the follow ratio is smaller than your specified ratio, then that user will be unfollowed
- User has number of followers/followings in a specific range – The users’ followers and followings should be within the specified range for them to be unfollowed.
- Use whitelist – You can add certain users’ usernames to the whitelist option to prevent JARVEE from unfollowing them.
- Do not unfollow active accounts – Set a duration for how long the accounts should be active in Twitter for them to be skipped from being unfollowed.
- Suspend when temporary blocked– Use this option to stop the tool for x – y minutes when Twitter gives you a temporary block. There’s an option to allow the suspension only on the second block and to logout/relogin on the second consecutive block.
- Suspend tool when getting no more results – Use this option if you want to suspend the Unfollow tool for x – y minutes when it returns with a ‘no more results error’ z times.
No Results tab?
Although the Unfollow tool doesn’t have a Results tab, the counter above lets you know how many users have been unfollowed so far.
You may also check the items under the Follow > Results tab to see if the Unfollowed Column shows a Yes which denotes they have been unfollowed by JARVEE.
Unfollowing users followed manually
You must import users first using the option ‘Import people you’ve followed manually’ if you want to unfollow people whom you manually followed or who you followed through software other than JARVEE. JARVEE only keeps track of those it follows; it is unable to see those you manually follow. As a result, you must import them. There is a scroll time indicated, similar to when extracting users, and this controls how long JARVEE will scroll on your followings page. In that case, the option to Set the date for the extracted user to X days ago has nothing to do with adding more users. This value is used to distinguish the extracted items.
From the sample below, you’ll notice that the manual extractions made have FOLLOWING_30 as a keyword and it’s a sign that they are set as if they were followed 30 days ago. Therefore, for these users who have the FOLLOWING_30 keyword to be unfollowed, you must set the Unfollow tool to unfollow users after a minimum of 29 – 29 days.
💡 You must extend the scroll time (which is set by default to 300 seconds or 5 minutes) to extract older followings. We really won’t suggest that you increase this any further because social media platforms interpret prolonged scrolling on a given page as an indication of automation and will either stop displaying results or end with a timeout error. Additionally, social media platforms have limits on the number of followers/followings that can be displayed, so you can’t extract all of the older followings at once.
Ensure first that all users who have the keyword FOLLOWING_30 are unfollowed first. After which you can perform another extraction to obtain the older followers if there are no longer any users who can be unfollowed using that keyword. If you want to concentrate on unfollowing older users first, it’s also best to stop using the Follow and Follow Back tools because doing so will make it more difficult for JARVEE to gather the older users on your followings list.
