Twitter CleanUp – Thinking About Dumping

Last updated on April 7, 2020

Update Apr 7, 2020: I did dump it, forgot about it and never missed it.

Almost five years later and seems to still be going strong. Good for them. It’s still expensive as hell but I’m not trying to juggle over a dozen accounts anymore either. I have about five accounts I post to on a regular business. So who knows, perhaps I’ll give it another try. Then again, it doesn’t seem as important as it used to. Like my daddy used to say, “We’ll see“.

I just spent 2 hours cleaning up 6 of my Twitter accounts; removing the inactive and non-followers.

Last year I purchased one year of Business that expires in a little over a week. I have over a dozen Twitter accounts so I really need at least the Business+ membership but I don’t want it bad enough to fork out even close to $479.88 for the next year. I’m certainly not paying $50.99/month for the monthly plan.

Even to keep the Business Plan (6 Twitter profiles) I’d need to pay $239.88 for another year by Jul 9th. That is still too high.

Truthfully would be worth the investment if I took advantage of the complete program with all of the features but I just log in every month or two for a quick clean-up. I haven’t been one to aggressively grow my accounts. I pretty much allow my accounts to grow organically by following back who look like real people that aren’t spammy, playing the follow to unfollow game, Tweet in English, and are actively using Twitter.

If anyone has a better Twitter Management solution let me know. I just want a program that will allow around a dozen accounts and check follows -vs- unfollowers and activity stats.

  1. I don’t know how you do it with all those Twitter accounts. I only have two and have a hard time. Good luck in finding a solution that works for you!

    • I’m really not that good at it Brenda. I try to load up Buffer once or twice a week but beyond clicking the favorite button a millions times I’m not nearly as engaged as I want to be.

  2. Hi Brian,
    This caught my attention because I was just hacked on Twitter. Twitter notified me that I was using too many automated tweets, when I don’t use automation at all.
    I was taking a quick break to clean up those people I don’t really know on Twitter and I seen this. I only have one account and not so active on it, but it sure feels great to know that someone else out there is doing a clean sweep too.
    Thanks so much,

    • Hi Donna, one account is probably the smarter way to go. I do try to keep my accounts clean but it’s a huge chore because those I don’t want to associate with have gotten very smart. There are even huge networks of fake accounts retweeting a single acct’s promotional tweets. It makes it look like someone that is following almost no one is getting hundreds of retweets & favorites when in reality it is all the work of a single person. Between that and those that unfollow as soon as they get a follow back drive me crazy.

    • I appreciate that Sharel but I’ve been waiting a week for an acknowledgment or response from CommunIt support. I requested my account be downgraded and my card not be charged but no response at all. To make things even worse, my credit card company sent me a notice that they rejected a CommunIt (Bluesnap Nicosia Cy) charge of $239.90 more than a week early. Not cool at all.
