    I needed to get rid of some dead weight on Twitter, so I loaded up Twitter Karma. Apparently twitter made them remove the bulk unfollow option a few weeks ago.

    What program(s) do you use to bulk unfollow?

    Check out Twitter Friend Adder from Livelybrowser. It does a good job and is updated frequently to keep up with changes.

    Just use refollow.com.

    Upload your list of friends, and then select which filter you like then hit the unfollow button.

    Just the ones that aren't following me. I unfollowed everyone once as an experiment and so many people have auto-unfollowing programs, that I lost about 65% of my followers. I'm back up to a little over 12K but have about 1000 dead weight that I'm trying to get rid of.

    Thanks for all of the suggestions.

    I use this script to unfollow who ever doesn't follow me back !

    Where it says "your username" put up your twitter username and where it says "your password" put your password. Lines 8 and 9 to be exact.

    Upload the script to your hosting and run it in a browser ....

    If you have more then 1000 users to unfollow it will take about 2-5 mins ...

    Be patient ..

    here's a lightweight bulk unfollow tool:
    Code:
    http://www.in-rev.com/twitter/index.htm
    i used to use this when i dealt with twitter (let's say a half year ago), and it worked flawlessly, unfollow hundreds even thousands at once, but plz be careful, i heard the rules of the game called twitter :) are changed and your twitter acc get banned in no time, so don't be greedy with this tool...

    I released a free twitter follow and unfollow tool

    Code:
    http://tweetattacks.com/free-twitter-friend-adder/
    It unfollow users from the web, based on my experience it is safer than other tools that are using API...

    BEWARE !. After you mass unfollow , Your account will be suspended when you start to mass follow other people. Many of my account was suspended after do that.

    For safety waiting for a day to mass follow the others.
