    Is there any free program which will tell me who i unfollow?
    When i got to 5k follows, i start unfollow those who didn't follow me back and i don't know if i follow them again and they can report me for spam...
    I am new in all of this :)

    This seems like a non-issue to me. This type of follow-churn is largely only a problem for accounts who don't respect and appreciate staying well under the radar from an "actions" stand-point. So if you follow someone, and then un-follow, and then re-follow within a small period of time it will easily trigger automatically based on internal Twitter algorithms.

    However, I think it's somewhat rare that an individual themselves actually turns someone in for following and un-following, and then re-following. Think about that. That person would have be solving the exact quandary you came here to figure out. They would need to know who is following, unfollowing, and the re-following them in short periods of time. No REAL person does that.

    More often the internal triggers get tripped. So avoid the issue. Spread out your account followings across multiple accounts. You want to follow 5000 people quickly? Make enough accounts to do that without tripping internal Twitter triggers. Then use a more controlled and delayed approach. Trust me ... Twitter isn't a race, and those going super fast are not even close to winning it if it was. Controlled and managed account growth is the only viable option to avoid ban hammer.

    I agree to disagree. :)

    It can be an issue in itself, people can't just report you, but they can also block you and when a significant amount of people do that (significant compared to the size of your account), that throws up red flags. I can clearly remember people complaining about this, some of them go that far, that they tweet about it. lol
    People can leave their Twitter notifications on, so they'll know when you follow them, although they don't get notifications of the unfollows, but if they get a second notification with the same user name of the follow, they'll know what's up. Plus there are quite a few services to notify you about the accounts which unfollowed you, so it doesn't even take any effort to figure this out.

    Achieving what OP wants without a bot can be tricky, i personally don't know that Chrome addon posted above, but i guess it should work.

    for unfollow scroll down your followers right click inspect element -console -paste this code


    $('.ProfileCard-content').each(function(){var status = $(this).find('.FollowStatus').text();var unfollowButton = $(this).find('.user-actions-follow-button');if(status != 'follows you'){unfollowButton.click();}});

    Thanks for this feedback. I appreciate it.

    Psyched to hear that the chrome plugin worked exactly for OPs needs!
