I joined Twitter way back in 2008. Back when I first joined, I would follow anyone who would follow me along with other people I shared a common interest with since the community was fairly small in comparison to what it is today.
Fast forward to today and I was following roughly 19,000 people. In order to see the things/people that I wanted to see, I would have to use Twitter lists. If I didn’t do this, my main feed was entirely too busy. I finally got tired of this and started to search for a way to unfollow everyone at once and then I would go back and follow allow of the people that I was following on my main list. Essentially starting from scratch.
By the way, I wanted to do this for free.
There are quite of few services out there that can unfollow everyone you are following, but there is a cost to do so. After doing some research, I found out there was a pretty easy way to do this using the Chrome browser. I believe this also will work with Firefox, but I didn’t test it.
How To Unfollow Everyone On Twitter
Here is how you do it. In order of this to work, you will need to make sure that you are logged in to Twitter. After you logged in, go to http://twitter.com/following.
Then hit CTRL+SHIFT+J. This will pop up a console window that looks like this:
You will then copy and past the following code into the console and then press enter:
This will start the process of unfollowing everyone. Depending on how many people you are following, it could take a while. It took me about 2.5 hours to unfollow 19,000 people. I hope this helps.
