How to Mass Unfollow on Twitter

Have you ever wanted to remove some of your followers on twitter? Twitter does not provide a native way to do this, but you can automate it in your browsers developer console.

Steps:

  1. Login to your Twitter account and go to your follower’s page (https://twitter.com/following)
  2. Open developer tools in your Chrome browser CMD+Option+C (Mac) or Control+Shift+C (Windows, Linux, Chrome OS)
  3. Go to the Console tab
  4. Paste in the code below and press enter
$('.unfollow-text').trigger('click')

This command will find all the unfollow buttons on the page and click them. So however many followers you have displayed will be immediately unfollowed.

 

I thought this was a neat trick to clean up your followers. Hope you find it useful.

  1. Tried it, but it doesn’t seem to work. Developer tools returns an error:

    VM93:1 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property ‘trigger’ of null
