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. Using Chrome, login to your Twitter account and go to your follower’s page (https://twitter.com/following)
  2. Make sure you are using the Classic version of Twitter’s website.
  3. Open developer tools in your Chrome browser CMD+Option+C (Mac) or Control+Shift+C (Windows, Linux, Chrome OS)
  4. Go to the Console tab
  5. 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
    at :1:20

      1. Hi Tim,

        I previously used this function. But it seems to be no longer working in the last month and am getting the same error as LCS. Not sure whether Twitter has changed something to stop it working?

  2. Same for me.

    “Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property ‘trigger’ of null
    at ”

    Tried on my following page.

  3. After I put the code in you have above and I press enter, here is what I get – e.fn.init(21) [button., button., button., button., button., button., button., button., button., button., button., button., button., button., button., button., button., button., button., button., button., prevObject: e.fn.init(1)]

    Then it doesn’t unfollow at all.
