If you’re a teenager who uses Twitter, there are few people like you. The majority of Twitter users are middle-aged with an interest in politics and news or are working people who use Twitter as a professional connection network. This is because soon after Twitter’s launch, the platform had a choice to introduce features that attract young users or focus on its current clientele. Twitter chose the latter, and we can safely say it’s more than a fair deal. Let us explain exactly why we’re of that opinion.
Firstly, while most youngsters didn’t like the political and anxiety-inducing part of the platform, there are several communities on Twitter made by and for teenagers. Moreover, since Twitter recommends to the user what they already seem to like, not everyone has to see politics unless they want to. All in all, Twitter still has a moderately strong youngster user base.
Secondly, by not adding teenage-friendly features and modifications, Twitter chose to go from the generic social media networking site to something unique and different. Users of all ages can choose to blend in with the platform’s ways instead of the platform bending to the users’ will.
Lastly, Twitter has also successfully established itself as a reliable news source and professional platform, which was its goal. Instead of just being another platform teenagers can mindlessly scroll their precious days away on, Twitter has more substance and meaning.
Hundreds of content creators are emerging today with new and innovative ways to add value to the users’ scrolling with informative and mind-boggling threads. These include tips and hacks about time management, fitness, mind models, mindset growth, business development, and full-feature utilization of websites, tools, and platforms. Doesn’t that sound so informative and exciting?
However, people often get overwhelmed when faced with so much information and opportunities. To deal with this, remember to follow only those select creators whose content perfectly aligns with your goals or fields of interest.
If you have a habit of following everyone, make a point to go through your following list every once in a while. This way, you can filter out any inactive Twitter accounts you might’ve followed. It might sound improbable, but many creators give up halfway through their journey and instead start posting on an entirely different topic. If you continue following them, your feed will be filled with more irrelevant content.
In this blog, we’ll talk about how to unfollow inactive Twitter accounts. To learn about it, keep reading until the end of this blog.
How to Unfollow Inactive Twitter Accounts
If you’ve been a Twitter user for some time, you might’ve accumulated many users in your following list. It’s quite understandable; after all, you’re on Twitter to consume top-quality content. However, it doesn’t look good when you’re following two thousand accounts, does it?
The worst part is you don’t even see all those accounts’ content. Most of it is too far down on your Timeline, or those accounts have now become inactive. Either way, they’re surplus accounts on your profile that you don’t need.
A simple way to unfollow inactive Twitter accounts on your smartphone is by selecting all the accounts from your following list.
