Here’s one of the famous Twitter stories that’s common in any Twitter user’s life:
There are times when someone is following you on Twitter and you are pretty sure that he or she has just a fake Twitter account. Managing Twitter followers can be quite a task especially when your see many dubious accounts, some random account with less than 3 tweets overall in their account with junk followers who seem unrelated.
Just look at their following vs. followers list and you’ll be able to easily understand their credibility in Twitter. They can be easily removed on Twitter in a manual process – I personally see this to be a better way of doing – unless of course you have 100s and 1000s of followers who have followed you using a bot, in which case you can use unfollow Twitter tools and apps like Twitblock.org or Tweepi.com to unfollow them or remove those inactive followers on Twitter accounts from your followers list. These accounts are mostly spam followers on Twitter who randomly follow accounts and then unfollow after a week or two. Let’s now see a simple way to remove or delete a follower on Twitter if you see that the account holder doesn’t contribute much or is having just an egghead or a fake Twitter account.
