Twitter has 302 million monthly active users [July 2015] but how many inactive? Yes, some people created their account and they realised it’s not their cup of tea and they stopped using it. How many of those accounts we’re following? I have more than 2000 followers and I found out that I’m following 300 profiles that haven’t been active for more than 6 months. How did I do that? I downloaded an app called Crowdfire and it’s really helpful [you can use it on desktop as well].
After installing the app, log in with your Twitter account [paid version allows you to add multiple accounts] click on ‘Inactive following’ and you can choose users who didn’t post any tweet in 1, 3 or 6 month time. Basically 6 month time means 6+ so it can include users who were last active over a year ago. You might be surprised how many users will show up.
Another interesting features are:
- detecting my new followers and unfollowers on a daily basis
- creating ‘White’ list which contains people who I don’t wanna unfollow
- my ‘Fans’ which are people who I don’t follow back
Get the most out of it
If you want to schedule a tweet for a perfect time, you can also use Crowdfire for that. It analyzes the best time to tweet, based on your followers’ previous interaction with you. However you can also choose the time that you want, so for example post it at 4 a.m. and pretend you never sleep! :D
PS: Crowdfire does not post on your behalf if you don’t want it. Enjoy! And don’t forget to follow me – I’m active :D
