Last night, I unveiled my little Twitter side project onto the Twittersphere. Twitter Follower is a free service designed to help you quickly build a Twitter list so you can avoid negative social proof. Unlike RSS, you can not hide your follow count and because of human nature, many people will not follow someone with no followers. Twitter Follower is a database of Twitter users who will follow you if you follow them. By following the users in the database, you can quickly and effectively build your list and avoid that dread zero in the follower count.
If you have a policy of following everyone who follows you, then feel free to add your account to the list. The bigger the list, the more useful it becomes. If you don’t follow people back, then please don’t add yourself because you’ll be removed and banned once enough members report you. However, feel free to use the list to quickly get some new followers.
Mass Unfollow Everyone Who’s Not Following You
The other feature of Twitter Follow is the mass unfollow button. Push this button and Twitter Follower will unfollow everyone who’s not following you back. Other services charge for this feature but it’s free with Twitter Follower. Make sure you really want to unfollow those people before you push that button because once you push it, there’s no turning back!
