As you may know we were forced to make some changes to our bulk follow/unfollow service by Twitter.

As part of the changes we now offer a Remote Account Management (RAM) feature where an Account Manager on our end manually processes your follows, unfollows, and blocks as required.

Remote Account Management

We have started activating RAM for users that have pre-registered for this service.  If you are interested in trying out this feature you can register your interest by logging into ManageFlitter and filling out the request here.

Below is a video of overview of RAM....

Sometimes it is useful and interesting to see which of your previous Twitter followers unfollow you and when they did so.

We have always had an "Account History" tracking function that provided this information.  Unfortunately it has not always been as accurate as we would have liked.

We have re-released the "Account History" tracking function.  It is now more accurate.  This is now live in all accounts.  

To access this feature select "Analytics" -> "Account History".

Account History

Please note:

  • Account History will only display accounts that have unfollowed you since 25 September 2013.  Moving forward Account History will keep track of all accounts that unfollow you and what day they unfollow you.  ...

Twitter recently updated their Twitter API Frequently Asked Questions to include an entry explaining their decision to disallow bulk following and bulk unfollowing.

From:
https://dev.twitter.com/docs/faq#21443

"Why are automated and bulk following/unfollowing services not allowed?
 
First, it’s worth clarifying that this policy change isn’t meant to prevent developers from building tools that surface potential accounts to follow or unfollow. However, the follow/unfollow action must happen one account at a time, not in bulk.
 
After hearing feedback from users who rely on third-party tools for follow management, we want to provide more context behind this policy change. Per theTwitter Rules, following or unfollowing large amounts of users in a short time period is considered to be a spam activity. Bulk and automated...

As you may be aware we have had to change the way our batch follow/unfollow functionality worked.

Most of our new functionality is now live for our users.

This new functionality includes a "Remote Account Management" feature where you will be able to create a set of criteria, or a pre-selected list of accounts you wish to follow or unfollow - and an account manager at ManageFlitter will manually review and action individually as per your requirements...

We have had many requests to add the option to exclude “all” people that you have previously followed on Twitter. "I don't want to refollow people who I've ever followed before, not only people I'm currently following" has been a common customer request.  

We are happy to announce this feature is now live!

Exclude all people that you have previously followed.

Before this new update you were only allowed to exclude accounts that you have followed in the last 1-30 days.

Please note:

1. If you are an existing ManageFlitter user your follower account history will start from 30 days ago and continue to...

Like any communication platform, Twitter faces problems with spam. 

For Twitter these issues lie in 3 main areas:
  • Large volumes of spam Tweets (particularly @mentions)
  • Fake accounts with millions of followers
  • Direct Message (DM) spam from fake accounts
  • Twitter have done a reasonable job at squashing spam Tweets.

    While it’s really hard to detect spam in 140 characters, all links included in Tweets are passed through Twitter’s t.co shortener. This allows them to retroactively mark links as phishing or spam which has really helped to limit the ability of spammers to get...

    Overview of Upcoming ManageFlitter Changes:

    Unfortunately ManageFlitter will no longer be able to provide the ability to select multiple accounts to follow or unfollow as indicated in the screenshot below.

    Sometime between 5 September 2013 and 9 September 2013 we will be removing the ability to select multiple accounts to follow and unfollow.
