1. Introduction
 
If your information is publicly displayed anywhere on the internet, I can (and will) find it, and can (and will) find the perfect excuse to contact you, if you might buy what I’m selling.

To some people, this seems like a really annoying thing to do. But it’s not a bad practice in and of itself.

If the...

A recent study revealed that up to 40% of users on Twitter are inactive. ManageFlitter's inactive filter allows you to detect and unfollow inactive Twitter accounts that you are following.

Unfollowing inactive accounts on Twitter is important for the following reasons:

1. Inactive accounts do not engage in conversations on Twitter.

2. Inactive accounts do not retweet accounts on Twitter.

3. Following an inactive account increases your Twitter "following" count - which subsequently affects your Twitter ratio.

4.  In some cases, following inactive accounts...

ManageFlitter allows you to sort Twitter accounts by "influence".  This can be useful when deciding who to follow or unfollow.

This influence rating of an account is based on a number of factors including:

  • The number of followers the account has.

  • The number of times the account has been placed on other peoples' Twitter lists – (added to a Twitter list)

  • The number of tweets the account posted and how often the tweets have been re-tweeted or received a response.

  • The account's followers and their followers.

The influence filter is available on several...

One of my favourite things about Twitter is how it provides me with VIP access into the minds of some very smart people.

We all know about the Lady Gaga's, Justin Bieber's and Deepak Chopra's of the world and the social impact of their tweets.

However it is the lower profile geniuses whose tweets that I find are the most interesting.

Below are 5 lesser known Twitter accounts that provide me with insight and inspiration.

This Harvard man knows his graphs. He has been working in computer science since long before the Twitter egg was hatched. He has an online project collecting data and analysis of Apple's business strategy and predictions of...

No matter the size of your company or the industry you are in, Twitter offers an excellent way for companies of all sizes to engage with customers and stay fresh in their minds.
 
Whether your company does not yet have a Twitter account or your Twitter account is struggling to get followers, it is worth studying the social media habits of companies that are tweeting their way toward success.

Below are three examples of companies that are using Twitter smartly. 
 
1. Dell Uses Multiple Twitter Accounts for Better Organisation 
 
Dell is one brand that has figured out that it is not necessary to send all kinds of tweets from a single account. Instead, they have created a collection of separate accounts. This helps keep...

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.  ...
