Bulk “Unfollow” option in Twitter…

I just went hunting for a tool to quickly unfollow the 1200-odd accounts on Twitter that I never followed in the first place (most weren’t even in English). Turns out, it’s pretty easy…

Open the “Following” page on Twitter (https://twitter.com/following) and scroll down until all the accounts you are following are loaded in the browser. If you are following many accounts then you can place a heavy object on the Page Down button to scroll down automatically 🙂

Now open developer console (F12 in most Browsers) and paste the script below on the console run text field, then hit enter.

$(‘.button-text.unfollow-text’).trigger(‘click’);

It will look like your page has frozen, but it’s all good – just leave it running and it will eventually come back, with all of the accounts visible on the page now “Unfollowed”. Great jQuery script hack! Now I just need to figure out who is subscribing me to these random people…
