I recently got turned onto a new FREE Twitter service called Tweepi. Tweepi helps you clean up your Twitter account and figure out all sorts of great things. Let’s talk about it!
This feature shows you who you follow that is NOT following you back. You can aggregate the info alphabetically, based on location, number of followers, or the last time they tweeted. I recommend listing them by the last time they tweeted (ascending). You will be amazed how many people you follow who haven’t tweeted in YEARS! My rule of thumb: If they haven’t tweeted in 15+ days, flush ’em.
If you are actively following people hoping for follow backs, you may reach a follow limit. Tweepi flush is great for helping you figure out who to stop following…so you can find better people to follow who will reciprocate!
My favorite part of the flush section is seeing who is not following my clients and making a wish list. My wishlist includes people my client has either directly asked me to interact with, or fits within their target demographics. Users with large followings who don’t yet follow back might just need a personal tweet or two before the follow back comes. Create relationships with these people and watch your retweet and mention numbers soar!
It doesn’t make sense to follow back everyone who follows you – your feed would be such a random mess! But every so often you might miss following back someone in your industry and that’s where this section becomes relevant! Tweepi Reciprocate shows you everyone who follows you that you don’t follow back, and makes it easy for you to follow them right there in the dashboard. Simple!
Tweepi Cleanup People I’m Following
This section is very similar to Tweepi Flush and honestly I never use it. The only difference is that it shows people who follow you and those who don’t (vs. flush which only shows people who don’t follow you). You can skip it.
Tweepi Cleanup People Following Me
This section is interesting because — who wants less followers? Believe it or not some clients really only want VALUABLE FOLLOWERS. 100s and 100s of followers from Russia who don’t even use English characters aren’t going to be retweeting you, and they definitely won’t be referring you business. I love this section because it helps you get rid of the random followers who aren’t doing anything for you. **This section is only available with a paid membership.
So obviously we love Twitter – hope to see you there! @BelleStrategies
