We’ve all probably done it, followed every single Twitter who has followed you, but this can sometimes seriously weaken your Twitter klout and viewing Tweets by those that you really are interested in.
Yesterday I wrote about “how to remove Twitter with no profile picture”, today I’m going to show you how you can vet your Twitter followers, weeding out the ones that you may not want to follow automatically, harsh as it sounds, not everyone is worth following.
So how can you Vet your Twitter Followers?
The way I found of doing this is by using the website SocialOomph, simply register and add your Twitter information, then once you have set up your account, you can now set up options to follow those that follow you, but, there is an option to Vet Followers and this is the option to use, as you can see from the image below.
Now you have to set up your settings for vetting Twitter followers, this will keep followers in a queue for three days giving you time to vet them, if you leave it then after three days the options you have made are performed.
It’s a technique that is for some and not for others, but if want a little control over your Twitter automation then this is certainly an option that you can take, there probably are other ways of doing this across the net, but this is just one that I have used in the past and found it very useful.
Twitter has recently announce that it has now put a stop to auto follow back on Twitter apps, this includes SocialOomph. Due to this, you must now manually vet those followers that may have been set to “approve” when using the app.
This will not make any difference to the rest of the app, but you now have to select if you wish to follow or not.
