Twitter is a social networking website wherein users can send thoughts and read messages called tweets (counterpart of Short Message Service for mobile phones). It basically revolves around the principle of followers – that’s when users subscribe to other users’ tweets. Being a tweeter user is not easy, you have to maintain or otherwise increase your level of influence or importance on Twitter because you can’t avoid being unfollowed so it is very important to update your status or links once in a while, you also need to keep track who subscribes or stops reading your tweets, you also need to avoid those who are sending junk e-mails and meet new users having the same interests.
Below are helpful tools for Twitter users to track twitter unfollowers and to monitor your influence much more. These tools also enable you to potentially determine why they chose to unfollow you so you can avoid the actions you previously made to do it again. These are freely available online so don’t hesitate to try it.
