You are an active twitter user. You follow other people’s twitter accounts when they follow yours. Soon, you discover that you are following many inactive and useless accounts. Here is a quick way to clean your twitter contact list — MyCleenr.


MyCleenz is a simple website that asks for your Twitter login information (but never save it!) then list down the people you are following sorting with last tweet done by them. There is a “delete” button allows you to stop following the particular person.

MyCleenz helped me to discover those people I have been following long long time ago but have never updated their tweets. I found a couple of users who did not update for more than 1 year already! Basically, they are “registered-and-gone” and are safe to stop following.

I only keep the users who has last tweet in the recent 3 months. Now my twitter contact list is clean!
