It isn’t very surprising if you end finding yourself following hundreds of people on Twitter and a crowded feed you just can’t keep up with. If anytime you are tired of old faces and want to wipe that list and start from scratch, there’s an easy method for Chrome users. All it requires is a tiny script and the click of a button.

The method comes courtesy of Ryan Block who shared it a few years ago on Twitter, and surprisingly it still works.

Unfollow Twitter Following List

Follow the below instructions if you aren’t familiar with such script, so you can wipe out your following list easily.

Open up Twitter and go to your following page, and scroll down to the very bottom of the list. Then hit Ctrl + Shift + J to pull up the Javascript console, in empty space there, paste the following code and press enter:

$('.js-follow-btn').each(function(){ $(this).trigger('click'); });

Once the script has run, you should see something that looks like this:

After executing the code, if you open up your following list in a new window, you will see the numbers gradually decreasing. Keep refreshing until it hits zero. If you want to go through the list and selectively follow back certain people, you can do this on the page where you ran the script. Once you close that tab, however, that list is lost to you forever.

Use Twitter on web in Night Mode

Other than the code, Twitter itself gives its users to mute annoying tweeps without even un-following them. By doing muting them, you can keep your timeline less crowded, but if you want to follow all the new faces, then you shall try the above method.
