Still Following Idle Twitter user?

Posted March 13th, 2009. Filed under Technology Web2.0

I am not a die-hard fan of twitter but it is sometimes great to stay updated regarding some news and other sensational topics. Many twitter users like me follow each and every follower. but many of them not even twitt daily / weekly / monthly / yearly. These guys are just Idle.

You want to stay updated but twitter had a limit for you :

  • 1,000 updates per day
  • 1,000 direct messages per day
  • 100 API requests per hour
  • Follow limit (not disclosed, some say 500/2000 etc )

You touched the first three limit ??

just wait for a day / hour.

For follow limit you have only single way to not to follow few profiles !! how ?? I just found Twitoria. It is nice to use. Easy UI. Basically Twittoria founds the friend who had not twitted over a period !!


Twitoria is based on Twitter API so only 100 idle friends are shown. Also Private profiles are not seen with Twitoria. Although twitoria had some limitation but it is a nice tool for Twitter users.

    Thanks. I will use this.

  12. Sanjeev says:

    Wow, nice information and tool. I will go for this.

  13. I love twitter but I don’t like the idea of following everyone who is following u. It’s better to follow only those people whom you adore or whose tweet sounds meaning ful.

    But the race of getting more twitter follower, I’m sure I might not follow this principles of mine for long.
