How to Remove Followers on Twitter

It’s pleasant to have supporters. However, there are occasions when it’s crucial to have the correct supporters.

You have the ability to delete followers from your account if you want to organize your Twitter followers or prevent some persons from seeing your Tweets without blocking them.

Since you had to block and unblock a follower in order to delete them, this was referred to as “soft” blocking before Twitter offered a direct ability to do so.

Here’s how to change privacy settings so you can manually accept new followers, whether you’re using a desktop or a phone.
