If you’re not aware, you cannot get rid of a Twitter follower through an official method. The platform doesn’t offer such features. At the same time, you may restrict those users from accessing your account.


To do that, you need to block and then unblock those users. So, here are some ways on how to remove followers on Twitter.

How to Remove Followers on Twitter?

From The Mobile App

One of the advantages of having a personal Twitter account is that you can choose whatever you wish for. You can handpick your followers by accepting or rejecting their follower requests.

But how can you get someone from your following list to stop following you?

Step 1: To block someone on Twitter using Android or iOS, head on over to your Twitter app.

Step 2: If you’re logged out, enter your information to log in.

From the homepage, tap on the three lines stacked together in the top left corner.

Step 3: Tap on “Followers” from the top of the menu that is in front of you. Here you can see a list of your followers.

Step 4: Search for the follower you would like to remove. To get to their profile, tap on their username.

Step 5: Tap on “…” in the top right corner of their profile.

Step 6: You can then tap on “Block” from the menu. Then tap “Block” again on the popup.

Step 7: You now have two options. You can choose to leave that person blocked. That way, they won’t be able to follow you again or see your profile. Or you can go and unblock them.

Doing this will mean that they could potentially follow you again. At the same time, they will not know you blocked and unblocked them. But they will no longer be your follower. Furthermore, if you wish more Twitter users followed you, visit us on our website.
