How to unfollow people on Twitter

Why would I want to unfollow someone?

  • Typically, people unfollow other accounts when they no longer wish to see that account's Tweets in their home timeline. You can still view them on an as-needed basis by visiting their profile, unless their Tweets are protected.
  • If you are unfollowing an account because their updates seem like spam, please read our guidelines on reporting spam on Twitter.
