Remove Followers on Twitter

Twitter is a web-based social networking application that allows you to post short updates in real-time for other people to keep track of. Unless you protect your Twitter posts, anybody who has a Twitter account can choose to 'Follow' you and be part of your social network. If you don't want someone to follow you on Twitter, you can make use of the 'Block' feature that prevents your updates from showing up in another person's profile page. Here's how to remove followers from your Twitter account.

This article will help you remove followers on Twitter.


  1. Log in to your Twitter account. Enter your email address or username, and password into the login screen. Sign in to access your account.

    Select "Followers" from the right hand sidebar. This area is the middle column directly under your profile image. Clicking it will take you to the list of people who are following you on Twitter.

  2. Track down the follower you want to block. Scroll through your followers list to find the person that you want to disable the follow feature for. You can scroll through multiple pages using the "Next" button at the bottom right hand corner of the page.

  3. Select "Block" next to the follower's name. You will be taken to another screen that will ask you to confirm whether or not you want to block that person.

  4. Confirm the block. Select, "OKAY, I STILL WANT TO BLOCK THIS PERSON" to remove him from your followers list.
