Below are solutions to common problems with following:
- You may have hit a following limit.
- We only allow you to follow a certain number of users per day and per account in order to limit spam. Click here to read more about follow limits.
- Log in to Twitter on the web and visit your following list.
- Hover over the Following button next to the user you don't want to follow anymore. It will turn red and say Unfollow. Click Unfollow and the user will be removed from your following list.
- If it doesn't turn red or click, refresh the page and try again, or click the user's name to visit their profile page and unfollow them there.
- If you received a message from Twitter alerting you to a new follower, but don't see that person later in your followers list, it's likely that user was removed for spam activity, unfollowed you, or deactivated their account.
- Log in and confirm that the user is in your following list.
- Confirm that a blue Following box shows when you visit their profile (get there by clicking their name or entering their username in your browser like this: http://twitter.com/username).
