Can you remove a follower on Twitter? This post on MiniTool MovieMaker will give you three methods of how to remove followers on Twitter.

Twitter is a platform where people can exchange different information, ideas, and opinions with others. Sometimes your opinions and ideas may make them annoyed, then they even begin to follow you and disturb you.

If you want to remove these followers you don’t like, we offer you three methods to help you remove followers on Twitter.

How to Remove Followers on Twitter Without Blocking Them

Can you remove a follower without blocking them? Twitter’s Remove this follower feature makes it easy to get rid of someone from your follower list without blocking them. It’s a soft option. Twitter will not notify them while you have removed them in this way, but they may still be able to see your tweets and message you.

Method 1. From Your Follower list

The first method is to remove them from your follower list.

Step 1. Go to the Twitter site in a web browser and log in to your account.

Step 2. Click Profile on the left sidebar of Twitter.

Step 3. You will see how many followers you have on this page.  Click Followers beneath your profile information to see your followers list.

Step 4. Find the follower you’d like to remove, then click on the three-dots icon to the right of the Follow button.

Step 5. Tap Remove this follower on the pop-up window. Next, click on Remove to confirm you want to remove this account.

Method 2. From Their Profile Pages

The second method is removing them from their profile pages. Just several steps too.

Step 1. Go to the Twitter site in a web browser and log in to your account.

Step 2. Visit the profile page of the account you want to remove from following you. You can tap their profile icon in the feed, or search for their names by using the search tool.

Step 3. Click on the three dots at the top of the profile page.

Step 4. Select Remove this follower, and then tap Remove to confirm it.

Note: This feature is available on the web only, so you can’t remove followers on the Twitter app. To remove them on your mobile, log in to your Twitter account via the website on your mobile phone.

The two methods are soft options, so they can follow you again in the future if your account is not private.

Step 1. Open the Twitter app on your phone or visit the Twitter site on a computer, and log in to your account.

Step 2. Go to the profile page you’d want to remove.
