  •  Hi, Angie. Nope, I searched using "twitter" which (3+ / 0-)

    missed bring up the name "TWEETers". I'll check it out. Maybe we can merge our ideas. Right now gotta run tho.

    And sorry, I can't follow you at the moment cuz I'm over twitter's 2K limit  :(

      I suggest you (although it is time consuming) go to your profile and then to those you are Following on Twitter.

      Scroll down until you see the message "Back to Top". That means you are at the oldest Tweeter whom you first followed (they are in chronological order from the bottom up).

      Now comes the time consuming part.

      Click once on the first Tweeter UserID/Name. It'll pop up.

      I look to see if:

      1) it's a news-oriented link
      2) it's a Kossack
      3) if they are following me back

      If none of those is true, then I look at the Tweets last posted by this user and decide if I want to continue following or not.

      Mostly this is useful to find accounts I am following which have been abandoned or gone dormant for more than six months. Even if they are 'following me', if they are no longer using the account, and I unfollow them, there is a better than even-odds that account will continue to 'follow'  me.

      I want to follow those who are active, to generate a bigger spread of info via Twitter. There is no point in following 'dead' accounts.

      I've been able to clear out hundreds of older accounts I no longer want to follow, which allows me to continue adding new Tweeters to my Following List.

      Hope this helps!
