    A while ago i bought some fake followers for the first time.

    After reading up on them... i saw alot of ppl saying it's common that they would unfollow so Thinking that 1/2 of them would naturally drop off/unfollow. I decided to buy 15,000 followers. I really only wanted about 5k

    Now 6 months later, the fake twitter followers are still about 15,000. :( i don't remember who i bought them from. I do not want to create a new twitter because it's already an established account with 3k real (not bought) followers

    does anyone know how i can delete some of the fake bought followers without contacting the seller? i don't remember who the seller is because i bought them a long time ago. :(

    why do you want to get rid of followers? They probably never read the tweets of who they follow so that is why they will not unfollow!

    i used manageflitter.com/unfollow to unfollow the fake follows. but you can only unfollow 1200 a day unless you sign up for the pro version then its unlimited.

    There is a site named friend or follow where you can sort through them and delete who you want.

    I like this, had a laugh:

    don't know, if it was the surprise, or what

    guess you didn't pay the original dude to take some off if you're unhappy with his service?

    can't you market this "undesirable" state of affairs instead, and offer some advertisers paid ads?

    your selling line is simple, "hey look, I have 18,000 followers! even if you have a CTR of 10% and conversion rate of 10%, you'll still sell 180 copies of your product! let's say you make a profit of $20 per copy, that's a cool $3600! so, how about paying me just a third of that as commission?"

    There is a site called Twepi or something like that. You can mass unfollow on there.

    That's what I was going to say :)

    Manage Flitter is pretty accurate when it comes to detecting and unfollowing fake followers. As caliboarder says it will only unfollow around 1200 per day, so it would take you around 2 weeks to get the job done.

    Do these fake followers do you harm to your account? Why do you want to get rid of them?
