twitter shatterTwitter recently told me I was following too many people. I was annoyed at first but then realized they were right. Even with lists, following more than 2,000 people gets unmanageable. But how was I now going to pare down that number?

Enter Crowdfire (formerly Just Unfollow) and ManageFlitter. These apps make it easy to see who never even Tweets (why bother?), who has unfollowed you, and who is really still just an egg. I easily eliminated 100 people yesterday and I plan to go through this quick process every day until I’m following only relevant, updated content on Twitter.

I’ll also be checking out Tweebro and I’ll see how that compares.
