How to Unfollow in Twitter

By Leigh Thompson

Arriving on the heels of Facebook & MySpace, Twitter is a social networking website that focuses on limited-character status updates. This networking website allows you to keep in touch with family, friends, colleagues and even your favorite celebrities. You can get up-to-date information on a variety of business and news outlets. When you follow someone on Twitter, her status updates show up on your feed page. When you follow too many people, your feeds get cluttered. When that happens, you may want to unfollow some people.

Step 1

Go to the Twitter website.

Step 2

Log into your account using your user name and password.

Step 3

Click the photo of the person you want to unfollow to open his Twitter profile page.

Step 4

Click the "Following" button. When you hover over this button, it changes to a red button that reads "Unfollow."

Step 5

Click the "Unfollow" button to stop following that person.
