I can’t possibly want to follow almost 4,000 people on Twitter. If I followed fewer people, my timeline would be less chaotic and anxiety-inducing. But I have a hard time unfollowing! That’s why I test so many different tools for just this function.
And right now, the Marie Kondo-themed tool Tokimeki Unfollow is helping me do some deep cleaning, one unfollow at a time.
So everyone was joking about Konmari-ing their Twitter, but I went ahead and made a tool for that:
Say hello to ✨ Tokimeki Unfollow ✨!

You tell Tokimeki whether these tweets spark joy. If they do, you keep following that account. If they don’t, you unfollow.
Like physical KonMari, this process could take a long time. You can’t mass-unfollow with one click. But the deliberate pace will help you make each choice wisely, and avoid the vertigo of judging hundreds of accounts at once. The tool stores your progress, so you can conduct this process in installments. Close it and come back later, resuming on any device that’s logged into your Twitter account.
Tokimeki Unfollow is another free tool from the increasingly world-dominating coding community at Glitch. If you’re a web developer or you’re learning to code, Glitch is the trendy place to build and release your web-based projects right now.
Other popular projects hosted on Glitch include “Which domain is more expensive?”, a game where you try to guess the domain names for which squatters are asking the most money. I scored 9/10! OK, back to higher priorities—like trimming my Twitter feed.
