My question regarding Twitter's follow limit was included in the Social Hour podcast, episode 156. Have you reached the follow limit? Do you have a solution to the problem?

Do you have tips on how to "fix" the problem with Twitter's Follow Limit Rule? I am following 4505 tweeps at the moment, but I "only" have 4098 followers, so I can't follow new tweeps right now. I have been testing different services for getting rid of inactive users, fake users, robots, etc. I recently tested Have you heard about other services? And why is Twitter sticking to this rule?

Heather: The main challenge is that it is pretty cumbersome and takes a long time to go through the list of inactive and fake followers and remove them one by one. I got a tip by Dan Swords that I will test this weekend. I probably have to spend several hours on this.

Hi Martin,

It's an interesting issue and unfollowing inactive users (and certainly fake users) or those who perhaps don't fit your network for other reasons seems one logical option. You say you've been looking for services to help you do this. What are the main challenges?
