How to Dismiss a Follower on Twitter Without Blocking Them
Not too long ago, Twitter finally made it possible for its users to eliminate all the followers they want without blocking them. To do this, click on the Profile option to the left. Right below the date you joined, you’ll see how many followers you have; click on that. You’ll see the list of followers you have.
To the right of each follower, you’ll see three dots you’ll need to click on. The third option from the list will be the Remove, this follower. Don’t worry about the person getting notified of the removal because they won’t get any notice.
What Happens When You Remove a Follower on Twitter
One thing you might be worried about when removing a follower on Twitter is if the other person will get a notice. You can relax knowing that Twitter does not let the removed follower know they are no longer following you.
The blocked person will no longer see your tweets on their feed, but if they see that they are no longer following you, they can click on the Follow button again. That’s why it’s a good idea to think if you want to remove the person as a follower or you want to block them altogether.
