Find and delete Twitter followers

By default, people who interact with a broadcaster's Twitter account are automatically imported into your nation. This can help you target Twitter outreach and deepen engagement. If you're not ready to use the functionality, you can delete Twitter profiles from your people database and change your broadcaster's Twitter settings.

Delete Twitter profiles from your people database

1. Create a filter of Twitter profiles.

If you've just started to use your nation and you know for certain that no one has logged into your nation with their Twitter account or could otherwise have a Twitter account connected to their profile, you can simply target people who have Twitter info. Click Add criteria, then begin typing "Twitter" into the search bar and select Has Twitter info as the criteria.

Twitter info as filter criteria

Then click the Filterbutton and you'll see all of the profiles connected with a Twitter account.

If you are already engaging some of your Twitter followers through other modes of communication - perhaps email or postal mail, then you'll want to target Twitter followers who don't have email addresses and mailable addresses. That filter looks like this:

Once you've added the criteria to the filter, click the Filter  button to find the people matching the criteria.

2. Add all of these people to a list.

3. Go to the list and delete the people on the list from your nation.
