Remove Yourself from Twitter List Tutorial!

Dear Community,

Have you ever wondered what it means if someone within Twitter adds you to a list? No? Well me in the beginning neither. I just joined Twitter and after 5 days it seemed I am that famous to be added to lists.

So I started wondering why these "strangers" are doing this. Well after some research here is why:

How Smart Marketeers are trying to Spam You to Heaven!

So you are on a list, now you ask yourself what next? Marketeers can create so called lists and add up to 5000 accounts per list. Anyone can create up to 1000 lists per Twitter account. This way they can study your behavior what you post, what you like and what you comment and according to this information use Twitter accounts to get in contact with you. Mostly these are Twitter bots, (a robot, not a human person interacting with you) which will like your posts and follow you in the hope you follow them back. Then they will start to spam your channel with advertisements. Most of those bots will even un-follow you after some time, most of us do not notice.

How to remove yourself from a Twitter List in 5 easy Steps!

Normally you would say go to that list and remove yourself right? Strange I couldn't see myself. But don't panic, there is a very easy way to do this and you can do it within a couple of minutes.

Are you ready? Then let's go to the next page and follow my easy instructions.

I joined Twitter a few days ago and this tutorial is extremely helpful! I had no idea all of this was going on. You did mention to me about the bots and how to spot them.

I don't have many following me yet, but at least I can keep track from now on. I will be checking out the lists and navigate according to your tutorial, taking notes until I know how to do this.

There is so much information here, I'll have to go through it again. Thanks for the many tips and for sharing your findings!

I'm very new to social media as a platform to promote my website. I have no idea that there are so many bots at work out there. Maybe I should apply for a job as an internet bot :P but they probably can't afford me hehe...

Thanks for sharing this great twitter strategy, let's look forward to more human interactions and less bot contactzzz.
