    What does it mean when someone on Twitter follows you & then later unfollows you for no reason?

    Have you ever experienced being followed by someone on Twitter and then, after you follow this person back, you later find out that he / she has unfollowed you for seemingly no reason at all? What does this mean? And what did you do about it?

    It means nothing other than they have decided to no longer follow you, nowt to worry about, such is flighty human nature, it was only an electronic signal anyway.

      Okay. It's just this is the 1st time this happened for me & I got confused, still being pretty new to Twitter. I mean, why did they follow me in the first place if they're just going to unfollow? I don't even know why they did that.

      Well, lately I wanted to re-build my online presence across various platforms so I deleted and un-friended some people to start again...even some friends.
      I want to separate personal from my professional.

    It has no meaning other than they have chosen to stop following you for one reason or another.

      Okay. I just thought it was really strange. I mean, why did they decide to follow me in the first place then? It seemed like less than a day when I followed back and then, the next time I log on to Twitter, I find that I've been unfollowed.

      Don't worry my friend, it is common place.

    May be they are not very interested in what you are tweeting? Why would you want to do anything about somebody unfollow you?

    On the other side there are marketing software which follows a hundred of accounts at a time and unfollow them after a while. This is to get those users who follow back somebody.

      If they weren't interested, then why follow me in the first place? They followed first, then I followed back. The next time I logged on to Twitter, I find that I've been unfollowed. Maybe it's because of that software you mentioned?

    Hello:

    Do not stress over it. It may mean nothing or they are trying to reinvent their profile.

      Okay thanks. It's just that this is the 1st time this happened to me since I'm still pretty new to Twitter so I didn't know what it meant. What do you mean by "they are trying to reinvent their profile"?
