We’ve made some major changes to TweetSeeker today to simplify making Twitter accounts that are most important to you more prominent in your timeline. Likewise, we’ve made it easier to bury the Tweets of accounts you follow but would prefer to ignore or make less of a priority reading.
We call it Blinging up your timeline, or just Bling. Decorate your favorite Tweeters’ Tweets with colors or patterned backgrounds. Or make certain accounts’ Tweets always show up at the top or bottom of your Timeline on TweetSeeker.
We removed the SocialTag column to make room for the new feature because frankly almost no one was using SocialTag. That’s OK. We’re reacting to the needs and preferences of our users.
Try our new Bling feature once and you’ll be using it everyday.
Finding out who unfollowed you just became easier with our new Unfollow tracker.
TweetSeeker automatically keeps track of who unfollowed you since your last visit to the site.
Click on the menu item for the unfollower tracker and we’ll list all your recent unfollowers in pages of 50 accounts.
You have to have previously visited TweetSeeker in June 2012 for the tracking to have started taking effect. If this is your first time visiting, we’ll start tracking your unfollowers starting right now – just go to the TweetSeeker home page and log in.
Our unfollow tool allows you to filter unfollowers by your following status with them. Maybe you only want to see people that you still follow who unfollowed you. Filter by “You Follow”.
Once inside the tool, you will see that we have added a “remove” button to “forget” this unfollower so that they no longer show up in the tracker. This helps you keep track of which unfollowers you have already seen.
One more reason to love TweetSeeker and use it to curate your Twitter follower lists.
We’ve added a nifty little feature that allows you to keep track of how long you’ve been following a particular Twitter account. Starting today, we track the day that you followed them. Next time their Tweets show up on TweetSeeker, you’ll see the days following under the Unfollow button.
We can’t go back and time and get this information for all the accounts that you followed in the past and Twitter does not make it available to developers (if they record it at all). It will only be available for new follows performed on TweetSeeker. We can’t track them if you follow them on any other product (including Twitter itself). The follow has to originate on TweetSeeker.
Some people will find it useful to refer to this new information if they unfollow people after a certain number of days with no follow-back.
Anyway, enjoy and let us know how you like it.
