I have shared quite a few Twitter tools on this site, I have spoken quite a bit about Tweepi, now Tweepi was great for a while but I thought I would look at ManageFlitter because I wanted to quickly unfollow non English speaking accounts, I knew I had used a program before that had this facility but could not remember which, anyway I saw that manageflitter had it so I thought I would give it a go. Now what i found was that Tweepi has a lot of sort features, but Manageflitter has some simple “presets” and the added ability to unfollow 80 or so people at a time rather than 20-40 on Tweepi.
The other benefit of Manageflitter is the sort facility which lets you very quickly sort for example the time you followed a user, this is very useful say if you are looking at “all people I am following that are not following me back”. You want to give people a few days to follow you back so you do not want to follow someone then unfollow them if they do not follow you back in a few minutes.
In my opinion the only true way to build a twitter following from scratch is through reciprocation among engaging with people, competitions etc.. anyway Manageflitter tells you exactly what number follower they were, so you look at how many people you are following and say, well… I have this many followers and I had this many the other day so that means i must have followed this person then..
A breakdown of the features of Manageflitter:

My favourite features of ManageFlitter:
Built into the suite is Powerpost which lets you schedule tweets and it will even tell you when the best times to tweet them are, when people in a certain area are mostly online, when your top 100 followers are online and more! I have to say this is one of my favourite tools on the site.
Tweet Search – Pro
The Tweet search tool is an incredible way of getting laser targeted followers. You can search by keyword, i.e. what people have tweeted and where you want to find people i.e. UK and even target as specific as a town or city.
ManageFlitter is an indispensable tool, although you will not be able to follow without the pro version I would go as far as to say that the unfollow facilities on ManageFlitter are some of the best I have seen. If I were to summarise I would say it lets you play it basic, it lets you play it mid-way and it lets you play it full-throttle! However you want to use it Manageflitter lets you easily switch between simple follow/unfollow to powerful filtering.
My only guidance for ManageFlitter and similar tools is be mindful of “churning” or “aggressive churning”.
Remember ManageFlitter starts at free and the Pro version at $12 per month. Go check it out: Manage Flitter.
It is fair to say that ManageFlitter have some plans in the pipeline and their offering is only going to get better and better.
