Last week I posted about the threatened demise of the best application for managing twitter follow lists, the excellent ManageTwitter. Well after a cease and desist order it has gone…sort of. A search for Manage Twitter will bring up a remarkably similar site called ManageFlitter, brought to you by the makers of ManageTwitter. Apparently one of the things that the masters of the microblog didn’t like was the infringement of their trade mark.
A few other things are different too. There is no longer a tab that allows you to bulk unfollow users whose accounts may be dormant or who don’t follow you back. This can still be done but you have to select individual check boxes or drag and select multiple icons. The application isn’t quite as versatile as it used to be but hopefully the changes will have satisfied the head honchos in San Francisco as this is the most useful tool around for managing your account without spending hours checking the activity of individual followers.
