Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Questions and Answers
Are we storing Username & Passwords?
The simple answer is No. We authenticate to Twitter via OAuth. You may ask, "What is OAuth then?" Quoted from Twitter's website, "OAuth is an authentication protocol that allows users to approve application to act on their behalf without sharing their password. More information can be found at oauth.net or in the excellent Beginner's Guide to OAuth from Hueniverse." The link to this twitter article is found here.

Do you automatically Tweet via our account or follow other people behind the scenes?
On Settings, if you check 'Tweet my daily stats' we send your daily stats to your twitter account. And you should follow unfollowerstats.com twitter account.

Why would I want to unfollow people?
Some websites like twiends have made a system that gives you credits when you follow a user. Some people like to abuse the system by following as many people as they can to get high amounts of credits. Then they have a bad ratio of Followers to Unfollowers so they use this service to unfollow all of the people they previously followed (they only followed to get points) on twiends. You can also use this service for just unfollowing people that spam your twitter feed with useless text. However we do not promote aggressive follow churning.

What is Aggressive Follow Churn?
We do not support aggressive follow churn! However, you can read more about it here.

Is it against Twitter's Rules?
Twitter says, "We do not limit the number of followers you can have. However, we do monitor how aggressively users follow other users. We try to make sure that none of our limits restrain reasonable usage, and will not affect most Twitter users." In addition Twitter states that "Aggressive follow churn is when an account repeatedly follows and un-follows large numbers of users. This may be done to get lots of people to notice them, to circumvent a Twitter limit, or to change their follower-to-following ratio." Just remember that you accept our TOS by using our site.

Why i cant see my unfollowers at first login on app?
System is starting to work just after you sign up our app. After that time, we start collecting your followers and unfollowers so you cant see your unfollowers at first time. You should visit some later.
