Update: Following on from this announcement with changes to free and paid plans, we have outlined a roadmap to be implemented over the coming weeks.
Over 7 years ago at 2.36pm on the 18 February 2010 - in Sydney Australia - I first logged into a new exciting tool that the team had built - ManageFlitter (then called ManageTwitter!).
You can see a copy of my original Yammer message that I posted to the team:
ManageFlitter was developed as an internal side project to help our own team with their Twitter accounts (at the time we were a Digital Agency). ManageFlitter was released to the public in 2010 and quickly gained users. Read this post
As you may know we were forced to make some changes to our bulk follow/unfollow service by Twitter.
As part of the changes we now offer a Remote Account Management (RAM) feature where an Account Manager on our end manually processes your follows, unfollows, and blocks as required.
As you may be aware we have had to change the way our batch follow/unfollow functionality worked.
Most of our new functionality is now live for our users.
In the August 2013 edition of the ManageFlitter newsletter we ran a "#manageflitterwow" competition. (Remember - you can subscribe to the ManageFlitter newsletter by entering your email address in the newsletter section of the dashboard)
The competition was based around why you love ManageFlitter!
Thank you to everyone who participated! The two winning tweets are listed below:Read this post
Overview of Upcoming ManageFlitter Changes:
Twitter has made some changes to its "Automation Rules and Best Practices".
Unfortunately ManageFlitter will no longer be able to provide the ability to select multiple accounts to follow or unfollow as indicated in the screenshot below.
Sometime between 5 September 2013 and 9 September 2013 we will be removing the ability to select multiple accounts to follow and unfollow.
Please note that this is not our decision but rather we have been forced to make these changes by Twitter.
The ManageFlitter blog has moved to http://blog.manageflitter.com
Along with the updated URL, we've refreshed the design and more closely integrated this blog with the rest of the ManageFlitter site.Read this post
For the last year we have had 2 flavours of ManageFlitter: the free version of ManageFlitter and the Pro version.
Over the next couple of weeks we will be making some changes to the free version - the Pro version will stay exactly as is.
Don't worry - you will still be able to use the free version as usual but with a "bonus system" in place.Read this post
