Tip: How to Remove Yourself From a Bad Twitter List – Reputation Management for Lawyers

    Online Marketing for Lawyers    October 7, 2015

We all love Twitter but did you know anyone can create a list and add you to it? That’s great if you are being added to an interesting or professionally favorable list. Not so great if it’s a list about lawyers who like to kick cats.

Just the other day I saw in my notifications tab someone added me to a list that was pretty smarmy in my humble opinion (though not about cat kicking). My immediate reaction was to disassociate myself and get unlisted – fast. I looked for a “Remove” or trash can symbol to get off the list. Nothing. I looked under “Lists” in my profile settings – It has lists you are subscribed to or appear on, but nothing to really manage those lists.

How can I get removed from this stupid Twitter list?

The thought of tweeting directly to the list’s creator occurred to me…. But I assummed he/she was not exactly the reasoned and principled type. So I turned to my favorite search engine, Google, and found this very query on a site called askaaronlee.com.

So, as Aaron suggested, here are the steps to remove yourself from a list.

  • Click on the twitter list that you’ve been listed on.
  • Click on the user/twitter handle that created that list
  • Click BLOCK
  • Click UNBLOCK
  • Done!

I followed the above and it worked like a charm!

So if you are a lawyer and find yourself added to a stupid Twitter list – Or worse – A professionally compromising Twitter list, the above steps will remove your handle from the offending list and protect your good name and reputation.

As a “P.S” to the powers that be at Twitter, having a native feature allowing users the ability to approve or disapprove (list or de-list) from lists would be welcomed by many users I am sure.

Again, many thanks to Aaron Lee!
