Removing yourself from someone else’s Twitter list isn’t as hard as you may think. It will be noticed though if the listing is a small list. This is a great way to avoid cyber bullying, stalking, and harassment or just general bad lists.
Note that should you use this method to remove yourself from someone’s Twitter list you will have to press refresh after you have done it. This method of list removal doesn’t work on someone’s deleted account. For list removal from someone’s deleted Twitter account list, you should contact Twitter for assistance, or wait for all data from that deleted account to be totally erased in 90 days, provided of course they don’t log in again. Also note that when you do this, you will be removed from all the listings the person has added you to. So think twice before you take this action.
To remove yourself from someone’s Twitter list, you must be logged into Twitter. Which you can do so by going to http://www.twitter.com once you are logged in, click on “view profile, lists, then ‘Member of’. Now you should see all the lists people have added you to. Find the Twitter listing you wish to remove yourself from. To the right of each of those listings, you will see the person who has created it. Click on their photo. By the following button is a person icon with a down arrow, click that then a window will drop down. Click on block. Because I don’t wish to make enemies, I would recommend unblocking them, and adding them back if you were already following them. You can blame the “drop” off their friends list on the popular Twitter glitch that causes people to unfollow people.
This does work, but you may not be able to see it’s effect right away, also if you block and unblock too quickly it also won’t show up. I find it best to press block, refresh, go back to the user, and add them. I’ve personally removed myself from over thirty lists doing this method. It’s quick, and easy and it shouldn’t bother anyone.
If by chance you end up added back to those lists just take these steps all over again, but this time leave the person on block. Twitter should make an option for removal, or at least asking permission since they also offer the ability for the lists to be public or private. With social media being an easy way to look a potential applicant for a job, imagine what they would think of some of the lists they are added to on Twitter.
