Show Fake Followers.

Would be great if you could analyse our followers, showing which ones are potentially Fake/Spam Followers. Then we could either block or report them, or both. Thanks.

        Would be great to get the oppertunity to sort your followers out in their Following:Followers Ratio(FFR). So you can easily see which people have a lower ratio.

        Let's say a twitter user has 20 followers and 1000 following(=2.00% FFR).

        Sort people on low ratio so you can easily unfollow them. These people are most-likely bots. This ensures you don't unfollow people with high ratio's which are probably real users.

        The ability to filter out followers using third party apps, though ironic, would be a huge help with this. While you might not be able to use the API to find third-party users (nor would that be practical), you can easily build a filter for accounts that are attached to a crowdfire account which will cut down tremendously on false follows.

        I submitted a dedicated suggestion for this here:

        Fake accounts often tweet the same thing over and over again. Also their Bio contains hash tags like #TFB #followback #instantfollow #INSTANTFOLLOWBACK

        My idea allows ---->
        * instagram users to see (How Many Picture Likes In Total) any follower have committed towards you in a list format from least to greatest.

        This feature helps you narrow who is a good person to keep following or who is a person to unfollow.

        It would be helpful if you guys suggest ways to find fake users. Here's a list of things I can think of:

        1. No tweets
        2. No profile picture

        Feel free to suggest other such things that you can think of.

        I only see one problem with this. who, what, and how is going to determine if a user is fake or not? But nice idea.
