If you’re like me, you find Twitter can have a high noise to signal ratio. I wrote recently about stopping the fire hose for blogs, but it can be trickier on Twitter, where you don’t have Google Reader’s Trends.
To this end, I built a little tool to help you tone down your Twitter following list: Unladen Follow. It scans your incoming tweets, and uses some metrics to suggest people for you to unfollow. I imagine that an unfollow helper may be construed as antisocial, but I think of it the other way around. By unfollowing a couple spammy users, you can socialize with many more casual Twitterers without overloading your brain.
I have a todo list for version 2, but I’m curious what the Twitter users in the crowd think of it. Is it neat? Is it useful? Is it evil?
