Thank you for the tip. I just tried ManageFlitter. Although I can easily get lists of people to unfollow, from what I can tell, I have to unfollow them one at a time. I am looking for the batch unfollow command.

This ties into our Autodesk sustainability initiatives. Our CAD software gives our customers the ability to evaluate the sustainability of the designs they create. For example, a tankless water heater manufacturer can compare the natural gas consumption of its design to that of a traditional hot water heater with a tank. In my case, I am sharing my personal results based on the improvements done by American Home Energy such as adding insulation in my attic.
