I can't delete a List or remove anyone from a list.

  • Problem
  • Updated 9 months ago
Whenever I try to delete a list nothing happens. Also, when I try to remove a friend from a certain list by unchecking it, it goes through the cycle & the check reappears therefore not removing them from the list. Lastly, it doesn't remove people I unfollow from lists. Why would I still want them in the list if i'm not following them any longer?

Same here. When I try to remove someone from one of my lists, it doesn't work. I uncheck, get a spinny wheel, then the check reappears. Tried to block the person - no go - still on list. Tried to add person to another list and remove the first - no go - now on two lists that I can not edit (remove).

This issue has resolved itself for me. I can now uncheck people and remove them from a list. I have no idea what changed, it just works now.

Same here, Dan. I haven't had any trouble adding users to lists, but removing them is a different story.

Either the problem has been fixed or I have figured out the solution to it. The replies I have been getting have not been helpful but I dont believe it is error on the subscribers' part but rather a technical error. I never can read the replies--no message??!

I've always had this problem since lists were introduced and it's frustrating because I accidentally added some users to the wrong lists and now I can't correct that. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I still don't have a solution to this problem, but maybe this will help. As of yesterday, both Google Chrome and Internet Explorer did not allow me to remove a user from a list. I tried it today using Safari, and the check was removed like normal. The only other thing I did differently was using my home computer instead of my work computer, but I don't think that matters.

Likewise! I created PRIVATE LIST of people. I added someone to it who I now want to remove. I have tried to remove this person by unclicking their name but I cannot remove this person from my list. The only way seems to be to unfollow the person entirely, which I do not want to do!

So Twitter, what say you? Please, a response is needed!

My browser is Opera.

Exact same issue; very frustrating! When I try to remove someone from a certain list by unchecking it, it goes through the cycle & the check reappears therefore not removing them from the list.

So it's all about the Browser... I have this problem on Opera, but not Firefox. I don't like using multiple browsers at the same time... but I guess I will when I need this function.

for me it was not about the browser - i tried several browsers in several OS'. i created a list right after they were introduced, that i changed my mind about right after and tried to delete, with no success..

i've tried to delete it every week or two since then, and recently it worked. i don't know what twitter did, but now lists seems to work for me...

Have the same problem, it's happening to my only public list. private lists are working fine!
I tried FF, IE, Chrome and even tweetdeck, nothing works! can't add/remove profiles and can't delete the list!

This problem seems to come and go. If it doesn't work, just leave it, go have fun, and try again a day or two later

I agree... I would suspect a replication issue is causing this. However, it would be nice to receive confirmation from Twitter Devs on this

I've also been having troubles with lists for the past days.

I kept reading on blogs and forums about how they've always been screwy. I tried all browsers and everything.

This morning, the problems were solved (for now) when I simply logged out and in on Chrome. I'm not sure why it worked so simply this time, because I've been trying with incognito, where you'd have to log in also. Anyway, give it a go.
