    Talking Remove twitter contacts from "All Contacts"

    I opened my contacts list today and all of my twitter and facebook contacts were part of my "all contacts" list. I removed both twitter and facebook from my "my accounts" list and although this removed all of my facebook contacts (who were not part of my google contacts list), I still have hundreds of twitter contacts, none of which are in my google contacts list. When I try to delete individual twitter contacts, I'm told I have to delete them from the respective program. Is there anyway I can get rid of all of these contacts? I know I can just leave my contacts list set to only show the google contacts, but it seems like I shouldn't have to compromise like that and that I should be able to remove all of these twitter contacts from my contacts list. This is my first android phone, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

    This question has been asked about facebook, hotmail, and other contacts being merged with the phones contact list. There has to be a solution to this, otherwise some of us would end up with hundreds of entries in our phone contact list, making it unusable.

    Any suggestions?

    Like I said, I was able to remove all of my facebook contacts (with the exception of those individuals who are actually in my phone contact list) but I haven't been able to find any reference on how to move the twitter contacts. I've even deleted the twitter app in hopes that would fix it, but no luck

    do what i did. go into the market and download the official twitter app, its got choices between 2 widgets and works quite well. you dont need seperate widget for updating and seperate widget for being updated.

    verizon was having problems with switching contacts over, so at the time i used the version of twitter that came with the fone, i had no contacts...but it annoyed me to have these things in my contacts list, i really WANTED to use the ap that was built in, but i ultimately deleted the account from my phone (in the "my accounts" ap, with all your other aps) and got the official one, glad i did.

    although it dosent seem to update by itself, i jusat click it then press the lil refresh, works good for me as its not constantly hogging battery life by searching for updates, and if i wanna see waats up all i do is ppush a button

    I may have missed it, but please let us know how you removed your facebook contacts from the phone contact list.

    Thanks

    To remove all of my facebook friends from my contact list I hit the menu button while in my contact list, then I selected "more" and then I selected "manage accounts" Then I clicked on the Facebook account and deleted it from "my accounts". This removed the facebook pictures for all of my regular phone contacts that use facebook, but it was worth it in that it removed all of my facebook friends who I don't have (or want) in my phone contact list.

    123noob321 - Thanks for the tip on the various twitter apps but I don't quite understand how downloading the "official" twitter app can help me remove all of my twitter friends from my "all contacts" phonebook list. I was hoping that uninstalling the twitter app that it would delete my twitter friends from my "all contacts" list for my phone/phonebook but this has not worked. If I'm missing a step, please let me know. Thanks

    do the same thing you did with facebook, delete it from your acounts (where it has your google account, etc) this should efectively remove them from your contacts.

    then you download the official one so you can still use twitter on your phone. you dont really HAVE to download the twitter ap to get them out of your contacts.

    I did do the same thing I did with facebook (i.e. removed twitter from "my accounts") but for some reason, the twitter contacts, all 2100 of them, are still in my contact list. It currently doesn't show that I'm connected to twitter in "my accounts" or under my "social networking" button but all of my twitter contacts are still there. When I try to delete them directly from my contact list it tells me that I have to delete them from the appropriate program listed below (with no program listed). I'm assuming the only way I can delete someone is by deleting them as a friend in twitter, which I don't consider to be a viable option. It seems that I need to figure out how to unlink my phone from my twitter account somehow.

    I had the same problem on my Droid X and found this thread...with no help

    And then I figured out how to fix it on my own. Haha.

    So, to others with this issue... the fix is:

    Go to your twitter client
    go to the options and sign out of twitter
    kill the twitter app
    go to your contacts... yes the tweeple are still there.
    go to options>more>manage accounts and delete your twitter account
    ...yes the tweeple are STILL in the contacts
    go back to the twitter app
    now login...and this time when it asks, say DO NOT SYNC.

    and ta-da, it should have removed all the twitter contacts from the 'all contacts' list
