Getting quality followers is paramount, therefore check all new one.

You are notified of a new follower, but his/her profile does not fit your “Followers standards” What to do:
Login your account
Go to your “followers”
Find the new one
Click the “Gear”
Select “block”

You cannot delist but this will do the job

It's important to block the most egregious spammers as once you leave one many more tend to quickly follow.

You can report spam using
D spam @spammyusername too.

Blocking someone on Twitter is super-simple. As easy as clicking a single button. It IS in fact by clicking a single button. But there are some other things to know too.

Firstly, when you block someone it won't stop them logging out and looking at your profile, and seeing what you have written. You can only stop your updates from appearing on their "Friend's Updates" page. So don't just think by blocking someone gives you freedom to talk about them thinking they will never find out!

Secondly, they can still subscribe via RSS. They can have your latest posts send straight to their feed reader, or almost anywhere else.

Thirdly, they can just start following you in a different Twitter account.

Why not simply use tweet privacy?
