How do I know if someone is following me back on Twitter?


Do you ever wonder if the people you are following on Twitter are following you back?

Here is a quick way to find out who is not following you back on Twitter:

Go to, type in your Twitter user name and wait. After a few moments you will see a display of all the people you are following that are not following you back.TwitterBird

Now that you have this information you have a few choices:

  1. Ignore the info – who cares if they are following me back or not?
  2. Unfollow everyone who is not following you – this is SOCIAL networking right? (to paraphrase @pheadrick)
  3. Reach out to those Unfollowers and let them know you are there and you care about what they have to say. If you acknowledge them they might notice you. Generally, everyone likes to be acknowledged.

What do you do with all your unfollowers?

    I love FriendorFollow, but one thing to be careful about (and I think it has a disclaimer to this effect) is that it does get things wrong from time to time. Twitter doesn’t make it particularly easy to figure out (especially if you have a lot of followers), but checking to make sure they really aren’t following you is a really god idea.

    Justin – thanks for the information. Good point to double check if someone is actually not following. What do you think is the best way to check? Maybe by sending them a DM.
