How Can I Find Out How Many Verified Twitter Accounts Follow Me?
Finding Verified Twitter Users That Follow You – Option 1
Now personally this is my favourite method, this method is with the software called SocialBro, you can “get accurate information about your community using different search criteria” with this handy app and it’s so easy to use, but this method may take a little while if you have a huge following etc.
- Visit the SocialBro website and download and install the app for your required system/browser.
- Run SocialBro, add your Twitter account and Synchronise you account (this may take some time on a free account).
- Now that your account has been synchronised, check out the section that says “Famous Followers”.
- Now you will see which Verified Users are following you, you can now follow them back, or even them add them to a Twitter List to keep an eye on what they are up to.
Finding Verified Twitter Users Following You – Option 2 [UPDATE TO ARTICLE]
Another method of finding those Verified Twitter Followers is by using the website Friend or Follow, with a few clicks you will be seeing those that are following you and a few other stats.
How to find those Verified Twitter Users:
- Visit Friend or Follow, log in with your Twitter account you want to check.
- Click on the tab “Friends”.
- Make sure that “Protected” and “Normal” in the “Show these types of users” section are deselected.
- Now view the results to see which Verified users are following you on twitter.
You can now hover over each of the Tweeters and see if you are following them and you can follow them if you wish.
One of the things that I would like to see on Friend or Follow is the option of adding or removing the user to and from one of your Twitter lists, this would be great if you want to keep a list of those kind enough to follow you.
