Checking for users who don't followback on Twitter

Posted: Sunday, 17 August 2014

Since I no-longer "digest" my news from twitter,

I maintain my twitter account solely for people interested in "subprojects" that I embark on, and to stop others from grabbing at "extramaster".

I am aware of those that don't really care about my tweets and about the fact that a substantial portion of twitter users are bots.
And so, to keep my twitter followers as close to 1:1 as possible, I created a little online tool which identifies users who are not following you, hence not "followbacking".


In order to check for Twitter users that don't follow you back/aren't following you, then you can follow the steps below.

  • Step 1: Visit the landing page -
  • Step 2: Click on the "Login to Twitter" button.
  • Step 2.5: Authorize the application with Twitter, or if you already have, let it login automatically.
  • Step 3: Look through the accounts that aren't following you (that you follow), and have fun!
Please keep note that if you want to build a semi-meaningful relationship with me, feel free to have a chat with me on Google+! Twitter feels too much like a race, and it's doomed to fail anyways.
