Who you follow on Twitter determines what kind of experience you’ll have with this social media platform. It’s fine only to follow your close friends and family, but they might not post a lot of new information to offer.
That may pose a problem because Twitter is the go-to place to get the latest news headlines or hear about which celebrity is potentially getting canceled. The platform is what you make, but you may be unsure how to discover new accounts.
The best strategy is to see who follows who on Twitter and add accounts that appeal to you. There are a couple of ways you can do this, and we’ll discuss them both.
Checking Other People’s Twitter Followers
It may seem odd to lurk around friends and followers of specific Twitter accounts. However, that’s the standard approach on Twitter.
Sure, you’ll see retweets on your timeline and choose to follow the original poster’s page, but that’s not always so efficient. You can see who others are following on Twitter by exploring their page.
- Open Twitter and log in with your credentials.
- Click on any account from your Twitter timeline.
- When their profile page opens, click on the “Followers” option.
- Browse their followers’ list and click “Follow” next to the accounts you want to see on your feed.
You can spend hours doing this but only add a few followers. That’s because this approach is not only pretty random but relatively inefficient. There’s a better solution to seeing who is following who on Twitter.
Using Circleboom to See Who Is Follows Who on Twitter
Let’s say that’s an official news outlet or a famous person whose Twitter posts you appreciate. Perhaps they link to other great content or contribute to Twitter media you enjoy.
Either way, you may want to explore their friends and followers as they might have common interests as you.
But how can you efficiently browse a specific Twitter account’s friends and followers?
If you have a Circleboom account, all you need to do is follow these steps:
- Log into the Circleboom Twitter management tool using your credentials.
- Go to the main menu on the screen’s left side.
- Select the “Search” option.
- From the drop-down menu, select “Account Search.”
Circleboom will introduce its advanced search tool on the dashboard. The entire purpose of this filter is to help you grow your Twitter social circle by targeting specific profiles.
Using Account Search Filter
The first decision you must make is whose followers or friends you want to see. For example, perhaps you want to check the Twitter account of New York’s Guggenheim Museum.
You’ll check Twitter and see their username is @Guggenheim. Promptly return to Circleboom and use the dedicated filter in the following way:
- Ensure the filter’s tab is set to “Friends.”
- Type “Guggenheim” into the dedicated search field and press “Enter.”
- Circleboom will take a few moments, but swiftly list accounts the Guggenheim Museum follows on Twitter.
To learn more, you can scroll through the listed accounts and click on each. Circleboom will provide a summary of each Twitter account. The number of friends, followers, likes, and how many tweets they have is all readily available information. You can even see their latest tweet.
However, you can filter the list further to make the search a little more straightforward. For example, by default, Circleboom checks the “Hide the profiles I visited within [x] days” box. You can either uncheck it or change the number of days. The range is between 10 and 180.
Furthermore, you can check the “Hide Eggheads” box, which eliminates any Twitter account without a profile picture. Users can also check the “Hide Protected” box, which excludes accounts with protected tweets you can’t see.
Finally, if your goal is to follow more interesting Twitter accounts, you can utilize two additional filters. The “Hide Inactive Accounts” box hides the Twitter profiles without recent posts. Whereas the “Show only Verified” option gives you access to the blue check mark accounts Guggenheim Museum follows on Twitter.
If You Don’t Want to Follow More Twitter Accounts
Seeing who follows who on Twitter can offer insight into specific Twitter accounts. It’s also an opportunity for users to follow informative or fun new profiles.
But following too many Twitter accounts can disrupt your followers-to-friends ratio, which Twitter notes and may interpret unfavorably.
Instead, you can add these accounts to a Twitter List and check their content when you want. You don’t have to follow them, but you can still see what they are posting.
This is one of the most basic functions of Twitter Lists, which are largely unutilized on Twitter. However, Circleboom allows you to manage Twitter Lists easily. And if you want to add new accounts in bulk, this is how to do it:
- Search for Twitter accounts of friends’ followers using Circleboom.
- Apply all the filters you want to get a curated list.
- Select Twitter accounts from the list on the Circleboom dashboard. You can select all accounts at the same time.
- Click the “Add to Twitter List” button.
- A new window will pop up, asking you for additional settings. Choose to add accounts to an existing list or create a new list.
- If you’re adding to an existing Twitter list, select one from the drop-down menu. If you’re creating a new list, follow the prompts on the screen.
- Click “Add selection to this list.”
Keep in mind that you can add up to 100 people in one session to a specific Twitter list. Also, the list you create with Circleboom is automatically set to private. If you want your list to be public, you must change it from your Twitter account page.
Only Following the Best Twitter Accounts
Twitter is a massive platform, and curating your feed can take some time. You don’t want only to follow profiles that retweet other people’s thoughts or spam your timeline with nonsense. Instead, you can use Circleboom and research Twitter accounts you like.
Seeing who they follow or who follows them can lead to exciting new Twitter content, and that’s always amazing. Perhaps you can start with Twitter accounts that are more selective about who they follow.
Whatever you choose, Circleboom is there to make it an easy process.
