I met someone at a concert but I didnt get their contact info. All I really know if their first name and I am definitely sure they are following a band on twitter.

Is there anyway to get a list of all the followers and I can just manually search that for the name? There has to be a better way than loading 20 people at a time.

When you say "following a band on facebook" do you mean twitter? Are those two things just unrelated? – batpigandme May 22 '13 at 18:19

Try Followerwonk. If the band has fewer than a certain number of followers, you will be able to search through the bio information of all followers for free.

  1. Sign in

  2. Click "Analyze Followers"

  3. Enter the band's Twitter handle

  4. Click "View All"

  5. and then sort by the relevant info ie. "Real name"

There are several other third-party Twitter apps that provide similar services.

Definitely easier than downloading an exhaustive list! – batpigandme May 23 '13 at 10:35
That'll only work if you're a subscriber on Followerwonk. – Daniel Pendergast Sep 14 '13 at 16:15
