What web application can I use to find if a user is following another one, on Twitter?

Just plug each username into Does Follow and it will tell you.

  • Looks fishy with the amount of permissions it asks for, especially since it should be possible to get this data without a login. So I'd rather recommend anyone to stay away from this service

  • I just tested it.. and I didn't get phished or doxxed yet, so I would call it a win. I don't really know what you can or could do with the twitter api, but I believe authentication is at least a requirement now.

Probably some more services out there to be found.

    It asks for permission so see your tweets, is that safe and necessary? They can't do that without login?

You can, of course, look on their Twitter profile to see who they are following. There is also a powerful webapp called Refollow which will allow you to do more powerful parsing and comparison of followers.


The simplest and the easiest one is https://checkfollow.com/

Just enter the twitter usernames and click find. enter image description here

  • If you are affiliated with the product, please disclose that in your answer. Thanks!
