See Who Someone Recently Followed on Twitter: Most social media platforms like Instagram, Snapchat, and YouTube are generally used for either entertainment purposes or to connect with family and friends. However, Twitter prioritizes current affairs and informative political discussions. Twitter also has a “short-form content only” policy, which is very well-suited for the busy lifestyles of people today.
While most Twitter users prefer to tweet at least 4 times a day, many users just want to be up-to-date with the world’s current affairs without putting out any information of their own, and we respect that.
So altogether, Twitter presents the current affairs of the world to you in the most concise way possible. This is the biggest reason why it is still in the running, even with strong competitors like Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat, Tumblr, and more.
In today’s blog, we will be answering a frequently asked question about how to see who someone recently followed on Twitter.
So, if you wish to see recent followers of either a friend or a celebrity, we got you.
How to See Someone’s Recent Followers on Twitter
Step 1: Open the Twitter app on your smartphone and log in to your account.
Step 2: At the bottom of the screen, you’ll see that you are currently surfing your home page, which is represented as a house-shaped icon. Next to it, you’ll see the symbol of a magnifying glass, which is called the Search option. Click on it.
Step 3: The Search option will take you to the Twitter search bar. All you need to do now is to tap on the bar, type in the name of the person whose recent followers list you wish to see, and click Enter.
Step 4: Once you find the person you are looking for in the search results, click on their username to see their profile.
Step 5: When you’re on their profile, on the top of the screen, below their banner, profile picture, and bio, you will see their following and followers. Tap on followers, which will take you to another page with the list of all their followers.
Step 7: You’re almost there! Twitter organizes the following and the followers of its users in reverse-chronological order. So, the username of the last person to follow them would be on top of the list.
There you go! You now know how to see who someone recently followed on Twitter.
However, there is one small problem with this process. If this person has a private account, then you won’t be able to see their followers list without following them first.
So, if you still wish to do so, all you need to do is request to follow them and wait for them to accept your follow request. If they don’t accept your request, then we are sorry to inform you that there is nothing else you can do to see their followers.
