How to Compare Twitter Followers Between Two Profiles

by Marina Martin

Looking at a particular Twitter account's followers is one way to find other Twitter users who are interested in the same topics. For example, people who follow your business competitors on Twitter may also be interested in your services or in your industry as a whole. Twitter users who follow an account you enjoy, such as a particular charity or a famous comedian, may share other interests with you, opening up the possibility for new friendships. Using a service to compare the followers of your account with another account can reveal new and useful people for you to follow.
