I frequently receive requests from the twitter world on how I know when somebody stops following me and/or when somebody adds me to a twitter list. A few thought I constantly monitor and search twitter; though I wish I was that ambitious, I use two tools that monitor and notify me:
TwUnfollow: “Notifies you about Twitter followers that are not following you any longer. At the moment we check the followers about four to five times a day” says their website.
I receive one email a day with a [usually] short list with links to the followers who decided to stop following. Use the information as part of your strategy. I know when I follow somebody it’s because I like the information they are posting and NOT because I simply want them to follow me back. A lot of the unfollows I receive are from accounts who have followed me, then when I do not follow back they decide to unfollow (which, I think is bogus – follow me because you like what I say, not to get more followers).
List Watcher: “It sends you a DM when: Someone adds you to a list, Someone deletes you from a list, A list with you is made private or deleted, and/or A list containing you is renamed” says the website.
If you follow @listwatcher they will do the rest! I absolutely love these DM’s; they keep me on top of lists that followers have added me to, directly view the list, and I can find new people to follow!
Hope these help! As always, if you have a question about Twitter, feel free to ask in the comments!
