    OK, so you have your Twitter account and you'd like to be notified or easily be able to tell if a certain Twitter user has started following you, without having to manually check often.

    Anybody know of a way?

    You are getting emails when somebody follows you.

    I don't mean just anybody, I mean when a certain user follows me.

    Example, if @xyz follows me back, I'd like to know...

    the best i can do: here's a tool where you can put a twitter handle under 'Quick Follower Check' and see if that handle follows you or not:
    Code:
    http://tweet.grader.com/
    no automatic notification tho

    I think the only way to tell if a particular person starts following you is if you are able to direct message them. You could probably just send them a link in the DM that when clicked, went somewhere and fired off some sort of alert to you depending what your need is ie; email, popup, sms. Probably redirect it to some sort of free gift or info page.


    That's what I thought from this video anyways.

    With the new twitter you can now just go on someone's page and see of they are following you or not
