How to Sort Twitter Followers by Location


Twitter's interface at time of publication sorts your followers in chronological order by when they began following you, with the most recent followers first. It does not provide the option to sort followers by other criteria, such as location. Sorting by location can reveal potential new friends in your city or help you meet up with followers on your next trip out of town. You can sort your follower list by location with third-party Twitter tools such as, Twitter Sorter and ReFollow.
