How to Find Out Who's on Twitter

Save

Social media website Twitter allows users to post status updates and messages about virtually any topic. Once you've posted a message, other Twitter users can read it, share it and respond to it. Twitter is a useful way to connect with new and old friends and let them know what you're thinking, what you're doing and where you are. You can find out who else is using Twitter through a number of methods.

  • Open your Internet browser and navigate to the Twitter home page. In the search bar at the top of the page, type of the name of an individual to see if she has a Twitter account. Likewise, you can type the name of an organization to see if it's linked with a Twitter account. Browse the results to find the person or organization you're seeking.

  • Visit other social media websites such as Facebook. Because many Twitter users also use Facebook as a means of sharing their information, it's possible to link the two accounts together so that when you post on Twitter, your message is also displayed on Facebook. When perusing your friends' Facebook pages, as well as pages of businesses, look for Twitter updates on their Facebook wall or see if they have a Twitter account posted on the "Info" page on their Facebook page.

  • Browse to your favorite Web search engine and search someone's name and the word "Twitter" to see if that person has an account. For example, you could search "Barack Obama Twitter." Some names may yield multiple search results. To find the verified, or legitimate account of any given person, check to see if the account has a Twitter "Verified" badge on the right-hand, vertical menu.

  • Watch television advertisements to see if a company is publicizing its Twitter account. Oftentimes, a company's website, Facebook page and Twitter account information is included in the final screen on an advertisement.

  • Visit a Twitter directory such as TwitDir.com. On this page, type the name or a person or business into the search function to see if there's a Twitter account associated with the name you're searching.
