Twitter Question: Notified When Someone Follows You

by John W.G. 7 replies
Is there a setting in Twitter that I can turn that will tell me when someone starts following me.

I noticed my followers went up today but without spending about 5 minutes trying to figure it out it's hard to tell which followers are new

thanks,
John

    Should be in your settings, there is an email section to turn on when a visitor follows you, it is on my settings anyways.

      John,

      In the menu accross the top, click on 'Settings'. Then the tab 'Notices'. Make sure the box is checked for 'New Follower Emails'.

      That should have you taken care of.

    Its in your settings under "Notify".
    By using tweetlater.com, you can send them a thank you message automatically they hit the 'follow' button.

        Wow, tons of great info.

        I was also hoping to find out how to send a message.

        No problem if I get an email notifying me of new followers.

        Thanks,
        John

          A couple of other things about TweetLater.com

          You can automatically follow the person who just followed you.
          You can send a message to the people who just followed you either direct or public @

          The best part!!!
          You can schedule tweets. YES, That's right... just like Aweber, you can schedule tweets.

          This is great for affiliate marketing and launches. I recently set up a series of 20 or so tweets to go off at different times. I was promoting Jeff Mills streaming Super Conference offer where you can watch the seminar from your home for like $7.

          So I set up 2 tweets per speaker per day over the 3 days.

          It works!

          And it works well!

          I already have tweets in there for MONTHS... Birthdays, launch messages, etc.

    I think the question is really to see if there is a way to see when someone started following not just to get an email when someone does.

    I don't believe that you can see when someone started following you like a report or anything. The best option is to just turn on your email alerts like mentioned above and keep an eye out for the twitter emails coming in.
