Things You'll Need

  • internet connection

Step 1

As you will see, to follow someone on Twitter, you must usually access that person's Twitter page. That's fine and all, but how do you find someone's page? If you don't know anyone on twitter (or, probably more accurately, if you haven't yet discovered people you know on Twitter), how do you find someone to follow? Fortunately, Twitter offers a number of features that make it fairly easy to find people you know or people who are even worth following. I provide the following details.

Step 2

The best way to get started is to use the FIND on TWITTER feature, which enables you to scour the database of tweeters for someone you know. You can search by first name, last name, or even the person's Twitter username.

Step 3

Hers's how it works. (1). Sign in to your twitter account; (2) Click find people. (The find people page appears); (3) Click the Find on Twitter tab; (4) Use the text box to type the name (first or last or both) of the person you're looking for. Using both first and last names is usually the way to go here. If that doesn't work, use just the last name or the first name, whichever is more unique. If all you have is a partial username, you can enter that instead. (5) In the search results, click the person's avatar or username to check out their profile.
