At its core, Twitter is a simple social networking tool that offers little by way of management features. Often, you may want to organize your followers by seeing who's most active, who follows you back, or even just by alphabetical order to help you get your messages and promotions to specific followers quickly. Several third-party developers have created management apps that connect with your Twitter account and let you sort your followers how you want. This functionality not only enables you to find specific followers, but also saves you time in the process.

Type your Twitter username into the text box and then click "Submit." Wait for the page to load your Twitter followers.
Click the "Sort By" drop-down box and select "Name" or "Username." Sorting by name filters your followers by their full names, starting with their first names. For example, "John Smith" would appear before "Mike Anderson." Sorting by username filters your followers by their Twitter handles. Those whose handles begin with numbers appear before those with letters.
