Check out a follower

For all of the great tools that Twitter provides your account, there’s one that’s missing.

I can, for example, take a look at my followers or who I follow.  But, it’s in a list form.

What to do, though, if I want to know if a specific person is following me.  It’s easier to find out if I’m already following someone by trying to add them again in Hootsuite because I’m presented with an error and a suggestion that I’m probably doing it.

If I have time to wait for SocialBro, a great monitoring service to complete it’s update, it does the trick and more.

But what if I just want a quick test?

I like the service “DoesFollow“.

At present, it does one thing and does it well and quickly.

Just complete the fields with user names.

Does my #ECOO13 co-chair Cyndie Jacobs follow me?  (She better…)
