How to Download a List of Your Twitter Followers
Twitter is not dead! Your followers are valuable and I am going to show you how to download a list of your Twitter followers.
Two days ago, I sat at a social media conference in Boston where I had the good fortune of sitting and chatting with three other social media pros – a marketing professor, a financial industry consultant, and another who works in corporate communications. We learned quite a bit from each other sitting at a round-table rather than a typical auditorium style seating. I found myself defending Twitter as a social media marketing channel.
One of the most common question I hear is, ‘What social media channel should my business use?” I have an overview of social channel stats on a YouTube video. (By the way, your brand should most likely be on YouTube too!) I will agree Twitter’s user growth is stagnating, but they are making changes to the channel to stay relevant and keep up with other giants such as Facebook. Twitter has targeted audiences for paid social ads. There is Twitter tracking that is easy to install. Yes, posts are limited to 140 characters, but that allows users to skim for the content they really want.
Our Twitter followers are valuable. We can market to them or even more them over to other social media ad platforms like Facebook. I need a list of Twitter followers for an old-school promotion. New Twitter followers will receive some SWAG – a hat or t-shirt. First, we had to verify that they follow the client’s account. Getting your Twitter followers is easy. There is a great get Twitter followers spreadsheet on Google Drive. You will need a Twitter developer’s API key to use it, but it works quote well.
I have been looking for a neat tool like this for some time, so finding this easy way to download Twitter followers was a huge help!
