What is a Twitter “Follower”?

Followers are people on Twitter who follow you and therefore see your Tweets. If someone follows you:

  • They'll show up in your followers list.
  • They'll see your Tweets in their home timeline whenever they log in to Twitter.
  • You can send them direct messages.

If you follow someone on Twitter:

  • You are subscribing to their Tweets as a follower.
  • Their updates will appear in your Home tab.
  • That person is able to send you direct messages.
