Twitter has become one of the most popular networking tools among individuals, businesses & journalists. Social networking experts also predict further growth of Twitter & how it can be used by large companies to collect customer feedback.
Later part of this article lists one of Joost‘s popularly used Twitter counter dashboard for all Apple Mac users.
You can check the number of followers you have on Twitter on Twitter Counter.
Another feature of Twitter Counter is to show comparative follower counts. You can enter 2 Twitter IDs to see how each ID has grown its followers in the last 7 days, last 30 days & in the last 3 months.
Since people have also integrated Twitter with their publishing platforms & used it to generate buzz with blog posts, many people found it valuable to increase the number of people following them.
Twitter Counter has also created an API that can be used by software developers to read & display the Twitter Counter data on different websites.
One of the interesting services available to see the number of Twitter followers without using Twitter Counter directly is using @Woot. It is a Twitter interface with Twitter Counter. You can find out your Twitter followers right from Twitter if you send a tweet “@woot me“.
Joost de Valk has also created a Twitter Counter Dashboard Widget for Apple Mac OSX based computers. If you have multiple logins on Twitter, you can edit the Widget to allow you to monitor multiple IDs too. The process is described in one of the comments by Ricky Buchanan.
