Is there any way to sort someone's Twitter followers by most recent and through a Third Party or API?

. 7 min read

Navigating the dynamic world of social media, particularly Twitter, is crucial for marketers, influencers, and businesses aiming to stay ahead of the curve. Keeping track of your followers, especially the newest ones, can give you an edge in engagement and strategy. While Twitter doesn’t offer an easy way to sort followers by their join date, third-party tools and APIs can fill this gap.

One standout solution is Circleboom!

The Challenge with Twitter's Native Interface

Twitter provides a lot of functionality, but it falls short when it comes to sorting followers by the most recent. This limitation makes it difficult to engage promptly with new followers. Fortunately, third-party tools like Circleboom are designed to bridge this gap and provide additional features to enhance your Twitter management.

How to Search Twitter Accounts by Join Date
Checking the dates that users join Twitter is critical because Twitter usually doesn’t keep fake/spammer accounts for too long. So, for example, if you see an account that joined Twitter a few years ago, this means the account is less likely to be fake or a bot.
