Why can't I see all my Twitter Followers and Followings? Here's the Solution!

. 4 min read

Today, I want to talk about something that's been on the minds of many Twitter users: the limited access to follower and friend lists. If you've noticed that Twitter isn't giving you full access to these lists any more, you're not alone.

But don't worry, there's a solution!

Let's dive into why this is happening and how you can still get the data you need.

Why the Restriction?

First off, why has X Twitter clamped down on sharing follower and friend lists? It's primarily about data protection and preventing data scraping. Data scraping is when automated systems collect data from websites without permission, which can lead to privacy issues and misuse of information. To safeguard user data, X Twitter has restricted access to this information, making it available only to verified partners.  

Here is the Elon Musk tweet about scraping & system manipulation.

So, what does being a "verified partner" mean? Essentially, it means that only certain trusted services have full access to Twitter's follower and friend lists. These partners adhere to Twitter's strict guidelines and use the data responsibly. For most of us, though, this means we can't easily export our followers or friends list directly from Twitter anymore.

But don't worry, there's a reliable solution for you! Circleboom, a trusted Twitter partner, can help you manage and access your follower and friend lists safely and export all your Twitter followers or followings.
