How to tell if someone is following you
It took me a while to figure this out since it's not obvious, at least not from the main Twitter site. Basically, if someone is following you, then you can send them a DM (Direct Message). How to tell:
- Go to the person's Twitter page.
- In the right-hand navigation bar, check to see what actions you can take (listed under ACTIONS).
- If the person IS following you, you should be able to "message (twitname)" along with the ability to block them. If you can only block them, then it means they're not following you.
