Follow someone on Twitter to subscribe to their Tweets and see them on your timeline.
Following is what makes the Twitter experience all your own. Find the voices who speak to you: friends, sports stars, actors, comedians, industry experts, and more.
When you follow an account, you’ll see them on your following list and their Tweets will appear in your Home timeline. We’ll notify the person you follow, and you may even get a follow back.
How to follow someone on Twitter
Ready to start following? You’ve got some options:
- Use the dropdown menu (or hover on desktop) in a Tweet.
- Select the Follow button next to the account name (in search results or a list).
- Visit the account profile and tap the Follow button.

Can you just follow on Twitter?
Following on Twitter isn’t mutual.
Someone who thinks you’re interesting can follow you, and you don’t have to approve it or follow them back.
If you want to approve who follows your Tweets, protect your Tweets. The same rules apply—you can approve followers, but you don’t have to follow them back.
What is the difference between following and follow on Twitter?
Your “following” list contains all the users you follow on Twitter; your “followers” list contains the users who follow you.
If you’re accessing your account from your computer, select Home.
You can see your following and followers numbers under your username.
