How To Find Your Contacts on Twitter

Twitter is a great platform for staying up-to-date on what’s happening globally and a wonderful tool for networking and building relationships. But if you’re new to the bird app, it might be a little daunting to figure out who to follow.

Quick Answer

Luckily, you can import your contacts on Twitter pretty easily; here’s how:

1) Go to ‘Setting and Privacy’.
2) Select ‘Privacy and safety’.
3) Select ‘Discoverability and contacts’ and turn on the ‘Import contacts’ option.

Twitter is more about thoughts and words than looks and images, making it the perfect place to connect with people you know and have interesting conversations. So find your colleagues, classmates, or old friends from school on Twitter and get tweeting.

We’ll show you how to find your contacts on Twitter on both the Twitter app and twitter.com.

Method #1: Using Twitter App

This method should work for both iPhone and Android users.

  1. Open the Twitter app on your phone and go to your profile by tapping on the photo icon on the top left corner of the screen.
  2. Tap on ‘Setting and Privacy’ in the menu.
  3. Go to ‘Privacy and safety’.
  4. Scroll down and tap on ‘Discoverability and contacts’ under the Discoverability and contacts section.
  5. Turn on the ‘Let others find you by your email address’ and ‘Let others find you by your phone number’.
  6. Toggle on the ‘Import contacts’.
  7. Confirm your action by tapping ‘OK’ when prompted.

Once you turn on the option to import contacts, Twitter will start scanning your phone’s address book for people already on Twitter. This might take a few minutes, depending on how many contacts you have on your phone.

You’ll see a list of contacts on Twitter, and you can follow them by tapping on the ‘Follow’ button next to their name. From there on, your contacts will also appear in the ‘people to follow’ section on your Twitter home screen.

Remember!

You can only find the contacts who have allowed others to find them by their email address or phone number.

Method #2: Using Twitter Web App

If you’re using twitter.com, you can turn on the option to let other people find you by your email address or phone number. However, you’ll need the app on a mobile device to sync your contacts for this method to work.

  1. Go to twitter.com on your computer and log in to your account.
  2. Click on the ‘More’ option in the left sidebar and choose ‘Setting and Privacy’.
  3. On the next page, click on the ‘Privacy and safety’ option in the left sidebar.
  4. Scroll down and click on ‘Discoverability and contacts’ in the right sidebar.
  5. Turn on the ‘Let others find you by your email address’ and ‘Let others find you by your phone number’.
  6. You’ll see a ‘Manage contact’ option below the two options you just turned on. Click on it to allow Twitter to access your contacts on any associated mobile device. Remember, you need to have the Twitter app installed on your phone for this to work.

That’s all there is to it. You’ve now linked your contact list to Twitter. All of your contacts on Twitter will be displayed in the ‘People to follow’ section, and the new contacts who join Twitter will also appear there.

Remember!

The Twitter algorithm also looks at who you follow, retweet, and like when suggesting people to follow in the ‘People to follow’ section. So if you’re not seeing your contacts there, it’s because you don’t have any mutual interests.

Conclusion

If you want to connect with your friends on Twitter, import your contacts and follow them. All you have to do is turn on the import contacts setting in the Twitter app or twitter.com. Once you’ve done that, your contacts will appear in the ‘People to follow’ section. Follow more people with similar interests and interact with them; the Twitter algorithm will learn your interests and suggest more people follow.
