How To See Hidden Followers On Twitter

It's not possible to see hidden followers on Twitter directly. If a follower is hidden, it's typically due to reasons like them being a spam account, locked, suspended, or because of the privacy settings of a private account. Additionally, Twitter has made changes to only show the most recent "page" of followers, approximately 30 at the time of writing.

While you might receive notifications of new followers, they might not always appear in your follower list if they unfollow you shortly after or if they fall under the hidden criteria. Beware of third-party tools or services claiming to reveal hidden followers; they may not be genuine and could pose security risks to your account.

Reasons Why Followers Are Hidden

  1. Spam Accounts: Twitter might automatically hide followers perceived as spam based on quality settings.
  1. Locked Accounts: Followers with locked profiles are temporarily removed from your visible follower list until their account status is restored.
  2. Suspended Accounts: Accounts that violate Twitter's guidelines may be suspended, resulting in their permanent removal from your follower list.
  3. Deactivated Accounts: Users who deactivate their accounts temporarily disappear from your follower list unless they reactivate their profiles.
  4. Private Accounts: Followers with private settings remain hidden from your list until you're approved to follow them.
  5. Technical Glitches: Occasionally, technical issues might result in followers being temporarily invisible on your list.
  6. Shadowbanning: Although not confirmed, there's speculation that shadowbanning might cause certain followers to be hidden.
  7. Blocking: If you block a user on Twitter, they cannot view or access your followers list.
  8. Truncated Lists: To deter web scraping, Twitter displays only the most recent followers, which can cause older followers to be hidden from immediate view.
