Social Media Profile Search


Look up phone number on 50+ social networks.

I believe you know how to find people on Twitter by name, but do you know how to find someone on Twitter when you don’t know the account name? It sounds tough to find someone on Twitter without a username as Twitter is such a popular social platform with millions of users. But don’t worry, the methods we’ve gathered would help you find someone on Twitter easily and quickly.

Upload and manage your contact

If you have the person’s phone number or email address, Twitter allows you to find the person on Twitter if the person does have a Twitter account.

Normally, Twitter will set Let people who have your email address/phone number find you on Twitter by default. Once you’ve uploaded your contacts, Twitter will suggest you follow their accounts.

If you don’t know how to upload your contacts, just follow the steps below.

  1. Log in Twitter.
  2. Tap the profile icon on the top left corner and tap Settings and privacy.
  3. Tap Privacy and safety.
  4. Scroll down and tap Discoverability and contacts.
  5. Toggle on Sync address book contacts. When you’re prompted, click Sync contacts.

When you finish the whole process, you could see the Twitter accounts associated with your contacts from the Who to follow pane.

If you couldn’t find the people’s account and you’re pretty sure he/she does have a Twitter account, they may turn off the settings so you can’t find their accounts through email or phone number.

Hint: If you don’t want others to find your account through the email address or phone number, click to find how to turn off the settings
