Finding Twitter accounts near you is also helpful when you are especially looking to hire and collaborate or are looking for a target audience for your store. Many times, local businesses follow all accounts near them to increase their exposure to people around them. In this article, we will look at two good and easy ways to find Twitter accounts near you immediately.

Use the “Near You” feature on Twitter:

Twitter app/website has an inbuilt feature that allows you to find Twitter accounts close to you. Here’s how to use it:

  • Go to Twitter, and on the search bar at the top, type your search term. To search for accounts, click on the “People” tab at the top.
  • Once Twitter displays your search results, you will see an option “Near you” under “Location” on the right.

Use Circleboom’s Smart Search feature:

  • Login to the Circleboom app and on the Circleboom menu, click on “Search” -> “Smart Search.”
  • Enter your keyword in the search box.
  • Enter additional filters like number of followers, ignore fake accounts, show verified accounts, etc.
  • Now, to find Twitter accounts near you, enter the city or location according to your requirement. This will filter results based on the location selected by you.
  • Once added, click on “Search” to quickly filter your results.

If you want your search results to be more focused on other metrics like number of followers, verified accounts, specific cities, then using Circleboom’s smart search feature is a better option. With the smart search, you can pinpoint accounts that you would like to follow by using all the relevant filters.

Here’s how to use the smart search feature:

Pro tip: This process works the same as Twitter but it allows you to sort later unlike Twitter. You can sort the list by follower numbers, number of tweets, account creation date, and more. On Twitter, you don’t have this feature and you have to open every account to know more about it.
