As most of us know twitter has very much entered the mainstream with just about every kind of web user setting up their own account. New twitter apps seem to be arriving on the scene on a daily basis and the platform has seen it’s fair share of extension and adaptation of late.

I always hate having to follow and then unfollow soon after when I realize @so&so just isn’t tweeting down my alleyway.
Here’s how Foller.me works
Foller.me is a Twitter service that can provide you with the most detailed information about a specific Twitter user in the least amount of time! Here’s how it works.
You input a Twitter name into the searchbox and hit enter. Foller.me gets access to the profile of that user via the Twitter API, scans all the public info and the latest 200 tweets!
You can decide within a few seconds whether to follow back, making it super easy to build a realy solid twitter network without all the hassle of being a private investigator.
