Does anyone know of or use any third party sites or apps that would allow me to follow more than 2000 twitter users? I am not a prolific poster but find it very useful for following a few sectors I am interested in - but have hit the 2000 limit without any hope of picking up more followers myself, as rarely post. It's driving me mad!

I never knew there was such a limit. How many followers do you have?

I just looked... you have to have a similar number of people following you.

Can't you just get a free email address and open up another account under that name?

Dear Boulevard - I guess that is the way to go. Just thought there must be an app or something that would consolidate into one feed for ease. I see why twitter has a limit but it diesn't reflect how I use it and other social media - ie, follow every man and his dog who has ever seemed interesting (and why Facebook not showing every post drives me crazeeeee grin...

How on earth do you manage to read all of it though? Just checked and I follow 140 accounts, even with a couple of lists I probably miss about 75% of what's on my feed...

Have you tried messing around with Tweetdeck?

Ahhh, see that is the thing that took me a while to get - that you can't hope to be across all of it, and should dip in as and when... The thing is, though, that I have found if I browse by keyword or hash tag, the inanity of it all drives me mad, so I like to be able to narrow it down somewhat.

Tweet deck is a good point - haven't used it in a while. A
