Twitual.comYou might have a lot of followers, and you might follow a lot of people on Twitter. However, do you ever stop to wonder what your actual mutual friends are, and who you follow that does not follow you back? If that is so, you are going to love a site like Twitual, as it basically lets you access that very same information at a flick of a wrist.

These include the number of followers the individual has, the number of people that he follows, and those who are followed by him and who follow him in return. The other two figures that are produced go by the names of “Fans” and “Idols”. The former are tweeps that follow him, but that he doesn’t follow himself, and the latter include those whom the user follows even though they do not follow him back.
