Twitter: A greasemonkey script to show who follows youPosted: January 1, 2009 | Author: hilary | Filed under: blog | Tags: extension, firefox, greasemonkey, script, socialmedia, status, twitter | 9 Comments »
A couple of days ago I saw @skap5′s comment:
“Dear Twitter Is it too much to ask to add a follower marker so I can know if someone is following me and not just if I am following them?”
I think that Twitter could benefit from displaying more information on the home page, and this idea was easy enough to code up. It should save some time and make the Twitter homepage that much more useful.
The script displays a tiny icon on top of the portrait of people who are following you back on your Twitter home page. It leaves your non-followers alone, though it would be easy enough to develop a version that puts silly mustaches on them.
This is only a first version, and I welcome your comments and suggestions.

Updated February 5, 2009: The script has been updated to work with Twitter’s recent UI changes.
Updated March 31, 2009: The script has been updated to account for Twitter’s recent UI changes and the addition of AJAX updates.
