Services To Find If Someone Favorites Your Tweets on Twitter
By on January 28th, 2010

Favorites on are similar to the Likes on and Friendfeed, however, unlike Facebook and Friendfeed, Twitter does not provide any easy way to find out when one of your tweets is marked as their favorite by someone.

Quite sometime back I had written a tutorial on how you can find out when someone favorites your tweets, however, it has been a long time since then and several new Twitter services have cropped up which make the task a lot more easier. Here are some of the services you can use to find out when someone favorites your tweets.

Favstar

Favorite Tweets Tracked by Favstar

One of my favorites from the lot, Favstar.fm is a service which will allow you to keep track of who has added your tweets as favorites. Favstar will allow you to track favorited tweets for any Twitter user. It provides users with the most popular favorited tweets, most recent favorited tweets and also the tweets which are added as favorites by a particular user.

Favstar also provides users with an option to register so that you can favorite and retweet tweets from your Favstar.fm account.

Twitfave

Twitfave is another interesting service which provides users with an option to track who favorites their tweets. Though it is not as advanced as Favstar, it does provide users with an option to subscribe to the a RSS feed to track when someone favorites your tweets.

Though I did find other options to search when users favorite your tweets, I believe that these two are the best out there and do the job. If you think that there are any other better options for the task, feel free to let me know through your comments.

    favstar and twitfave seem to be both reliable. I am on Twitter so it's an advantage to capitalise on this. Tracking those who favourite your tweets will definitely let you know about them. Returning the favour will most certainly be an advantage. Thanks for the share. i will try these.

    Why would a random person, that I don’t even know, want to favorite a four month old Tweet of mine? It’s happened three times this month. The Tweet was from back in January and it was an apology for a disgusting Tweet that went out when someone hacked me. It’s now May, over four months later. What scam are these people up to?
