Part 1 - Twitter
There is a method which is more effective than creating a dummy profile and following someone on twitter. That my friend, is the power of "twitter search". Let us do an example.
Open your twitter homepage and type in "the name" of the person who you want to track in the search box. Here we take the example of Arun Basil Lal, good friend and amazing blogger who runs Million Clues Technology blog.
After which you press "Search" button and you are displayed with all the results. These results give not only the tweets made by him, but also people who have replied to him publicly and also his retweeted tweets. Now to make things easier in this process you can do 2 things.
1. Save the search and reuse it. It even creates a very easily accessible link. (pics below)
2. Look Ma! Twitter search has RSS feeds too !
That's the end of part 1. We will be exploring more and more ways to stalk people on this exiciting series of "Effective ways to stalk someone secretly on the Internet". Signing off till then - Quakeboy
