Find Twitter account by email or phone number

Apr 27, 2016 · 1 min read

At Twitter’s official applications or website, you can sync your contacts with Twitter.

It’s a really useful feature, but what if you can search anyone from email or phone number? Actually it’s possible too and there is too many tutorials for that and most of them includes at least 5–10 steps. I needed a simple solution for that, and created a tool.

If you want to try, you can visit

I don’t want to get found like this!

Yeah me too and luckily you can disable this feature. All you need to do is:

  • Go to your Twitter settings page
  • Click Security and Privacy section
  • Disable your Discoverability options. do not store any information at all, so when you change your discoverability options on Twitter it will immediately effect search results on too.
