If you use Twitter, these are some tools that you might find helpful. None of them require you to enter your Twitter password. Because using those is pretty stupid, IMO. I will probably update this post as i find more/better tools for Twitter.
A quick rundown on who of those you’re following are not reciprocating. Sometimes I’ll get a notice of a random person started following me, and if they’re a real person with updates and a website, I usually follow them back. Often those people will unfollow me after a few days (and you aren’t notified of this). So, unless I find them especially interesting or helpful, I stop following them. This tool helps with those types of people.
This is a more specific check if a person is following you.
You can use this tool to check for deadbeat followers. If people haven’t updated recently, you can unfollow them. Unless someone is important for me to follow, I unfollow if they haven’t posted in a month.
You can see how your follower count goes up or down over time.

Last night for dinner we had biscuits with a variety of toppings. Sausage gravy, but also jams and apple butter and honey.
Geneva asked for honey, and so I poured on, quite heavily. “you’ll have to use your fork, since there’s so much honey”, I said. She explained how she would get terribly sticky if she tried to eat the biscuit with her hands. Then she asked, “What makes honey sticky?”
Being the always helpful father, I answered her question matter of factly… “The same thing that makes water wet.”
Not satisfied, she asked what makes water wet. Then Ashley popped in, “I know! I know!” She was eager to spread her knowledge. “Ice!”

This evening when I came home from work I was greeted with an interesting bit of knowledge. Geneva had peed outside. “Wow”, thought I. I asked her where she went, hoping that it wasn’t an open display to all the neighborhood.
“Next to the garage” she answered. “Whew” thought I. There’s a narrow strip three feet or so wide between our garage and our neighbor’s 7 foot fence. But then came the next tidbit…
“It was a different place than the last time”. “Oh boy”, thought I. She has done this more than once.
But then, to top it all off spectacularly, I learned that this plan was approved of by Mrs. Okimoto. “Needful”, thought I.
