This is a proof of concept of a method for finding the IP address of a twitter user. Please read this blog post for the whole info, although there is nothing special here.

The complete process is:

  • Create a new twitter account, and make sure nobody follows it
  • Use the button below to generate a random URL. DO NOT OPEN THAT URL IN YOUR BROWSER!!!
  • Write down the ID that will appear below the URL
  • Write a targeted tweet from your new and unfollowed account mentioning the person whose IP address you want to find out, and include the link you generated in step 2. A targeted tweet must include some personal info (for example: Hey Mike, haven't seen you in a while, do you still live in Atlanta? Here's a pic of you I always remember!! http://www.bigjocker.com/twitter/images/83647562.jpg, the target name must be Mike and he must have lived in Atlanta. You want the user to click on the image, or let his twitter client open it as a preview)
  • Make sure nobody follows the account you are using!!
  • Return to this page and enter the code in the 'Enter your code here' box and press 'Submit'
  • Refresh that page until the IP address appears

  • Are you ready? Click on the button below!!!


    Do you already have an ID? Enter your code here and click submit to see if we have the IP address:


    Please note that this is only a proof of concept. IP addresses are public by definition and should not be considered a secret. Please do not use this tool with foul intentions :D
