Social Hunt is a free web app that lets you track Twitter users and get notifications when they update their timeline with new post. You will quickly get email notification(s) and won’t miss any new photo or tweet posted by those users.
Interesting thing about this app is that it lets you track even those users who you are not following or who are not following you. Until their Twitter profile is public, it will track those people, and notify you. So, even while working on PC and when not using Twitter, you will remain updated with posts of your favorite users.
You can track multiple users in a few seconds. Moreover, you can also untrack a particular user, whenever needed.

How to Track Twitter Users and Get Email Notifications When They Tweet?
Using this app is an easy task. Here are the steps to track Twitter users and get email notifications:
Step 1: Open the home page of this app and login to your Twitter account. Authorize this app to access your Twitter account and move to the second step.
