Comparing Twitter Followers on Differant Accounts

I have 2 Twitter accounts that I knew I had duplicates but wasn’t sure of an easy way to fix this, especially as both accounts have over 800 followers.

> Settings
> Account tab (defaults for this as the first tab)
> At very bottom of this page, under the Save button > Deactivate my account
