Team tweeting with respect for the audience

We've got an interesting problem to solve over at

There are eight of us active in the project right now, and @quick2wire also has its own twitter account. Several of us have known each other for years; there is quite an overlap between the groups of people who follow us on twitter. There are also some big differences.

We're trying to work out who re-tweets what, in a way that gives us good coverage without our followers seeing nine copies of each tweet.

So I want to find out

  • for each team member, how many unique followers they have and 
  • for each pair of team members, how many followers they share
I have not found a tool that does both those things. If you know of one, please let me know! If we can't find one we will write a script and open source it, as this must be a common problem.
