  • YSK there is a tool named sherlock that let's you check if your username exists across social media
    Remember apes: After the squeeze, you want to stay as anon as possible. If you still use an active (old) reddit account with a name you use across multiple services, you should check where the username is used and if it got personal information about you. Link to the tool:

  • OSINT open source suggestions
    Tbh a lot of osint you don't even need to use command line tools. Have a look at the osint framework which has many links to different websites useful for information gathering on a target. If you knew their email for example, you can find out what websites they've signed up for and possibly even their location. I suggest as a first step for osint is to check their social media profiles. Use a tool like Sherlock (it worked on termux the last time I checked) which searches many social media platforms with a username. Someone's social media profile can lead you to a literal treasure trobe of info, since people don't tend to think twice when posting their location or contact details publicly. Even if they show their hobbies and interests, that can help you lead info to build a word list to use against them in a password attack and so on.
