Wish to know if there are followers or "comrades" of the giants in real-life practice, and such a thing known as "Thursatru"?

I have come across this previously a little while back, and wondered if there is actually any historical or real basis in such practice and view?

I have seen it called Rokkatru or Rokkrtru?

The Odin Brotherhood honors both Loki and Skadi who are Jotnar.

In the lore it says that some Jotnar intermarried with the Aesir and Vanir.

My opinion:

Logically: If we see the gods and goddesses as our Elder Kin, why would one honor his grandfather but not his great grandfather?

If you venerate Heimdall, keeping in mind that his mothers seem to have been Jotnar, why would you not venerate his mothers who Odin saw fit to procreate with?

Some people seem to be scared of the Jotnar. If you are scared, it probably is not a good idea to approach them. If you respect them, you may be a little better off. I have noticed that many kindreds have a rule that goes something like this: "We allow our members to venerate Loki, but only in private." I get a kick out of that.

brave man does not fear the wrath of gods."

I honor them all- despite honoring them in equal measure to Aesir and Vanir, many communities would refer to my spouse and I as "Rokkr".

I prefer the term "Indigenous European Polytheist", since Sweinodinsson correctly pointed out it is wise to honor all ancestors, I have discovered others raised in Odinist homes overwhelmingly share the same stance on the "even older" Gods as I do.
