Update: Twitter has shut down the auto-follow feature. Now, there is only one tool which will let you see the list of new followers who follow you. You can then manually follow them back. SocialOomph offers a manual vetting option which is going to be your best bet. What you can do now is utilize the “Auto DM” feature to send automated direct message to your new followers. This is good for creating first connections and also for marketing. This feature is available on SocialOomph. Here are a few other Twitter tools which will send automated DMs.
Twitter is a social networking site for quickly spreading your words to your followers. Like any other social media site, people want you to follow them.
For many users who like to automate their Twitter profile, it’s a good practice to use the features of Twitter auto-following offered by many online Twitter web apps. In short, these Twitter web tools follow any Twitter followers who follow you.
There are downsides of this, however, as there are an unlimited amount of automated bots which start following you based on your tweets, hashtags, and keywords. Following Twitter bots doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me…
But at the end of the day, it all depends upon your marketing strategy and how you want to grow your profile.
We have already shared an article on unfollowing non-follower Twitter users, which will let you quickly unfollow those profiles which are not following you back.
There are Twitter tools, like SocialOomph and Geeky Reciprocate. which also provide features to follow your followers on Twitter, but as I have already covered those tools in our previous articles about Twitter, I will not list them here.
Instead, I am going to share a few other useful Twitter tools which will help you to follow Twitter users who are currently following you on Twitter.
