I've read that a good way to get Twitter followers is to follow users with high following/followers ratios. The idea is that these users will follow you back. I wrote a script that scrapes Twitter for user information. Right now, I scraped a few million users and it's still going. I followed 2000 users with high following/follower ratios, but only 300 followed me back (it's been 2 days). I didn't follow users with <500 followers or users following around 2000 people. I don't think I'm doing this right. If you had a database with every Twitter user and you had to follow 2000 users to maximize your followbacks, which users would you follow? P.S. I didn't specifically follow users with #teamfollowback in their bios because they tend to be low quality users. P.P.S. I might make the script available for download in the future, right now it's still a bit buggy.
