    There really are not a lot of ways to attract followers consistently in large numbers without following people. (unless you're some type of celebrity)

    Some recommend the method of following and unfollowing the top 30 Tweeple...but that has it's own share of risk.

    I think that would make more sense if you had a series of 20 accounts and a script that would rotate through your ids and follow, then unfollow those top 30 periodically throughout the day. That way you would only be doing this a few times per day per account but you would still get the same overall benefit of the technique. If you had auto-follow on then you would be mixing in plenty of other people that you'd be following so it wouldn't look like you werwe only following/unfollowing the top 30 alone.

    Alas, such a piece of software does not exist that I know of.

    How about actually building up your reputation in the field so that people will follow you naturally? Sure, it takes time and effort but you get better followers too... rather than the ones that will just auto-follow you if you follow them.

    Also Twitter tools that make each user auto-follow the designer are something I've seen.. user signs in using Oauth, it sends out a message using the person's account and auto-followers the creator of the tool. I know Fast140 was a tool that did something like that. Sneaky way to get many followers quick.

    Best bet is to target followers in your niche.
    I added random people to my account when i first started, i have over 15k followers now, organically increasing by 300-400 a day. I would say this would increase organically by about 800 if they weren't random people added. So trying to get as many people to follow you asap may not be the best way to do it.

    Follow and get followed is the best way!

    Apart from that im not sure, maybe buying followers is ur only option.

    I'm writing a separate thread entitled, "Attracting Followers With the Twitter Top List...On Steroids!"

    It will be an enhancement of a technique already outlined in another thread here (or on another forum).
