    In another thread someone said this:
    "Furthermore, the option to follow the Retweeters of a specific Tweet qould be gold. If you could follow all the Retweeters of the follow trains you would gain like crazy."

    I am a clueless Twitter person. Anybody care to explain what this is and how it works? I am thinking of integrating the feature in to my bot if I can figure out how to make it produce tangible results vis-a-vis Follower to Friends ratio.

    Follow train = a bunch of people that follow back. From my knowledge, but I may be mistaken.

    If an account like Mashable tweets something and it gets say.... 500 RT's and you can scrape all of the those people that RT'd and follow/fav their tweets/or @mention them.... this is gold as these are highly active accounts that aren't shy to share. And you also know what they are interested in.

    im sorry if this is OOT , but if an account being followed by 1000 accounts and it tweet and mention this 1000 accounts everyday and not report as spam, is this describes as violating the twitter rules or not ?

    Huh, nice idea. Added it to my bot. Pointing it at Mashable account to see what happens when I favourite the people who RT the mashable posts. Not sure I want to RT the RTs right now as I am on my personal account. I so need to set up a few test accounts to try out experiments on.

    With regard to the followtrain, okay, it is what I guessed at, it was just the phrasing that the person used I was not grasping.

    It is a private bot that I wrote for myself when TA3 ceased to work. It works for my needs, though the user interface is ugly as hell.

    I do, but I don't tend to share it out. You can PM me or email me.
