    Hi Guys

    Is there a tool that allows you to source / connect social media accounts in bulk.

    I have a scraped list of twitter URLs, and it would be hugely useful if I could find their FB and Linkedin details.

    I know the google chrome tool " connectifier-social-links " is able to do this as you view their profile, so it must technically be possible to automate this in bulk?

    Any advise would be greatly appreciated

    The way that I do it is to scrape the email addresses from Twitter, and then upload those lists into facebook and linked. Generally, if they're using an email address on Twitter, they're using the same one on FB or LinkedIn. So I go -> gather twitter IDs -> scrape info -> gain email addresses -> import list to other social media

    Is this what you mean?

    I was thinking about this solution, however from what I have read, scraping email addresses from twitter looks pretty dodgy. As I understand it, it works on the assumption that the twitter user publicly posed there email address at some point? Im worried that this ends up being a very small portion of users, and there is risk that you scrape random email accounts along the way (effectively diluting the focus of your target list). It wuld be useful to hear if anyone has tried this approach for targeted FB ads and if they found it to be a successful approach?

    I am able to scrape from anyone's list of followers (fb page, fb profiles, twitter followers, I can do instagram but barely focus on it, and linkedin is a different ballgame.... Facebook and Linkedin are the only two where their email address needs to be "public"). I wouldn't say twitter scraping is "dodgy"... it's more that the total yield can be small if you really want to target and get specific. I'm able to target only high quality twitter accounts, and scrape only good info.... but the extraction yields a very small percentage.... To be more clear: lets say there's a good twitter account with 100K followers. 50k are junk and bots, 50K are normal twitter users. I'd be able to extract about 5% email addresses of 50K twitter accounts... so it's not that its "dodgy" it's that EVERYTHING cannot be collected, but what is collected is solid and usable.

    connectifier-social-links + follow all in bulk seems like something that could be created. It'd definitely be too tough for me to do....but based on some of the google chrome tools already in existence, it seems like the follower/liker add ons should combine with connectifier-social-links
