Hi guys, I've been reading countless threads about gaining twitter followers and have some questions. Most of the technqieues people here seem to be employing involve sites like twiends or twittfame. I have found that most of those accounts are either not real people, or they unfollow you after a short period of time. Does anyone have any techniques of getting actual people following you? I decided to combine methods and started using Twidium today and actually had some conversations with people, but this seems rather slow. I read that twitter allows 1,000 follows/day so I added 1,000 people with ratios favorable for a follow back, but have only gained about 160 today. Is that normal, or are there ways to improve the follows/day count? I thought this may be a good topic to build on. Since so many of these services are changing policies, or shutting down, actually using twitter and various tools to gain real followers may be the only way to do it.
