    Hello all here at BHW!

    After using a few other iMacros Scripts on here to do some pretty cool things (and faster obviously) I decided I'd try my hand at this.

    I made a little Twitter auto-follow script that will follow people in your niche! Please let me know if you come across a problem, I used it to follow a total of 70 people in a row before making the thread, no repercussions so far, no daily follow limit met either. I added three separate random realistic wait timers to make it less likely to be caught.

    NOTE: This will unfollow people you have already followed so it is best used on new accounts. I couldn't figure out a means to stop this from happening.

    I'm excited about releasing something on BHW that will hopefully help a few people.

    iMacros Code:

    Code:
    VERSION BUILD=7601105 RECORDER=FX
    SET !ERRORIGNORE YES
    SET !VAR1 EVAL("var randomNumber=Math.floor(Math.random()*10 + 1); randomNumber;")
    SET !VAR2 EVAL("var randomNumber=Math.floor(Math.random()*2 + 1); randomNumber;")
    SET !VAR3 EVAL("var randomNumber=Math.floor(Math.random()*3 + 1); randomNumber;")
    Set !LOOP 9
    
    TAG POS={{!LOOP}} TYPE=IMG ATTR=SRC:https://twimg0-a.akamaihd.net/profile_images/*/*
    WAIT SECONDS={{!VAR2}}
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=BUTTON ATTR=TXT:Follow<SP>Following<SP>Unfollow<SP>Blocked<SP>Unblock<SP>Pen*
    WAIT SECONDS={{!VAR3}}
    TAG POS=9 TYPE=BUTTON ATTR=TXT:Close
    
    WAIT SECONDS={{!VAR1}}
    
    Instructions:

    1: Open Firefox Browser And Imacros.

    2: Copy and paste the above code and save it.

    3: Login to your Twitter account.

    4: Navigate to your niche's tag page by typing your keywords into the search bar on the top right and hitting enter.

    5: Use the page slider on the right in Firefox to scroll the page downwards, so more posts will load for that niche. Just keep doing this until you have a good number of posts present.

    6: Set your Max loop count to the desired amount + 9. The reason for this is I had to use a special variable that altars the Current loop count, this means that the very first time the script runs your Current will jump from 1 to 9 (so if you set Max of 10 or less then it will only run once).

    7: Press "Play (Loop)" and watch the script work for you!


    Hopefully this helps some of you folks out there! Thank you to JackSparrow making a few iMacros scripts and actually introducing me to iMacros (though inadvertently), I also copied the layout of this post from his iMacros threads with minor changes.

    Thanks for this script! Unfortunately, there seems to be a slight error (which can probably be fixed easily, but I'm a complete noob in terms of iMacros): When I start the script, it follows the first account at the top of the list, but then in the next iteration unfollows it again. This process is repeated over and over, meaning the script doesn't "jump" down to the next account. Would be very grateful if you could adjust the script, I've been looking for a something like this for quite some time now!

    Wow, that is pretty strange, are you sure you are doing a loop? Hitting "Play" by itself and then hitting "Play" again over and over would result in this, but typing in a number that is greater then 10 (remember to add 9 to the desired amount of people to attempt to follow) should work properly, it does on my end.

    If you are willing, you can PM me your search words so I can check specifically on the page you are talking about.

    Unfortunately I haven't posted on this board enough to PM you... But yes, I did set the script to "Loop" (different numbers, ranging from 50 to 400) and always had the same problem.

    Just to make sure I didn't misunderstand the instructions for navigating to the niche page: I typed my tags (e.g. "vogue" and "fashion") into the search bogs and then went to the "people" page of the results. On that page, I started the script.

    There lies your problem! :)

    Don't go to the people page at all, just type your keywords into the search box, let the page load, then run the script.

    Same problem then unfortunately. :( If I do as you say, the search result shows me tweets matching the keywords, right? But also, above it shows me "top people" - and when I start the script, it follows the first person and in the next step unfollows it again, back and forth from there on.

    :(

    Are you both on Firefox? It works fine with me even on both of the keywords you listed. :(

    Yes, I was using Firefox. I'm wondering if maybe Twitter is rolling out a new user interface that isn't available on all accounts yet (on which the script doesn't work)..?

    I would use this with caution. Twitter is cracking down HARD this year. Yesterday I manually followed 40 people within 20 minutes. My account got locked and I got a warning.
