    I'm using hummingbird to follow people, and
    I noticed majority of people I follow are marketers,
    I used keywords such as "make money".

    I got so pissed off, marketers trying to sell marketers. haha
    What is the way to get real people, non IMers?
    Thanks

    Here's what I do to eliminate most marketer's tweets using any keyword phrase. When you type your keyword phrase on the twitter search append this "-http -www" (without quotes) either before or after the keyword phrase you use. It works most of the time for me. Hope this helps.

    Besides that, I also found a thing called cleantweets which I use to weed out all people who are repetitive... it´s not the marketers that are the problem, it´s the people who just use bots to spam twitter. Their bot is not going to click on your link, lol.

    I use the cross follow option at Buzzom, just enter a users name and then it will list the people they follow and you can choose to follow all or just some of them.
