    Hi guys, I'm running FollowLiker Twitter edition and got a little head scratcher. Apologies if this has been discussed before somewhere deep in a thread, just couldn't find it.

    I'm scraping relevant users off large accounts and screening out inactives, i.e. low follower and no recent tweets accounts. The niche is online-entertainment so I'm simply targetting followers of accounts spewing out jokes, vines and whatever mindless baloney that gets retweeted all over the place. When I then follow somebody, I'm currently giving them 3 days to follow back before I unfollow. Thinking about bringing that number down to 2 so I can follow more. Has anybody fiddled around with different settings and found the opto-number? I'm not very experienced in this so any kind of guess work or speculations from you veterans also greatly appreciated!

    Just reduce the number to two for 5 days and track your follower rate. Do you see any growth ? Any change ? For better or for worse? no one can tell with any certainty how to do this. In your particular niche you will have to test yourself and figure it out on your own.

    Just 2-5 days may not be enough to unfollow. Because I found many people delay to track followers, some wait for 1 week while some 2weeks.
    For me, I use to unfollow after 2 weeks.

    Well, I have bought the bot 2 days ago, so curently I am in the testing phase as well. I have desided to unfollow them after 3 days, in order to grow my accounts faster. I wont blacklist them, so maybe I will be albe to follow the same poeple in the future when my accounts will be bigger.

    Good luck.
