    Hi Guys,

    I was going to post this in the Social Networking part of the forum, but I think it is more apt to post it in the blogging section....

    Basically I use the twitme plugin in wordpress to post to my twitter account a new tweet everytime I post a new blogpost.

    Although I have added a lot of friends so that the new posts get a wide audience, is there a way to find targeted friends to add on twitter? e.g. I have made an autoblog on personal injury but how can I find friends to add on twitter who are targetted to personal injury law?

    Thanks!

    Usually on social networking sites you can easily target based on age and sex. (Eg. Targeting old men for Viagra)

    I don't know if personal injury can be targeted through age and sex. Also, I'm not familiar with twitter but on facebook you can target by adding people from certain groups. (Eg. Adding everybody from a lawyer related group or something, or even a law school)

    Hi - Thanks Senecapharm - but the thing is that there is no way (that I know of) to find targetted twitter friends like there is on facebook.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    There's a twitter friend adder here for sale on the forum that will allow you to find twitter friends based off of a keyword. Is that what you are looking for?

    - Use the search funktion on Twitter
    - Look on someones Twitter Account, who has your niche, and Follow his friends

    Yes. You are in the right way. Thanks to share this info here. :D

    The latest update also allows you to search friends by a username, first or last name. :cool:
