    My girlfriend has been doing this method for a couple years, and I switched to it as well.


    Many of you just go on popular twitter/instagram accounts in your niche and follow copy their followers.


    Following people that talk about a certain keywork is common.


    The method I use is neither.


    In this example I will user twitter but this apply to instagram as well.




    First, find a popular and active account in your niche. I chose @Fitness:



    [​IMG]

    Now, find a RECENT tweet that has at least 100 retweets (in case of instagram, find a recent post that has many likes):


    [​IMG]

    Now, just follow everyone that retweeted that tweet:

    [​IMG]


    Note: It's WAY easier to follow them on the app (iOS app is better than Android app):


    [​IMG]

    (You can see around 100 people in the mobile app)


    Now just find more tweets and repeat.

    The good thing about this is that people will follow you back almost right away, as they were on twitter just moments ago to retweet.


    I have made a python script that does this in my 30 twitter accounts automatically using twitter's API. Then, it unfollows who hasn't follow them back and makes all the accounts send DMs (direct messages) to all their new followers thanking them and telling them to follow my money twitter account, AND my money instagram account.

    The good thing is, I get a lot of free instagram followers with no effort, and a lot of active twitter followers too.

    My main account stats:

    Combining all my accounts together I have over 250k active followers.

    I apologize if someone else shared this method already.

    I considered buying Instaliker, but I'm not sure if it can function as this method. Also, my python script runs all my 30 twitter accounts daily on a $5/month Digital Ocean VPS.

    Good tip but the real nugget was automating it in python.

    Nice share, but the problem with this is twitter only allows you to see 25 retweeters. Using api may let you see some more.
    But I don't know how to use api. :breakpc1:

    Hey,

    Use the Twitter app in you phone (either android or iOS). From the app you can see around 100 people:

    interesting method, it's great as you can target accounts that you know are active, unlike following random account that no matter how much you screen ( like to have pictures, nice bio and so on) you don't know how active they are. Nice of you to share, will try it and see if there's any difference

    Anything that's not automated (bots etc) is better.

    You're all welcome guys. I recommend you use an app called CROWDFIRE to send DMs to all your new followers.

    Was wondering if you have looked into applying this method to instagram? Instead of RTs you could use like & comments. I'm sure you've thought of it but have you tried it out?

    Works well with most sites. Whether it is retweeters on twitter, likes on instagram, reblogs on tumblr, likes/reposts on Soundcloud. You are actioning on the users who consume the media / posts / tweets / images which is always good as you know they are active and interacting on the site.

    I have some questions..

    1. How you avoid twitter api limit?
    2. How long do you wait before unfollow the people that not followed you?

    About the api, I want to know how many people your script follow per minute, because in the twitter api site they don't specify the limit of friendship/create call. Currently, my script only follow 1 people per minute lol haheuaehae.
