    can i ask why do you need a macro, when you can use tweetattacks free version for this purposes (following/unfollowing)

    anyways, here's a macro which follows twitter IDs from .csv (when i last checked it, it worked):
    HTML:
    TAB T=1
    TAB CLOSEALLOTHERS
    SET !ERRORIGNORE YES
    SET !DATASOURCE C:\twitterIDs.csv
    SET !DATASOURCE_COLUMNS 2
    SET !LOOP 1
    SET !DATASOURCE_LINE {{!LOOP}}
    URL GOTO={{!COL1}}
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=STRONG ATTR=TXT:Follow
    WAIT SECONDS={{!COL2}}
    login to your twitter account manually, and type a number of your choice = how many followers you want to follow - into the Repeat Macro Max bracket, hit Play (Loop) and that's it

    how do you scrape twitter IDs? for example using the following site:
    Code:
    http://friendorfollow.com/
    it lets you save the list of followings, fans (=followers you don't follow) and friends (=followers you follow) of any account (not just yours, any existing twitter handle) as a .csv file
    you need to clean the list (with a tool like notepad++) to be left with the handles only

    1. type the twitter handle of your choice
    2. wait a bit until the site loads the lists (meanwhile enjoy the bunny petting pic lol)
    3. select a list (followings/fans/friends)
    4. hit 'Export CSV'
    5. clean the list

    if you want to use this scraped list with the macro above, you will need the IDs in this format: http://twitter.com/twitterID, one per line, and you'll also need to have the .csv file in the following location: C:\twitterIDs.csv (if you saved the .csv on other name, extension/to other place, you need to modify the macro)

    for (mass) unfollowing you can use:
    Code:
    http://manageflitter.com/
    but i really don't see the point why complicate the process, when you can do all this with tweetattacks as well

    I think this is free method. Because tweetattacks is paid software...
