    Yesterday I decided to start learning Node.Js, which is like Javascript for a server, and you cand build server side apps. After researching a little bit, I started making my own twitter bot, is just a demo app with three modules, one for following someones followers, one for retweeting and the last one for upload tweets from a list at a given interval.

    This bot makes my account more automatic, and I don't have to log into my twitter account every single minute to update. I'm in the gaming niche, and yesterday I get around 200 new followers using this bot. Awesome right? This morning i build the tweet and retweet module and is working fine now.

    I'm planning on doing a graphical interface for it and releasing it for free as a website, where you can log into your twitter account and get all the features! What do you think?

    Seems good, keep going!
    If you want to create a website for the bot, you can make your bot web-based like a panel.

    Wow, I have just checekd my traffic sources on google analytics, yesterday I get 285 views where the 43.5% of it came from twitter and I'm updating my twitter account just with my bot. In the graphic below, the referral views came from promotion that I did in some game blogs and game related forums last week, but my social traffic is growing as hell!
    awesome, right?

    Edit: Without using my bot, social views were just 7.35% of my traffic, so I increase it from 7.3% -----> 43.5%

    All my followers are targetted on the Gaming niche, that's why when I publish something related to it I get lots of views. My website is going to be my personal project (as well as making html5 games), so at first is only going to support my account and no proxies, later on I'll build something better and with multiple account support.
