    Hi All-

    I have recently been playing around mroe and more with iMacros and automation. However, I am pretty new to automation software.

    So I got thinking that would like to create a sort of mass friend adder for twitter. Yes I know there are solutions where I can pay for software to do this like livelybrowsers and a few others here. However, I kind of like to do things for free, build it myself and learn how to do things. That way I can also take it and use the same concepts and learning on another site like facebook or what not.

    So I am trying to create a friend adder using iMacros. I have a .csv file already set up. You can simply enter the user name of someone who has a pretty big following. Then iMacros will go to twitter.com ask you to login. It then goes to the persons page with all of the followers and will load each of the pages that list his or her followers. That is all working well.

    Here is the problem. I only need to program it to click on the "follow" link under each users picture. For some reason I have tried both the xy click and the html code click and neither seems to get picked up. It is not recognizing the links. I think twitter is using some kind of javascript or other programing language for that button and therein lies the problem.

    Anyway I know there are a ton of other people out there with a lot of automation and imacros expertise. If someone can help me solve the problem and figure out how to get hte click I would return the favor by sending them the twitter freind adder imacro once I finish creating it. I would also be happy to give back tot he community here and will post it here.

    Any help?

    Thanks
    Niches

    It would be much easier to use a script to add friends there is an API for Twitter that allows you to add friends, add tweets, send messages etc.

    smart, but not smart enough :p

    you need to pay the fees of BST if you want to sell something here or share it for free and don't say it's not your site/product, you have a youtube account under the same username promoting the scripts...

    this kind of help is not allowed here, that's why your post got removed
    if you want to help, do it for free or if you don't want to do it for free (which is totally acceptable of course), then pay the fees of the BST section and/or buy jr vip and you can have a link in your sig, it's simple as that ;)
