    This is a great way to earn some starter cash, but don't expect millions.
    A while back i was being followed by someone from a tv show i like and that twitter profile tweeted a quote from my favorite tv show every hour so i decided to follow that person. And every hour i read a quote from my favorite tv show! It got me thinking and decided to make my own twitter quotes 'bot' 21000 followers later (4 bots) i'm making some decent cash.

    So i'll explain my method because it's hard to saturate anyway.

    First of all you need to find a tv show that a lot of people watch (obviously) lets take an older show called 'sex and the city' (just an example). Now that show has 4 main characters that say 'funny' things.

    Step 1) Research! You need to find one character, and about 50 quotes. Most shows have fansites and most fansites have quotes!

    Step 2) Make the twitter profile. As the avatar choose a picture of the character you're quoting and dress the twitter up nicely (a fun bio for example).

    Step 3) Go to twittbot.net which is a free quotes tweeting service, and what you can do best is open notepad and paste all your quotes underneath eachother and add them all at once.

    Step 4) Now that all your quotes are added go to 'setting'
    Now if you have 50 or less i suggest 60 minutes and if you have more than 50 you can pick 30 minutes (its up to you).

    Step 5) The harder part is to find followers, i don't suggest buying followers because its pointless. Just look up your tv show in the twitter search and follow some people. And they will get an email saying theyre not followed by their favorite tv show character and they will follow and retweet.

    Step 6) Now the waiting game starts, you can make as many profiles as you like (for more than 10 i suggest proxies). Just follow some people every day and let it happen but make sure you find targetted followers - spammy followers it not going to do any good. Neither are people like #teamfollowback or whatever.

    Step 7) Sign up to some add networks that i listed below and start earning money. Now 200 followers wouldn't mean that much but 200 followers that are interested in your quotes and retweeting your quotes (to their friends!) will mean a lot!

    Tips

    - Choose a tv show you like it makes it easier to find followers and it makes it overal more fun!

    - Choose a cancelled show! People will feel nostalgic about their favorite show and would love to read about it!

    - Don't start sending ads right away, its pointless and will scare people off.

    Ad networks

    - Mylikes.com is great for this
    - Twtmob is great is you have a bigger crowd
    - Sponsoredtweets.com is okay but their tweets are quite spammy
    - You can use amazon affiliates to promote the dvd of the show.

    Cool idea. Back in the days I was doing something similar. I set up account which twitted jokes every hour. It was hard to get quality followers so I gave up.

    Or my sense of humour suck.

    I've tried this, and people would really retweet your tweets.

    Actually me and someone on IRC did a test on this. He made a new TV show quotes profile and i retweeted him a couple of times and every retweet got him like 500-700 new followers! So it worked really well.

    Actually since this thread i gained many new followers, i think it's about 1000 a week. I remember one night i gained like 2000 new followers because some celebrity followed me.

    One time won the daily contest on my ad network (get the most clicks) and that gave me $100 so that was really cool.

    So yeah this method does work you just have to take it slowly and don't rush it (see it as a side project).
