    I'm trying a new method for gaining Twitter followers and wanted to get some opinions/suggestions/alternatives. I have several hundred fake accounts that I had previously used in a bot. I would have the bot tweet, follow peoples followers, then RT my main accounts for exposure. My goal is to continue to use this method, however the bot caused me a lot of issues from banned accounts to needing to be by the computer all day to monitor. Anyway, I am looking to maintain my same method but try and do it using strictly web based programs out there at little to no cost

    My currently plan uses 3 free programs, which I will explain below. To do this, I will have to go into each fake account and manually set up, but I can do a few a day and I am in no hurry for all my fake accounts set up immediately.

    Programs Used

    • GrabInBox - Apparently this web application will let you upload a text file of tweets and schedule them throughout the day. I have about a few thousand tweets in a text file I can upload. This will show that someone is tweeting, so the account seems less fake looking. I'm still waiting on results to see if this app is working good.
    • Roundteam - Firstly, I have each fake account create a twitter list of random but popular accounts, which will also include my main account. Then using RoundTeam, I will have the fake account auto-RT tweets from the respective list. The reason why I include other accounts, is that if you just have the account RT yours you can get banned.
    • Tweepi - This is where I am going to struggle, because this is a great software but I must do it manually each time. Tweepi allows you to unfollow people that aren't following you, and most importantly follow people in various lists or followers of others. It doesn't have an auto feature however, so it won't be practical to do it manually if I set up too many fake accounts.

    Anyway, those are the 3 programs I have discovered so far. Here are a few questions I have if anyone can help:
    • Has anyone used GrabInBox, and is there a better alternative to allow you to upload a text file of tweets that will be randomly tweeted?
    • Is there a different method for auto-RT other than RoundTeam? I tried the IFTT using a script but that doesn't use the native tweet function?
    • Any advice on not getting your account banned on RoundTeam?
    • Is there more of an automated method (online based) for auto-follow, auto-unfollow other than manually using Tweepi?

    Anyway, that is my method and I welcome any thoughts to make the process easier and more automated.

    Also: I'm not going to private or Skype you, so don't bother asking only so you can sell me something. if you have advice, share it for the benefit of the forum.

    My advice is that free programs usually will annoy you. They do this on purpose so you pay to unlock the main features. Don't cheap out on your endeavors.

    Well Best part is to go with a Automated Software I use TwtDominator,
    and managing about 300+ accounts with 300k+ followers in total.

    > I can easily Upload a List of Tweets to get Tweeted, Also I can schedule them.
    > It also a feature of AutoRT but you can only set 1 username not like what you said in which you are adding multiple Popular accounts
    > For Unfollowing, I can easily Unfollow users who are not following me back in X days, or can unfollow all. (Currently this is creating a little issue, talked with Support they said its on the go)

    Besides this, it has many more features.
    It also has a trial so if you wish to get a copy of it.

    P.S.. Use Proxies too with your accounts, If you are using then its Okay as I haven't got Suspension yet Unless I do a lot of Spamming

    find 5+ instagram users in your niche that post pictures on a regular basis. then setup an ifttt recipe so when those users post an instagram, then it will auto post to your twitter. be sure to pull the description also to get any hashtags they might use
