    Here is a quick tip for people who want to get a good ratio of people they follow to follow them back on Twitter:

    1. Change the profile of your account (name, pic, description, etc...) to be a VERY popular celebrity "fan club" (Two good ones are fan clubs of Justin Bieber or Lady Gaga)
    2. Using Tweet Attacks, harvest users that mention the celebrity in their tweets (e.g. search for justinbieber)
    3. Again using TA, follow the harvested users. In my experience, around 50% will follow back instead of the normal 10%
    4. Once the account has aged to your desired amount or accumulated enough followers, you can switch the profile info back to something else if you do not want it to be a "celebrity fan club" for your marketing purposes

    Although TA is convenient, you can use another bot or your own methods to accomplish the above.

    It also helps to tweet trivia/facts/lyrics of celebrity to make the account look more authentic. You can easily harvest such info from the internet to use as tweet content.

    This method has helped me accumulate a lot of real followers fast. Hopefully it can work for you to.

    Do you think the followers will still follow you when you change your profile info to something else?

    I'm not the OP but I would say yes because they would be none the wiser. Many have tons of people they follow and with no notification of the change of name they will not notice it

    Most people are never going to notice a profile change on Twitter.

    In my experience, no they do not unfollow you, nor realize a profile change has taken place.

    There is an option in the table on the right side, where you have listed all task, you can add parameters to specify what exactly want to do I guess. I am looking the list with commands to put there selected.

    I have used "Celebrity_Fan" as username and receive several followers everyday without following anyone. Some accounts are building up follower base nicely using this method.

    Don't you think that those 40% more people that follow you back are bots as long as celebrity fans (or as they look) are mostly bots and they already have auto-follow-back function on, that's why you get more followers then by following other search keywords.
    Thanks for info, though
