Here is a quick tip for people who want to get a good ratio of people they follow to follow them back on Twitter: 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) Using Tweet Attacks, harvest users that mention the celebrity in their tweets (e.g. search for justinbieber) Again using TA, follow the harvested users. In my experience, around 50% will follow back instead of the normal 10% 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.
