    I was trying out the free version of tweet attacks.

    I wanted to follow another users followers. The user is new to twitter and is being hyped up by multiple major names in my industry. I know the followers following him are new and active users following for one thing and one thing only.

    He currently has 430 followers, all from the past day or two.

    When I go to follow his users in the free version of tweet attacks, it picked 112 the 1st time, and followed 8. The next time it picked 87 people and followed 0.

    Will this happen with TA Pro? If I buy tweet attckas pro will it follow all 430 and stop when I hit my limit?

    This program seems useless if it doesnt do the job. I may be better off just clicking follow on each person.

    It depends what settings you have turned on. There are options on the follow tab that say "Don't follow other users without profile pictures"
    "Don't follow users who's last tweet contains a link"
    etc.

    So a lot of those users probably hit those filters. Turn them off if you want to follow more.

    free version works flawlessly just as the paid versions, the problem is on your end

    edit: i figured it out -> under 'Settings' tab tick the 'Use maximum limit' under 'Common Settings', because it is set to follow a random number of people between 50-150 by default
    but it's still not explaining why TA followed only 8 people then zero, haven't you followed them before by chance?
    another problem can be your proxy (if there's any) or your internet connection
    these functions are not available in the free version, the only available function is 'Don't follow users that followed before' under 'Auto Follow Settings'

    It depends on a lot of things such as the settings you are using. Another thing that could be the problem is your internet connection. I was having a lot of problems with TA on my crappy connection until I got a VPS.

    Cheers

    Well I am a FUC*ING idiot. I was going follow other users following thinking that it meant I was following other users following "name in question" not the other way around. So I was constantly following the 55 people he was following not ones following him. Switched it around and I am currently following up to 445 people.

    God am I dumb. Free TA works well.
