    This is probably something basic but let's say someone has 1,000 people following her,
    you know there active followers - is there any programme/website to follow all them 1,000 people
    without having to manually click, if so please do share the programme or website or any methods

    have a wonderful new year

    Sublime Twitter Bot worked for me.. It can scrape followers for you. As far as only the active ones, I'm not sure how you would go about doing that unless there is a bot that can check the date of the last tweets/favorites/retweets.

    Not 100% active of course but there are a few accounts I know off that have active following, thats why I wanted a simple programme that allows me to mass follow - in hope for a follow back.

    Thanks for your input much appreciated mate =)

    No problem! If you get Sublime, just go to scrape users followers, and it will generate a .txt file for you. Once it does that, load your personal account in the follow user panel, and then load the .txt file of all the followers. It's pretty simple, and I believe sublime has a few video tutorials to help.

    What's the chances of getting banned with this? just using 1 account only. Your last post was very helpful mate where can I get the official download link for this =)

    I wouldn't follow more than 50 an hour/more than 900 a day... but the chances of getting banned are always impossible to guess at. If your account is older and it has a lot of real followers already, the chances are much lower. The program itself will not get you banned, what the program does could if you abuse it.

    If you check the search box, there might be a download available on BHW, but I think I used Google to find my version.

    hey mate, my account has 40,000 real followers atm - following around 30% of them back apparently I look like a celeb which went viral and I got a good following =)

    I've recently went on a mass following, 1500+ people at once nothing has happened to my account it simply didn't allow me to follow once I hit the limit.

    Another question if you don't mind answering it - say if a Twitter account has like 50K followers is the software smart enough to stop once its done 1,000 or so? might be a dumb question I'm new to this stuff thanks again mate

    Good question, yes it is smart enough. You can tell it how many to scrape before you start.
    The program uses proxies as well, so your IP doesn't get banned. It also can create accounts for you and mass edit profiles. I haven't used anything else, but I think it's pretty good.

    Tweetadder is a good program. It's still working and is actively worked on so that your subscription should go a long way. I paid like 55 bucks at one time (no recurring payments) and it does all of this stuff
