Hey! I do automatic following using a script. It receives what search.twitter.com is outputting. Unfortunately only a little amount of people are useful, I add a lot of useless bots. Which search terms do you recommend to avoid useless spammers? My approach so far: TrueTwit Searches like http://search.twitter.com/search?q=searchterm++-buy+-sell+-free+-filter:links+-include:retweets Better but still a lot of useless people. BTW: I filter german tweets, too, ie those with de in language but I found that most people don't enter the language information. So how do I not filter out those who do speak german but don't have the entry de.
