    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.

    Try adding -http to filter out tweets with links, that will get rid of most of the spammers.

    if you want to filter out German people you can try to filter out words with special characters they use: "ß", "ä", "ö", "ü", if they're tweeting they're most likely using these characters and or you can try to filter out their most frequent words: "der", "und" etc.
    Code:
    http://german.about.com/library/blwfreq01.htm
    i know the result won't be perfect, but it's more than what you have now

    you can also filter out #teamfollowback #tfb #f4f and similar hashtags to get rid of people who most likely don't really interested in tweets in general and their primary target is gaining more followers, they're not necessarily spammers, but they're not worth to follow if you want to build a targeted follower base

    I want to filter out all people who are not german. So vice versa to what you understood.

    But including umlauts isn't that useful. Isn't there a service I can send a phrase to and it tells me it's language?

    Actually I should send a lot of previous messages to it, to avoid the situation when there's an occasional english text from a german writer.

    Speaking of which, is there a way to detect a user according to hisher writing profile? So some script detecting whether the user is writing a lot of xd and ^^ and shit like that to determine his/her grade of maturity
