    Hello, I'm sure you've all heard this question a thousand times, and I've checked out a few bots that I've seen in forums on this site, but I just want to make sure I'm not missing something.

    What I need is a bot that is able to follow the users of a post. Say twitter for example. So if Barrack Obama (for example) tweeted 5 hours ago and within those 5 hours had 100k favourites and 50k retweets, is there a way I could load the URL of that tweet into a bot which could then follow those users that retweeted or favorited that tweet? And is there other bots that could do something similar to that for vine and instagram? Thanks :)

    I don't believe there is, but I know you can find bots that follow a user's list of followers. Those are, after all, the very same users who favorited and retweeted said user's tweet.

    Yeah you can't really scrape the followers of the tweet and follow them. But for sure there are bots to follow other people's followers.
