First post I've been lurking for a long ass time and finally decided to post something worthwhile. Here's my simple twitter script to grab your followers' followers. It has limits to try to keep you from getting banned, but make sure you only use it once per hour (or even per day) just to be safe. Code: hxxp://nukeit.org/stupid-bash-scripts-twitter-follower-grabber/ And here's my stupid autofollow script. The above script generates lists of 1k users which you can plug into this one to follow 1k new people per day. It has a timer so you won't hit the hourly limits. Code: #!/bin/bash FILE="newfollows" exec < $FILE while read LINE do #twitter follow $LINE -e email -p password twitter follow $LINE -e email -p password sleep 37 done I use Python Twitter Tools because it has nice features and does a lot of hard work that I could have spent hours writing in bash. Code: hxxp://mike.verdone.ca/twitter/ To auto tweet something, use something like this. I dunno... I use hootsuite Code: #!/bin/bash FILE="tweets" exec < $FILE while read LINE do twitter set $LINE -e email -p password sleep 3600 ## seconds done Tips :idea: Create multiple directories and copy the script into each one. Add you different account info to each script and start them. I've only tested it with two accounts at the same time, but any more and you might get :banned:. Add your 1k per day and wait 48h. Use something like refollow to remove those who don't follow you back. Repeat as long as you want The follow grabber tries to keep track of your followers and uses that list to keep your lists clean. This functionality might break or take forever if you already have a shit ton of followers. I got block banned a while back, some asshat blocked me :bawling: and I think I tried to follow him too many times and the bot got me. I had it reversed immediately, but its something you might watch out for. I don't know of any way off hand to find out who is blocking you, but if you have a way or a list, you need to make sure your new collections don't contain those who are blocking you. Disclaimer: :thefinger Don't come bitching to me if you can't get it to work, you do it wrong, or twitter changes something and you get banned. This will work on *nix, msys, and most shared boxes with ssh.
