TexAu’s free Twitter auto follow bot is a simple and efficient Twitter automation with one purpose: To get your account to follow a list of Twitter profiles automatically.

Growing on Twitter is obviously more than mass auto-following random accounts; Yet, when properly used, a Twitter auto-follow bot is a good tool to have in your Twitter growth toolkit.

When is using a Twitter auto-follow bot relevant?

They are 2 keys to auto-following efficiently on Twitter:

  • Targeting. First, you need to pick your audience right. Make sure that they are really interested in what you’re saying. To find such followers, read the next section.
  • Content. We all know that “you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar”. In other words, make sure that you Tweet often and quality content for your targets. That way, when they’ll visit your profile, they are more likely to follow you back.

If you keep your auto follow under 200 profiles per day and keep creating real content, you growth will skyrocket.

Only auto-follow Twitter users that are in your niche

To respect the #1 rule of Twitter auto-follow, you need to find good prospects. They are a few ways to find them:

  • Steal your competitor’s followers: Where are your prospects? Following your competitors! Scrape your competitors followers, and auto-follow them.
  • Auto-follow likers and commenters: If there’s a good Tweet with a bunch of people liking or commenting that Tweet, they must be interested in the topic. Extract them all and auto-follow them. The probabilities they’ll follow you back are high.
  • Get your audience from another platform to find you on Twitter: Let’s say that you have a list of users on Facebook. Extract their names, search for them on Twitter, then auto-follow them.
  • Auto-follow users interacting with specific hashtags: If a hashtag is relevant to you, TexAu lets you extract all the Tweets related to it. Among the information extracted is the Tweet’s author profile URL. That’s yet another clever way to build your perfect audience.

Why would I use Google Sheets?

When you want to export multiple targets without having to change the #2 field every time, you can use a Google spreadsheet URL instead.
