How to get more of
what you want from Tweetadder.
The new Tweetadder allows you to do even more than the old
one, and with the new Twitter page currently being rolled
out, automation will be taken a step further. You will be
able to link directly to your favourite social networks, Facebook,
Utube, Myspace etc, without leaving your Twitter page.
I have explained in the previous articles Be
a Guest Blogger, How
to Use Twitter Effectively, Tweetadder
and Twitter, and Beat
Twitter limits. If you have followed the guidelines you
should now have a good following on Twitter, as well as the
important number who have followed you from your blog, or
Twitter links on your facebook or website that you haven’t
followed back. The new version of Tweetadder allows you to
set everything to run automatically, including searching for
new prospects to target when you have run out of “id’s”
Even though you have set everything to work on Automatic,
you will still need to make tweeks to Tweetadder on a daily
or weekly basis, if you want to gain targeted followers fast.
To get the results you want requires a little bit of work.
1. The first thing you need to
do is create a spreadsheet in order to gather more detailed
stats. On your spreadsheet the headings should be: Date
[Date you started with current follows list]: Number
of Followers [your current number of followers]: Following
[the user name you are generating your follows from, and two
or three words describing their BIO] : Follows
downloaded [the number of follows you have downloaded]:
Number of follows sent [daily,
weekly]: Number of Followers gained
[This can be on a daily basis, weekly, or when the number
of follows you have downloaded is exhausted]. And
lastly the percentage of followers gained from the number
of follows sent out.[You can do this automatically
using your spreadsheet formulae]
2. The actual number of followers
you get on a daily basis is not important statistically. When
you have 50,000 followers you will get more followers on a
daily basis that when you only had 5,000 followers. The
percentage method enables you to keep a more accurate check
on your progress and your efficiency.
You can please yourself how often you enter data into your
spreadsheet, I find weekly is easiest for me. At least once
a month. or whenever you have exhausted your download of follows
analyse your stats. At the very least
you should take an average of your percentage of followers
gained column. After 5 or 6 weeks, you can go back
and download the followers of a user who you got a high percentage
of followers from. [The user will have acquired more followers
in that time] and at the same time you can target the followers
that user follows.
More Tweaks For Tweetadder.
Because you have used 2 or 3 words to describe a user’s
bio, you can now use those words in Tweetadder to find other
• Before we go any further,
you should be aware of certain Twitter and Tweetadder rules.
• Once you have passed the
2,000 followers figure, Twitter limit the number of follows
you can post in a 24hr period. The ratio Twitter uses is 1.1
to 1, on a figure of 2,000 followers, the highest number for
following is 2,200 [or 10% more than are following you ]
• The screen shot from the
Tweetadder account I suggested you checked on to see how it
progressed is at the bottom of the page. It shows that there
are 2,237 to follow back [as at 25 Sept 2010].It is reasonable
to assume that this number will continue to increase at the
same percentage rate for some time. With 13,096 followers the
most I can have following is 14,406. This means I can send out
1,310 +2,237 a total of 3,547 follows.
• Twitter rules limit me
to sending out 999 follows a day. This means I must alter the
number of days before I can unfollow to 5 days in Tweetadder
in order to take full advantage of the position, and keep altering
that number of days at least once a week. The greater the number
of days the follows are out, the higher the number of followers.
• If all you want to do is
to continually increase the number of followers, this is fine.
The problem now is that twitter allows you to send up to 20
direct messages a day, with a total of 999 messages sent per
day. Tweetadder set the time limit at 1 to 3 minutes between
sending DMs, to make it look more natural. With a maximum of
20 to 60 DMs per hour and your computer on 24 hours a day, with
Tweetadder running continually, it is going to take 2 weeks
to send one message to each follower. Not the best of service
for your followers.
