Did you know that 25% of the people you follow will follow you back? This is a psychological trick used by so many growth hackers to grow very fast their social accounts like Twitter or Instagram.

How to get 10 000 followers in 1 month? Follow 40 000 people and you will get 25% of them following you back (10K). Easy, isn’t it? Not so easy as Twitter (or Instagram) will not let you follow thousands of people every day. There are daily limits on these platforms. I recommend you to read “The Future of Social Networks Automation” in order to understand better how to automate social networks.

Also, you need to know that there is a limit to the number of people you can follow. On Twitter. Obviously it is around 1819 accounts. So that means you will have sometimes to unfollow some Twitter accounts in order to continue to grow your number of followers with this technic.

Now that you know the trick, you understand you will go faster if you can automate this task of following people. It exists many software able to auto-follow people on Twitter. In this article, I will introduce you to the most sophisticated and the most undetectable robot in the world: PhoneBot.

Before we see how to mass auto-follow Twitter accounts with PhoneBot, you need to know who will you follow? If you sell Yoga classes, It is useless to follow people interested in Computers IT stuff. Your goal is to grow your Twitter account of people corresponding to your buyer persona. Why would you get 10 000 followers passionated of Military Weapons if your niche is about plants!?

So the next question is where to find potential clients interested in your niche? You can find these people by simply clicking on the list of followers of influencers or competitors. If your product is an SEO SAAS software, you could be interested in the followers of Neil Patel. If you start up a new Fast Food restaurant franchise, you could follow the followers of Mac Donald, Kind Burger, and Quick. 

Now that you get the strategy and the theory for using our twitter auto follow tool, let’s do the practice.

1. Prepare a list of Twitter accounts of influencers and/or Competitors

Open Twitter and make a search by keywords or hashtags and filter by “people” in order to display a list of influencers or competitors.

The problem with this method is you don’t see the numbers of followers of these accounts shown in the results list. So you will have to open each account and check if they have big list of followers.

To go faster in this process, I recommend you to use tools like Talkwalker or Buzzsumo. They will provide you a list of influencers based on specific keywords you will type in their tool.

Then you need to go to their Twitter account and copy-paste their username in a text or spreadsheet document.  The twitter account is the account with @ shown under the picture of the twitter account on the profile page.

PAY ATTENTION! :  You have to remove the ”@” when you will paste it in your PhoneBot configuration page.

As a result, you should have a list of a few Twitter accounts (without the “@”) in a text file (use notepad) corresponding to the influencers of your niche or your direct competitors. We will copy-paste this list in the configuration form of your PhoneBot.

2. Configure PhoneBot for Twitter Auto Follow feature
