    Twitter Automation Tools?

    Now that Twitter automation tools are banned, are you manually adding followers?

    Automating followers never made sense before and certainly makes none now. You should follow people who provide value, are engaging you, are of interest or need to have access to DMs. Beyond that what's the point? A follower only helps if they are interested enough to do something and just about no one relevant to that criteria is going to follow you just because you followed them.

    Adding 1000's of followers in the hope they may follow you back is a pointless activity. If your twitter feed is related to a business do you really think these people who 'follow back' are really going help your business grow?
