I bought Tweet Adder around one and a half year ago but only start using it 6 months ago. Why? Firstly, I didn’t really like Twitter and I spend a lot more time on Facebook mainly because the limitation of no of characters in Twitter.
On the other end, I realize that it is a huge potential to generate lots of traffic from Twitter without putting in too much effort, thanks to the automation of Tweet Adder. So, I decided to give it a try since there isn’t much to do on my end but to open Tweet Adder and let it run after setting up the automation. Here, I just want to highlight how I use TweetAdder and a few cool features that make it an outstanding Twitter automation tool.
Tweet Adder Overview

Why Tweet Adder?
Twitter has imposed a limit of 2,000 on the number of following that you can have initially. That means that when you follow 2,000 people, you will be restricted unless your followers hit around 1,800-1,900. Subsequently, the limit of the number of following is around 10% of the number of your followers.
If you are not a celebrity or well known person like politician, best seller authors, etc…it is hard to build up a huge followers. So, one of the easiest ways is to follow as many people in your niche and around 1/3 of them will follow you back after they find out more from you. So, this is the easy way to build up followers.
However, as I mentioned approximately 30% of your following will follow you back and become your follower. So, it is essential for you to unfollow the people that are not following you so that you can follow more people to gain more followers. If you do this manually, it will be very time consuming and tedious. This is where Tweet Adder come in.
Tweet Adder Review
Tweet Adder will help you to automate the tasks like follow, unfollow and schedule the tweets. I really love the automation part for follow and unfollow part because this saves us a lot of time to manage our twitter accounts.
Before we automate the following process, we will need to find out the people that we want to follow. One of the best and easiest way is to target the followers of big name / guru in your niche. This saves you a lot of hard work to find out the people that are in your niche. For example, I can target Problogger, John Chow, etc…for my Twitter account since I am into blogging and make money online niche and they have a lot of the followers.
So, we can just use Search users to follow > Followers of the user and key in the big name that we are interested and let Tweet Adder to the heavy job to generate a list of the followers for us to follow.
Subsequently, we just turn on the automation to follow users. I set the maximum follows to send = 10% of my current followers, with a time delay of between 0-3 minutes. Once your followers grow, I will just adjust the number of the maximum follows to send. The other part which we need to pay attention to is the unfollow part.
Due to the restriction of Twitter, we will need to unfollow the users that are not interested in our business / ourselves so that we only interact with the people that are interested in us and build up more followers.
I turn the automation on to unfollow any non-reciprocal follows, which means that we remove the people that are not following us back. I set the Maximum unfollow to send = 9% of my current followers, with a time delay of between 0-3 minutes. In addition, I set 3 days for waiting before the automation kick in to unfollow users. This should be enough for people that are active in Twitter to consider if they would like to follow you back.
Once the automation is set, all I need to do is to open up Tweet Adder daily and close it before I go to bed. This is very simple and straight forward.
This is another important feature that I use in Tweet Adder. It allows you to import your tweet list and schedule the posting time. I just write up for the tweets for some of my blog posts that I think are important and helpful. Once it is set, Tweet Adder will post the tweets as scheduled.
This is generally how I automate the twitter marketing process using Tweet Adder. Following, unfollowing and tweeting are being taken care of. However, the other thing I still do manually is to login and check my Twitter account daily for 5-10 minutes.
This is the maintenance for twitter marketing. Though everything has been automated via Tweet Adder, we need to remember that Twitter is still a social network, which require interaction.
So, all I do is to login to my Twitter account. Under Connect > Mentions, and check out if there is anyone interact with me, either retweet my post, chat with me, etc…Then I will interact with them by making the conversation more meaningful and interesting. Also, I will check out some tweets by others and retweet a few that I like.
This is the only social part that I do for maintenance for twitter marketing.
I have also recorded a video below so that you can see how Tweet Adder works:
Does Twitter Marketing Work?
Of course it does. Apart from having quality content to attract your followers to check out, we need to build up huge followers in terms of number so that the posts will get more retweet and spread further. As you can see, based on the Twitter restriction, you will be able to build up more followers when your followers number go up.
