Tweet Adder Review – Get More Followers

Image of Tweet AdderToday I’m sharing a Twitter tool called Tweet Adder with you.

On their home page they claim it was voted the best Twitter adder software. I don’t know about all that, but I do give it a thumbs up.

Tweet Adder isn’t something I use for automating my Tweet stream. A few of the things I do use it for I’ll list below:

  • Set criteria for who I follow and then follow them
  • Follow back people that followed me
  • Unfollow inactive people
  • Set up multiple accounts to segment my Tweet activity
  • Apply ratio settings of followers-to-following
  • Configure an automated direct message to go to a new follower (I may change this)

It’s a paid service and yes, my links here are affiliate links. So, if you purchase through my link I make some green. Not enough to set off to travel the globe but it may buy me some gas :)

Below is a snapshot of the Profile data search panel. You can customize the types of Profiles your Tweet Adder account will seek to follow on your behalf. It gives you options to search by user keywords in bio, their location, number of followers and even single out users who set default profile images.

This capture shows you can search user Tweets by keywords. This helps you find like-minded people or at least people Tweeting about things you may be even remotely interested in.

Using the manual or automation settings below, you have the ability to keep your following-to-follower ratios in check. There are customized settings panels for your Follow, Follow Back and Unfollow behavior. Tweet Adder allows you to set the quantity of these actions to send per day (while program is running) and the intervals of time to perform the actions.

I plugged in a few random numbers for illustration.

    Hey Jon,
    I keep circling around Twitter Adder and can’t decide whether or not I want to use it. Mostly, because I don’t want to invest the time in setting it up.

    I also feel like I want my Twitter connections to stay authentic. I want to actually have an interaction with folks. When I’m auto added by someone I can tell because they don’t engage and I don’t follow back.

    Nevertheless, you’ve got me convinced it’s a valuable tool so I just might commit to checking it out.

    Thanks for ANOTHER awesome review.

      You’re welcome, Marlee. Hope you’re feeling well after the recent misfortune.

      Also, it isn’t too much of a hassle to set up Tweet Adder. The initial learning curve is the same as with any new shiny tool. It may not be authentic enough for some but I believe that since I’m setting the criteria of who TA follows, I’d follow the same people manually anyway. But as I advised in the audio, you’ll certainly want to cull the bots and inactive users that will wind up on your list.

      Good to see you here :)

    Hey Jon,

    To be honest – I didn’t even realize that things as such (Tweet Adder) even existed. Marlee’s often turning me on to productivity apps like TweetDeck and Hootsuite, but I didn’t realize how in-depth you can get with Twitter. Wow!

    I do find it interesting that some much is automated. Let me give you my feelings on it. Keep in mind that I speak from as person who DOES NOT utilize social media for any business related reasons…

    The one thing that’s missing with Social Networking is the personal touch. I can always throw in a smiley like this: :) , but it’s different and more impacting to see a real smile in person. Social Networking already lacks the emotional connective piece of the network relationship concept. Automating seems as though it would stretch the connection and not bridge it.

    And, let me say that I’ve only been on Twitter for a few months…so I know very little. I’m still trying to figure the thing out and I surely haven’t benefited from the massive gains that I’ve heard others speak of. I just get a few clicks to my site now and then.

    If you get a chance – I’d love to learn more on how you use twitter for yourself and for your clients. I obviously have a lot to learn!

    Thanks Jon!

      Hi Jk,

      You make a good point about the social media space already lacking personal touch. What makes it even worse, is the high turnover on Twitter. I’ll likely expand on it in a future post (or podcast) but studies on Twitter users / usage has revealed many people set up their account and don’t do much with it beyond the first month (or first few tweets). That limits our window of opportunity to connect.

      I do mix it up with people (manual direct messages; the first one is auto) or tweet them even though Tweet Adder is aggregating follows/followers for me. The thing is, we can only say so much in 140 characters. I’d prefer to connect on a deeper level on our websites; particularly because I deliver a stronger message and higher value here than on Twitter or Facebook. Those services make for nice pathways leading in.

      If they have no interest connecting further on my site here, and if they don’t have one, then we stay on social media platforms. No harm done.

      Thanks for your thoughts, Jk, always welcomed and appreciated!

    I need to update to the latest version, it’s been forever since I tried TweetAdder and it ended up not being a great experience the first go around. Hopefully round two is better.

      Hi John,

      What disenchanted you with the program on round one?

    Twitter adder is on its way to being great, but not quite there yet.. The idea behind it is great, but there are few flaws on the program, I cannot speak for the pro version because I only tried the demo with horrific results.. Even with bad results i do see the potential given I was able to expand a network of relevant followers with a click of a button, only problem was half of those followers were inactive and another large portion were people who never tweeted before.. No way to search for people who have tweeted a certain amount of times and no way to get rid exclude inactive followers, just a way to exclude followers that do not have pics, somewhat idiotic that at least the demo version lets you exclude people without pics but not people that are inactive.. Not getting results in demo version makes it hard to jump to the pro version given I have no way of being a believer in something i tried and did not work, therefore i remain undecided.

      Thanks for sharing your experience with it. Like anything you’ll find your rhythm using it (or not) and I hear you on wanting filtering options. We’ll see what the future holds for these types of tools and Twitter.

    Absolutely Jon, these tools are great for people that do not have the time needed to spend prospecting alike users on tweeter. I also wanted to note that I actually did end up finding a filter for “last tweeted” which was helpful.
