Automatically following people on Twitter when they start following you is easy. All you need to do is sign up for an account at Tweet Later. Setting up and account at Tweet Later will provide you with a dashboard where you can configure multiple Twitter accounts. Once configured you will be able to set up various automation tasks including following those that have followed you, sending private messages to people, or stop following people who stop following you.
Once you have a verified Tweet Later account login to the tweetlater.com website. Once logged in select the Accounts menu item which will open a sub navigation menu. Select “Add Account” to add the Twitter account where you want to set up automation tasks. During the setup process you will be able to configure multiple options including Auto Welcome, Auto Follow, Vet Followers, and Auto Unfollow. Below is a brief description of each of these four options.
Auto Welcome: This option allows you to send a private Twitter message to people who start following you. This is useful if you want to also point out to them your blog or company information.
Auto Follow: This will automatically follow people who start following you on Twitter.
Vet Followers:Requires approval of the Auto Follow Twitter accounts. The benefit is it is all from one interface versus having to do it from the Twitter account interface.
Auto Unfollow:This will automatically unfollow those who have stopped following your Twitter account.
Another cool feature on Tweet Later is the “Automation Stats” interface where you can login and check how many new followers have automatically been added in a certain period of time as shown in the below image.
So you can see that using the Tweet Later dashboard to manage one or multiple Twitter accounts can make things much easier especially if you are trying to get as many followers as possible as many people seem to do these days.
