I wanna be a follow-back girl (with discretion)
December 23, 2015 11:20 PM   Subscribe

I'm managing an organization's Twitter account (and other social media efforts). I want to follow back accounts that follow me, but only the ones who are active and have followers of their own.

There are dozens and dozens of Twitter web apps out there, but I have yet to find one that shows me an easy, readable table of (Name)__(TweetCount)_(Following)__(Followers)__(DoIFollow).

It's possible this feature is part of FollowerWonk Pro, but I can't afford Pro. My budget is zero.

I don't think you can do this for free. And if the overall endeavor is worthwhile, it's worth spending a few bucks on. If it's not important enough to the organization to invest a few tens of dollars on social account management each month, then it's not important enough to bother with at all. Seriously, not every organization needs to be on any channel in particular.

I use SocialBro (dumb-ass name, decent functionality), and it does everything you want and more. I've used followerwonk for research, but I never used it for following/unfollowing/list-adding, etc., so I can't speak to its efficacy there. I've used others, like Tweepi and commun.it, and others I've forgotten, but SocialBro just seems to work.

Crowdfire is perfect for this. You can sorry by follower number and inactive users. There is a daily limit however on the free plan.

Can you program? In Twython (python) or twitteR (R) this would be three/four lines of code, you could run once a day.

Thanks for solving this while I slept! Crowdfire is just what I was looking for.
