TweetStork – The Twitter Tool For Finding Targeted Followers

Posted by on 21st Jan 2011 | 10 comments

Find targeted followers with TweetStork.Twitter users are always looking for new ways to find targeted followers. It’s important to not just have a lot of followers on Twitter, but to have followers that are going to interact with you and add value to your timeline. With TweetStork, you can find related users, list owners and re-tweeters who are just like you. You can also use it to unfollow users who aren’t following you back. Best of all, it’s free and requires very little work on your end.

Find Related Users

In order to find users that are like you, TweetStork will scan the followers of Twitter users who are similar to you. All you have to do is enter the username of a Twitter user of your choice and TweetStork will do the rest.

TweetStork - Find Related Users

With the advanced search feature, you can define the keywords that the user descriptions should and should not contain. You can also set the quantity of users that you want to search for; the default is 30, but you can search for up to 100 at a time.

Once you get your results, you can follow users directly from the TweetStork website. Your results will display each user’s avatar picture, username, bio and number of followers. TweetStork keeps a tally of how many people you follow for the day and overall (if you continue to use the site).

Find List Owners

This section works the same way as finding related followers: enter the username of a similar Twitter user and get valid results. What TweetStork does is search through the Twitter lists of users that person follows and then shows you people from those lists that are related to you. You’ll be able to see the Twitter list that the user is on and how many followers the list has as well as how many followers the user has.

Find Re-Tweeters

Again you have the same setup, the difference is that TweetStork searches for users who retweet users similar to you. They suggest that you enter a similar, yet popular user here. You can also specify the amount of re-tweeters that you’d like to search for. There are no advanced search options for this section. The results here will show you the user’s tweet containing the searched user’s name.

Unfollow Users

TweetStork can also go through your following list and let you know who is not following you back. If there are some users that you never want shown here, you can add them to an “unfollow whitelist” and TweetStork will never display them again. Results are displayed in order from oldest to most recent and you’ll be able to see how long ago you followed each user. This will give you a good idea of whether you should unfollow at that moment or wait a little longer.

Subscriptions

As mentioned above TweetStork is free, but free accounts also have a 15 per day follow and unfollow limit. If you would like to remove this limitation, you can purchase a yearly (19.95EUR) or monthly (2.99EUR) subscription.

Plain and simple, TweetStork is a very useful tool that is great for helping you grow your Twitter network. I’d rather follow a small group of users who will actually interact with me rather than thousands of users who never say anything to me. I’m sure many of you would agree and that’s why TweetStork is a very valuable tool.

    Interesting post, Charnita. Finding Tweeters who are tweeting links I want to read can be quite time consuming. I notice TweetStork is yet another Twitter tool that needs access to my account in order for me to use it. I really don't want my tweetstream having tweets from anyone but me. Maybe all Twitter tools need that access, but until they don't I won't use them. Paranoia, I guess. Thanks for the post.

    Awesome tool, I think targeted followers are the way to go better to have 200 targeted followers than 3000 non-targeted followers better click through rate.

    I do not want my tweet tweet with anyone, except me. Maybe all the Twitter tools that need access, but until I do not use.

    It looks like a nice tool, gonna google around a little more before I try it.

    Question: If TweetStork is so good at finding followers, why does @TweetStork only have 975 followers? I almost have that much and I'm a newbie.
