@rich-brooks I think http://manageflitter.com or @ManageFlitter is quite a cool too – you can see you is not following you back, who is inactive, who is talkative, who is quiet and do a bio search.
Another I came across is http://thetwitcleaner.com/ or @twitcleaner – you can click on SCAN ME NOW and get a report on who is “not so interest” “potentially dodgy behavior” and stuff so pretty fun! You also have the option to see how your OWN account looks to Twit Cleaner: mine said “You’re awesome! Keep being your wonderful self – you don’t appear on anyone’s reports” and then gives you tips on how to improve such as it said to me “however your account is starting to get pretty link heavy. This is fine of course, just don’t forget to chat to people too ” – I love it!
I also search using # to see who comes up for my niche target and follow those I would like to follow me and mention them as well and engage with them or put people in touch with others where I think there may be a connection eg @winetasting you should check out @eventscompany as maybe there could be some collaboration there.
Also I always thank people for following me, mentioning me or Retweeting me and say have a nice weekend or something add in a etc and also try when I can to not just mention only the @username but also then mention what they do and why people should follow them so it gives them a bit of a punt… for example “thx for the follow @username – you should check them out as they give great tips on social media for business startups”
