You may recognise the name Crowdfire from the automated DM’s that so many people use but there’s tons more stuff that you can do with the site than just annoy new followers.
Connect your Twitter account, and you’ll be able to see things like who has recently unfollowed you, who has recently followed you, and what accounts are inactive. You can follow or unfollow people from these sections as well, which is a useful way to clean up your following list if you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed.
If you’re looking to follow lots of new people, then there are really interesting features in Crowdfire to find new accounts – CopyFollowers, and Keyword Follow. CopyFollowers is where you enter a Twitter username in who is in a similar field to you and it will show you use accounts to follow. The keyword follow tool does much the same thing but instead, you enter a keyword or hashtag and it will show you people who have used that word in a recent tweet. You can even restrict the keyword follow tool by location which is useful if you only want to see bloggers based in the UK, for example.
With a free account, you can only use one linked account – but since Instagram actions are now restricted to paid accounts, this isn’t too much of an issue. You can only perform 50 actions a day but you can upgrade if that’s not enough!
