1. Connect with the most influential people on Twitter at one place
there are many ways to find out tons of influentail people on twitter, but one nifty way is to keep track of all those homepage tweeters. these guys aren’t the classified verified account holders but the most serious and interesting folks that twitter team handpicks to be featured on the twitter homepage. Now,here’s one tool that keeps track of it based on the frequency of appearance and influence. Resonancers
2. Connect with all your Facebook friends on Twitter
Facebook friends are more valuable than Twitter. At least, you have a better rapport with them than on Twitter. How about importing or finding them all on Twitter ? Friendlynx ,hmm just relax hav a bottle while it helps you seach for your friends on facebook and match them with their twitter handles helping you to follow and connect with them on twitter.
3. Manage your followers list effectively to find new engagements
This is another amazing software that keeps tab of your most active friends on twitter , like the ones you talk to most ,the ones who retweet you most, the ones who added you to their list most and give you specific reports.

4. Find & Follow new and interesting people based on interests
I know there are a couple of tools that lets you do this, but one tool that is consistent and delivers results effectively is peoplebrwser. With this tool you can select a region from an entire list of places, and also select an activity or area of interest and it lists out possible interested people based on your searched criteria. For example, if you search for “movie goers” from “miami”, it gives you an entire list of people from Miami who’re well.. movie goers. The interesting this is that the list is more or less accurate and is pre populated which makes it very authentic. I use it to follow interesting folks from different categories that interests me. Have to admit that striking a conversation with them makes more sense as you share the same interest with each other.
5. Connect with people who retweet your content most
So you have a blog, or may be not. But there are lots of people who retweet your content. Do you really take an effort to search and find them ? If you thought all your retweets appear in your “mentions” you’re wrong. Many retweets miss your mentions column both on apps like Tweetdeck and the web. Now, here’s a tool that will effectively help you find all the people who’re retweeting your content. Retweetfollow – if you give a phrase (your handle or a tweet) or even a URL, then it searches the entire tweet directory for tweets that mention it and gives you a neat list of all the people who has retweeted you – along with their
vital statistics like influence / follower number etc.
This is a good way to find more people who’re already inclined to engage with you, but whom you never knew of.
Do not engage in any sort of automation like mass following thousands of people, and hoping that they follow you back. Unless your stream is active and interesting, nobody is going to follow you back.
So the idea is to maintain an interesting stream in the first place. The above tools will help you create interesting conversations and find new people based on interest and strike a new conversation with them.
It has always worked for me, hope it works for you as well.
