Twitter Follow All On Page Greasemonkey Script
Once again, I’d just like to begin by saying you’re welcome. I’ve recently been experiencing this odd phenomenon– a sudden burst of productivity beginning around 4:00 AM and ending around 6:30. So last night, I put together this Greasemonkey Script to follow all unfollowed users on a twitter page.
About this Script
If you don’t already know, Greasemonkey is an addon to Firefox that allows you to run little pieces of code called user scripts inside other websites to customize your experience. You can find thousands of such user scripts at UserScripts.org.
One of the best way to gain followers is to follow people somehow already connected to you. There is a higher chance that these users will follow you back. Compared to the paid services out there that add thousands of random followers, manually following quality users is still the best way, but it’s tedious.
This script is a middle-ground in the world of auto-twittermation? Simply install the script, and then everytime you visit someones following/followers list, a box will pop up asking if you want to add all users on the page. Click it, and your will shall be done.
Quick Instructions for the Impatient
If you know what you’re doing, and you already have Greasemonkey installed, here’s the userscript.
Detailed Instructions for the Incompitent
If you don’t already have Firefox, you’re an idiot. Download and install.
Once installed, add the Greasemonkey plugin.
Come back here, and click on the userscript link.
When the Greasemonkey box pops up, use all the default settings.
The script is now ready to use. Go to twitter and visit someone’s following/follower list.
When on a page, if there’s anyone to follow, a bar will pop out along the bottom, allowing you to do so.
I wrote this script in about 2.5 hours. It works with twitter the way it is now, but if they ever change, it’s likely it will not. I mostly wrote it to help myself out, but if you want to use it, that’s cool. I don’t plan on supporting it all. Feel free to email me and tell me you like it, but I won’t answer any questions about it. I made the directions as easy as possible, so at this point, there is nothing I can do to help you.
