By on Aug 3, 2010 in Twitter Tools |

BlastFollow enables you to follow Twitter users who share your interests en masse. This is accomplished by searching for users who have tweeted with a particular hashtag recently. For example, if you are interested in American Idol, you may want to search for users whose tweets have included the hashtag “#americanidol”. To make this happen, you would go to the home page and enter “americanidol” in the hashtag box. DO NOT ENTER THE POUND SIGN! That is already assumed. Then, click the “Get Users!” button. This will retrieve the users who have tweeted “#americanidol” recently. The number of users found will be displayed. You can then enter your Twitter user name and password and click the “Blast!” button. You will start following all of those users. Remember, the hashtags are case-sensitive. So “#tcot” is not the same as “#TCOT”. In this case, you might want to BlastFollow people associated with both hashtags. Also, remember to check back frequently. Two days from now if you search for Twitter users who have tweeted with “#americanidol”, you’ll get a different list than if you do so today. You can start following those users as well.
