Twiends a Tool to Help Increase Twitter Followers [Twiends Review]

Surfing around the internet the other day I came across a website called twiends.com a Twitter Tool that helps you increase your Twitter followers, but before I carry on, I must mention that this is not an automated program and you must take responsibility in following and unfollowing in a non aggressive way as you can be banned from Twiends and worse of all from Twitter.

Twiends Review

Twiends is simple to use, you simple sign up with your Twitter and then you are on your way, you will get some bonus free credits (more on them later) for joining so those should help you on your way, you can earn credits by following tweeters or you can pay for a set amount of credits for a low price.

A good feature about Twiends is you can set your location and your interests, this will then allow you to see who has the same interests or location as yourself, so you can choose who you want to follow and the same goes for those following you.

Twiends - Get twitter followers, facebook fans and website visitors!Now the only problem I have seen with this, and this usually the same with most Twitter Tools, is the spammers, they are far and few between, but you will still get those “adult” twitters following you, you know the ones I mean ;) So keep an eye on who is following you, better safe than sorry. Unless you don’t care and just want the numbers.

When I joined I opted to also subscribe to the RSS feed which gave me some bonus free credits, I also opted to try the 200 credits and VIP status for $5.95, as a test to see how it works, so in a months time, I’ll post again with a round up of my experience with Twiends

Since I originally wrote this post about Twiends have now have several more options, these include adding your FaceBook pages to get more likes and adding your website to gain some extra hits. Another point to make, is that the option to “Twiend” every one on one page has now gone and you must select each Twiend one at a time, I dare say this is to do with Twitters guidelines on mass following Tweeters.

Twiends has also gone through a re-design with the site, looking much fresher and more professional than it previous incarnation ;)

Added Bonus FREE Twiends Credits!

Grab them while you can, these are are couple of codes that will give you Extra Twiends Credits to grab some new followers.

  • OK1SA5T (50 credits)
  • G341UP (50 credits)

Happy Twiending ;)

    Thanks for letting us know about this. I have tried a few of the others or should say looked into them and didn’t care too much for them, for whatever reason. I will give this a look see.

    Never fear, in a month I’ll be bringing you my thoughts ;)

    • http://bloggingwithsuccess.net/ Ishan

      Well, I do not think it will be a big success.

      Why?

      Because such systems need you to spend some time and then also follow others. And I doubt about the quality of followers too. And since you are getting followers for following, the ratio of followers:following will be pretty close to 1, which is not considered good in eyes of many good users!

  • http://letupdate.com Dana

    It seems like traffic exchange program in my opinion which usually give low quality traffic. Therefore, i think this twiends may only produce low quality follower but yeah– it is still worthy to check.

    Nice find Karen, I actually decreased the amount of people I follow tremendously over the last few weeks to focus more on the quality twitter users I was following at the time. It’s really helped with increasing the depth of conversations and how many of my followers I can interact with.

    Thanks for sharing the site, I went to register but had a little problem, maybe try again latter ;)

    I always wondering how to unfollow people not following me on twitter, any help?

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      If you are looking to unfollow twitters then try UnTweeps

    • http://leesdykstuff.blogspot.com lees shizzle

      Yeah this is what I was looking for too. The unfollow. Twitter makes it difficult with there set-up to go through the ppl you follow to unfollow, without spending ex-amount of hours to search through them by clicking next page etc.. going to go check this untweeps out now..
      thanks

    Looks like an interesting site, but reminds me too much of a traffic exchange as Dana said before. Let us know how it turns out.

    Will try this out Karen, thanks for sharing.
    .-= ZXT is hoping you stop by and read Big Savings =-.

  • ZXT

    Hey in 10 minutes I got 10 followers already:)

    And I’m just trying the free account with no $$$ involve. I think this really works and what I like it best is no auto follow so everyone follow everyone manually.

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      Remember not to follow too many too quickly though ;) If you subscribe to the Twiends feed you’ll get an extra 100 credits, write a review on your blog for 100 credits, also check out this section on how to get an extra 1,000 credits ;)

  • ZXT

    In less than 12 hours I got 60 followers and I only followed like 7 peeps :)

    I got the 100 bonus points because I followed Twiends. I lost 12 so far since then :( Nut maybe because I never followed anyone back.

    Nice find Karen.

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      It’s ok getting followers, it’s keeping on to them ;)

  • iWoodpecker

    I have, probably, missed something.. does Twiends have any limitations per daily basis? And what would you prefer better: Twiends or Buzzom? (their features to follow new twitter users look pretty much the same for me)

    Oh.. and two offtop things more:

    1. I think you’re missing one simple and important SEO advantage – using keywords in image titles (like blah-blah.jpg, where “blah-blah” is the keyword – I think it, actually, works);

    2. How did you make sexybookmarks retweet your posts using your custom URL shortener and place ( via @BlazingMinds) to the end of a tweet?

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      Sexybookmarks is placing “via” automatically and I use the Twitter Friendly Links WordPress plugin for my custom URL shortener ;)

  • http://ileane.wordpress.com/ Ileane

    I’ve never heard of this one. I’m using Buzzom Premium. You can schedule tweets and get a built in URL shortener nxy.in
    Thanks for the tip.

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      Just another avenue for Twitters to check out ;)

  • Trina Colon

    I have never used this one yet twiends tool for twitter it really sounds good coming from you and this would likely increase my twitter followers – Thanks for sharing this good information.

  • http://live-your-love.com/what-are-ipsc-and-practical-shooting/ Brankica

    Hi, I have just ran into this tweet and decided to check it out. The tool looks nice and I am just now trying it out.
    I have one question though, in case you tried it – if I register with one name, can I use multiple Twitter accounts (I have separate account for each site)?
    Thanks for the tip!

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      You have to have separate account for each of your Twitter accounts ;)

  • Sam Sall

    Thanks Karen…I’m signing up for it…it is exactly what I need …

    It seems a good way to finding tweeters with same intrest and good quality tweets…

    Looking forward to your follow up post..

    Thanks again

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      Like all Twitter tools, make sure you don’t abuse them ;)

  • http://tek3d.org Tuan

    I agree that the followers from this network get no help for your traffic. I tried their service before and was quite disappointed.

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      Sadly I think it all depends on what type of tweeter you get following you ;)

  • http://www.evolutionarydesigns.net/blog element321

    Thanks for sharing Karen. I think I might try this out. To me it looks like a traffic exchange service, but it might be worth it I am interested in what you have to say and I think I will wait for your results.

    I am using Tweepi for following and unfollowing. Its all manual, but I have a lot of control who I follow and who I unfollow.

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      I like Tweepi, I use that quite a bit to unfollow the “trash” from my twitter timeline ;)

  • Dennis Edell

    OK I’m a year or two late, but am gonna ask anyway…what is the fricken rush?!?!?!

  • tonyknuckles

    Yes, the latest version of this application a bunch more stabler and robust. I like the other Facebook and website traffic it can generate as well.

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      The options to tweek the settings to limit the type of tweeter to follow you works great as well ;)

  • http://arslan-poetry-blog.blogspot.com/ Arslan

    Nice post! I think ill give it a try….thanks

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      Let me know how you get on with it ;)

  • dave

    I’ve been evaluating twiends for the last week. Great way to get fans to follow your facebook page so that you can get your custom name. However the quality of fans is DISMAL! 99.9% are from pakistan, india, turkey and look to be fake profiles. This even happens if you specify you want U.S. ‘likes’ on your facebook page. It’s funny to see a profile where they say they live in L.A. but they are fans of the pakistan cricket team .. ROFL! Give me a break.

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      :lol: It’s as Twiends has become more popular that this has started happening, as with anything that starts off well, someone is always going to abuse the system, shame really.

  • http://blog.retrocollage.com/ Art of RetroCollage

    I just started trying it out today to increase Facebook fans only. I read somewhere that it can be used to gain website/blog visitors directly, but I don’t see how. Anyway, there are so many European countries and ANZAC that I don’t want to ignore, so I don’t really want to limit myself that way.

    You have been using it for a while. I hope you give us an update of your impressions.

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      I will probably be doing an update post sooner or later ;)

  • http://www.arenacreative.com/ ArenaCreative

    It’s a great tool for quickly adding follower – I was able to increase mine so far by 500 in a day. Are they quality followers though? Probably not. Time will tell. I’d definitely recommend this for those just starting out on twitter, if they want to bump up their follower #s fast.

  • http://bestswisswatches.info Nicolas

    There are so many twitter tools that claim to increase followers, but I am reluctant to use any since it seems like the quality of followers would be pretty poor – I’ve heard of bloggers getting lots of traffic back from tweets but I haven’t really seen it yet, although I have fewer than 100 followers so that might have something to do with it. :) Maybe I need a twitter tool after all…

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      You do have a little control over this one, you don’t have to follow anyone that you don’t want to, rather than just follow everyone ;)

  • Nabil

    I use twiends for facebook and one of my biggest issues is the very active news feed I have after liking several pages. I was thinking of creating a separate account and using that account to like pages so that my main account won’t be seeing so many updates that I don’t wish to see. Is this a good idea? Or will it get me in trouble?

  • http://fiverrway.com Christian

    From 10k followers to almost 12k followers in few days – this is what twiends means for me, otherwise, they are not so targeted. And some likes to my facebook fun pages…. However, I’m happy about twiends and try to find other similar sites, not anyone the same until now. Thank you. Christian.

  • tonyknuckles

    Looks like Facebook has put the kaibosh on them for the page likes function. They will slowly roll on into the dustbin soon.
