Why Do We Need It?
Recently, I have been experimenting with growing my follower base on Twitter and LinkedIn with the use of bots. As a writer on Medium, I do not need to tell you how important it is to grow your personal brand. A strong social media presence is essential to driving engagement & constantly finding new readers. At the end of the day, we would like to spread new content as quickly as possible and stay in touch with our followers.
This post will show you how to grow your follower base using Twinybots — an AI app which allows users to automatically post to social media websites. This bot will post choose content according to a list of subjects that you will select when setting up the account. In my experience, this service allows your Twitter account to communicate with style and personality.
Disclaimer — I am not associated or affiliated in any way, shape or form with Twinybots. I wrote this piece to help Medium members grow their readership base and increase their social media outreach.
It utilizes RSS news feeds to discover content that matches with your interests & posts it to your social media account. You can set the posts to tweet, re-tweet or like to ensure diverse account activity.
Currently, the bot is focused on limited number of subjects that include:
- User experience
UI, UX, MaterialDesign, DesignThinking, Prototyping…
- Crypto currency
Bitcoin, CryptoCurency, Ethereum, Blockchain…
InternetOfThings, VirtualReality, BioHacking, Futurism…
- Artificial Intelligence
DeepLearning, NeuralNetworks, Chatbots, ArtificialIntelligence…
Nasa, SpaceX, Nanotechnology, BioTech…
- City & Environment
SmartCities, OpenData, Biodiversity, ClimateChange…
LeanStartup, Coaching, MindMapping, Innovation…

How to Set Up TwinyBots
You will need to log on to :- https://twinybots.ch/ and select the Free Trial Option from this page. The “FREE” option allows you to post on Twitter and grants you 1 Twinybots — this is enough for getting started with Twitter. I am using it!
Note — The “PRO” plan will allow the user to post on both Twitter and LinkedIn and will grant you 2 Twinybots.
Once you’ve linked your Twitter account to this service, you can check out the easy-to-use dashboard that has multiple features.
- You can select which SUBJECTS are interesting to you. I have chosen Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Data Mining, Big Data, Open Data and Social Media. Twinybots only posts articles that are related to these topics on my Twitter page.
- In the SETTINGS section, you can select the frequency of your posts, optimize post distribution ratio and even select languages that you like your posts to be in.
- In the QUEUE section, you can see which posts will be liked, posted, or retweeted. You can delete them if you do not wish certain posts to show up on your profile.
The Twinybots service will enable you to constantly stay in touch on social media 24 hours a day. It will give you a chance to connect with Twitter accounts that follow the same hashtags as you do and likely create a broad audience for your Medium posts. You can go once a day on your Twitter account and follow accounts that have liked, commented or retweeted your posts and organically increase your followers.

In my opinion, social media has evolved into a different animal than what it was a few years ago. You must change with the times and one way to do that is use bots to turn your social media profile into a juggernaut. Converstations are happening in these spaces whether you’re there or not. You have to remember — social networks are always about experiences. If you like, tweet or retweet regularly, you’re creating those experiences that the Twitter world craves for!
Let me know in the comments section if you try this service. I hope this “JUGAAD” works for you ! Stay safe everyone!!
