At twiends our goal is to help you connect with new people on Twitter and Instagram.
We do this by increasing your exposure, highlighting your social content, and allowing people to follow you directly.
Everything on twiends revolves around people building lasting quality connections with each other.
We try and promote a community of discovery, where you can find interesting people to follow and they can find you.
Connections are called different things on different networks, such as 'following', 'friending', 'liking', etc.
Following someone on Twitter creates a connection with that person, and you will then receive their updates.
We will be adding many tools soon for managing connections.
Before people can connect with you, they need to see you.
Impressions are number of times you have been displayed to others, and it is displayed with the grey columns.
When you are active on twiends you will receive a certain number of free impressions.
You can also purchase featured impressions if you would like to promote yourself more. These are displayed with a darker grey column.
A new connection is made when you follow someone, and received when someone follows you. The number that appears at the top of your stats is the number of fully established connections you have made or received since midnight UTC.
These are connections that have not been dropped and are fully established.
A pending connection is one that is very new. If you follow someone then it will be pending for a short time before becoming fully established.
This gives you some time to change your mind and unfollow someone without affecting your stats.
This is important for the discovery aspect of our community. All following is opt-in and should be done because you are interested in receiving the other person's updates.
Made / Received
Many social networks operate a connection mechanism that is one-way in nature (eg. a twitter follow). This means that you may follow someone that does not follow you back, or vice versa.
Other social networks operate two-way mechanisms (eg. facebook friending). At twiends we differentiate between connections you make and receive in order to accommodate all these different types of networks.
You can therefor see in a fully transparent manner how many connections are made and received each day.

We recognise that no form of self-promotion is guaranteed.
In the world of internet promotion one can expect a wide-range of conversion rates depending on the method of promotion used.
At twiends we'll always do our best to provide a great discovery community for our members, whether you are using the service for free or as a VIP.
These stats and the detailed activity reports provided on the history page are two tools we use to create transparency of our service performance.
