Your Exposure & Growth

At twiends our goal is to help you connect with new people on Twitter. We do this by increasing your exposure, highlighting your tweets, and allowing people to follow you directly.

More Exposure

If you want to increase your exposure then you'll need to participate frequently by following and connecting with others, or featuring yourself.

The best way to use twiends is the same way you would successfully network in the real world (i.e. meeting small groups of people throughout the whole day). We want to create good connections between users, so we prioritise those who do this. It is therefore better to visit twiends a few times a day and follow some people than it is to visit once a week and mass-follow. Your exposure will diminish over time to encourage this type of frequent and sustainable activity.

Connections

Everything on twiends revolves around people building (hopefully lasting) 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 one-way connection with that person, and you will then receive their updates.


1. Free Displays

Before people can connect with you, they need to see you. Displays are number of times you have been displayed to others on twiends. When you are active on twiends you will receive free displays, and these are shown with the light grey columns.

2. Connections / Follows Received

A new connection is received when someone follows you. We call it a connection because it means that the person is still following you. When someone unfollows you then the connection is dropped and it will no longer be reported in these numbers. The numbers therefore reflect the connections that have not been dropped and are still fully established. Please note that connection tracking is not real-time and may take a few hours to update.

3. Featured Displays

You can also purchase featured displays if you would like to increase your exposure - without necessarily having to connect with others initially. This gets people connecting with you first, and you can then choose if you want to connect back or not. Featured displays are shown with darker grey columns.

Tips & Tricks

We try and make twiends as fair and beneficial to everyone as possible, without imposing too many restrictions. With this in mind we have built twiends so that it will deliver maximum results to those who do this:

Connect Frequently With Small Groups

It's far better to connect with a handful of people every few hours than it is to mass follow once a week. Our exposure engine is tuned exactly for this type of honest and responsible outreach, and you will receive the most connections back by doing this.

Do Small Daily Clean-Up

Because this is a discovery service we do expect you to clean-up a small number of connections each day, but we also set tight limits on this. If you come across a profile that you just don't like then by all means remove it, but also know that this will generally reduce your own exposure slightly.

Don't Bulk Unfollow

If you unfollow everyone then we will detect this and we will assume that you no longer want to participate. You will generally lose all of your exposure and you may also receive less exposure when you start up again due to the risk associated with your account. It may take many weeks for your account to return to normal if you do this and you will experience poor results during this time.

Unlock Your Twitter

Please make sure that you fully set up your twitter account, along with good tweets, profile picture, a registered phone number, etc. If you follow or unfollow too many people in a short space of time then twitter may temporarily lock your account. It's important that you unlock your account and reduce your future activity. All your connections will appear as dropped while your account is locked, so it's important that you fix this.

Time Zone

All our times are aligned to UTC. If you are not familiar with that then it means that midnight is roughly when it's midnight in London. If you are in the US then it means that your stats may already be halfway through the day when you wake up in the morning.

Summary

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 Featured user. These stats and the detailed activity reports provided on the history page are two tools we use to create transparency of our service performance.
