A bit of history

First released in 2012 (over 5 years ago), Twando is a Twitter automation script with an incredible number of features to help manage your Twitter accounts. It's written by me, Jon Hudghton. I'm not a developer by trade (I now work mainly as an ecommerce consultant) but I'm happy with the result.

After over 45,000 downloads of versions 0.1 to 0.6.4, Twando 1.0 was released in 2017. This version came with many major new feature additions and a complete code rewrite. I also moved away from open source distribution (as was the case in versions 0.1 to 0.6.4) and introduced commercial licensing to help ensure I can commit the time to keep improving Twando for the next 5 years (and beyond, hopefully).

Why was Twando created?

I run various sites in my spare time, affiliate sites, paid for remote scripts and so on. I like where possible to have Twitter accounts associated with these sites and to help build follower numbers easily I wanted to "auto follow back" with these accounts. So I went searching on the magical wonder that is "the internet" to try and find some way to do this with the following requirements:

  • Quick and easy to use
  • No need to download software to PC
  • No manual interaction required to follow back once set up (I can go to Twitter.com and manually follow people back for goodness sake)
  • No ongoing monthly subscription costs
I couldn't find anything to satisfy these requirements online. Originally I had thought I might just create a basic command line script; however as I started writing Twando, it kind of snowballed into a far more comprehensive application and I decided to add as many useful features as I could think of. Hence, Twando was born. With the release of version 1.0 in 2017, I was able to add a whole array of new features and make Twando into what I believe is a really excellent piece of software, although I am perhaps, slightly biased :)
