Giving Owlead Access to your Twitter Account
Owlead runs on autopilot in the background while you take care of your daily tasks. That's why the platform needs access your account to perform automated actions.
Although that Owlead perform actions in your behalf, it does it emulating human behaviour and that's one of the key features of the platform. We've studied Twitter limits in the past 4 years and we honour their limits policy.
To give Owlead access to your account currently you can do it in two different forms.
Option 1 - Install our Google Chrome Extension
If you use Google Chrome on a daily basis this is the most simple way to give Owlead access to your Twitter account. Just install the extension and login in your Twitter account from there. We'll grab the information we need to run Owlead to grow your account.

Option 2 - Copy and paste your Twitter cookies

2. Go to Tools > Web Developer > Storage Inspector.
3. Copy the value cookie session under auth_token.
4. Paste it in your Owlead account under Cookie Access Account and hit save.
Warm up your Twitter account
If you have just created a new Twitter account, you'll need to warm it up first before using Owlead. Twitter is suspending temporally new accounts that associate apps (any app) before having some activity in your account.
So, to start using Owlead you'll need at least 50 organic followers and we also recommend (not mandatory but highly recommended) to have an active account with tweets, interactions and direct messages before starting using Owlead.
We take care of the security of your account that's why we allow the use of Owlead for those that meet that simple criteria, at least 50 organic followers in your Twitter account.
Creating a Campaign
It's very important the use of filters to maximize the follow back ratio. Here you'll finde some recommendations and best practices:
The followers of this account should be from your target audience. Ideally here you should use the account of a competitor.
Try using all the keywords related with the most common localization of your followers. e.g. if you want to search for followers from Miami;
Miami, MIA, Florida, and so on.
Use the keywords that your potential followers use in their bio to identify themselves. e.g. if you try to search for digital marketing industry users, use;
marketing, digital, social media and so on.
You can choose to filter based on gender between; women, men and others (brands, products, etc.).
Owlead applies an artificial intelligence algorithm to show you the most active and attractive accounts on Twitter.
After you hit Save your campaign will start automatically, you can pause it whenever you want. Owlead will narrow down an audience that meet your criteria so you can follow them easily.
If you have doubts with the filter you've configured, you can click on the link on Current Reach and see some Twitter profiles that are in your filter criteria, check if those users are from your target audience. Everytime you edit a campaign the Current Reach will update accordingly.
Campaigns with your competitor
Remember that the technique that will generate a higher follow back ratio, is to use as a search account a competitor. If they are interested in your competitor content, probably they would be interested in your brand.
Just active campaigns
In your plan Owlead counts the amount of active campaigns. e.g. in your Starter Plan you can configure till 5 campaigns, but you can have just one active campaign. If you want, you can pause and resume the campaigns on demand.
More than one campaign per search account
You can configure more than one campaign for the same search account. That means you can target different genders or keywords and see how they are performing against each other.
In case you did't notice how to obtain new keywords for your campaigns, here you will find how:
📈 Below your campaigns you will find two charts with data from your followers:
Gender & Interests.
Those keywords that appear on the Interest Graph, are the ones more repeated over your followers. Your follow back ratio would perform better if you add those keywords to your campaigns.
We are going to help you narrowing an audience on Twitter so you can follow them easily, but, are you creating great content on Twitter?
The content it's an important piece to keep the followers you've gained engaged. If you don't publish valuable content constantly, probably you'll lose those gained followers.
