Tools to download followers from social networks

I’m giving one workshop and one talk tomorrow at PubCon 2015 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The first session is about anything related to Pinterest. My workshop is completely sold-out and I’m ready to answer all Pinterest related questions.


The afternoon session, Finding the Facebook Influencers, involves bringing followers from your other social networks over to Facebook. The following lists pertain to that talk. Below are some good tools and tips that you can use to download connections from Twitter and LinkedIn. I will add some Pinterest links to this.

The purpose of exporting followers or connections from one social media platform is to import them into another social network. If a person has an account on one social network like Pinterest, they are likely to follow you or your business on another social network. In this talk we are working on getting more Facebook followers by exporting contacts from Twitter and LinkedIn. And we are looking for the especially influential ones!

The following tools can be found on a great post on You will find tips on how to:

  • Fetch Twitter Search Results
