Why not do something much simpler:

1. Follow people you find interesting, gradually.

2. Generate content which will make you interesting to others

3. Use @replies, mentions, and DMs to communicate with others

4. Gain followers who are interested in what you have to say, not
because of some lame system of reciprocity.

Just a thought…
