Can I set the Twitter app to auto follow new followers?

Twitter FAQs

No, you can't set up your Twitter project so your account will auto follow people that re-tweet the messages that you post on your selected Twitter account. Twitter does not allow this.

But first, what is Auto Follow?

Auto follow can assist in expanding your Twitter following by automatically connecting with other users who share your content, encouraging them to follow you as well. This can provide an increase in follower growth that should be watched throughout the campaign, as aggressive follower growth can negatively affect your account. It is encouraged that you continue to keep an eye on your Twitter following throughout the campaign to ensure you don't reach your following limit, causing you to no longer be able to follow other users until you yourself gain more followers.
