Yeah, that's fine.  People who don't want to follow your tweets wont while those that do like what you have to say may start following.

There's Tweetadder and Tweetdeck:

I would experiment with each one to find what suits your needs.  How large of a scale are you planning on going (ie, how many followers are you looking to obtain)?

I want to create some buzz on our IndieGoGo crowd funding project GarbleCard.  I want to find Tweeters talking about RFID skimming and credit card fraud, follow them and see if they will follow GarbleCard.  If they do great, if not, I would unfollow them.  I do it manually now and it is a pain.  Also want to engage the security bloggers and see if they might find our interesting patented product interesting.  Thanks

Tweetadder appears to be more of a commercial software for people like you.  You can see a demo of the software on this video:

It has a 7-day money back guarantee, so I don't think you can go wrong.
