Another thing I look at is if there are personal comunications to others and if they comment about every day things.  I'm sure I have been fooled by a few bots but anytime somebody gets out of hand I unfollow them.  If anybody sends me a DM after I follow them I will take a harder look and most the time unfollow.  Auto DM's piss me off.
