Hi Maria, based on my experience, you can ask anybody to hunt their product, usually via Twitter DMs, no need to have a specific number of followers. I don't know so much about the PH algorithm, anyway when you post a product, its position goes up depending on the votes and interactions it gets on Launch day. Hope it helps a little ;)
@frankeno Thanks a lot Frank! ^_^ This is indeed very helpful! For instance - now I know I need to re-activate my Twitter profile :D ^_^

So anybody can hunt a product. All product hunt followers of the hunter will get a notification about the launch. That is the main reason to use a hunter. Hunter usually also shares their launch on other social platforms, so you can be a good hunter without product hunt followers if you have a nice follower base on other social media like LinkedIn or Twitter.
@fabian_maume Great! This is very valuable explanation, and now I have much clearer image of how it's working / what's the point.. Thanks a lot Fabian! ^_^ So, basically, if I want to become a hunter, or if I want to have hunters for my product - I must contact makers / hunters via other platforms and ask them for it, right?
Thanks for asking the question - something I was also interested to know!
@maxwellcdavis You are very welcome! I hope these answers will be useful for you as well! ^_^

I try to collect points with first upvoting products and comment to them, trying to catch upvotes to your comments and discussions
@sini_katariina Have a luck in the process! I have no doubt you will discover many great products and comments that will give you amazing insights! ^_^ I must tell that PH is for me the most inspiring network! ^_^
