There is no twitter user that never thought about the ways how to get more twitter followers. For those who don’t know Twitter is social network, similar to Facebook where you can share up to 140 signs long messages known as tweets. The more followers you got, the more people will read your messages and the more people will hear about you.
1. Follow others
Follow others and get followed. Most twitters will follow you back if you follow them. If you made brand-new account don’t follow more than 50 people a day. Otherwise you could get suspended because of following other people too much. Build your twitter account first for a month or so, and then after Twitter see you as active and quality member (not as spammer) you could follow up to 2o0-300 people a day. Usually about 30-50% twitter users will follow you back. So if you follow 1000 people, at least 300 people should follow you back. Don’t practice aggressive following and follow certain type of audience. You can also use Twitter’s Advanced Search to find certain Twitter members: https://twitter.com/#!/search-advanced
2. Don’t be shy and upload your photo
People just loves to see to see how someone looks like. Don’t be shy and upload your photo on Twitter. People will perceive you as professional and as someone who should be taken serious.
3. Interesting bio is a turn on
Don’t forget to write interesting bio about yourself. Write what you like (and what you don’t like) and who are you, in general. Potential follower is able to have more insight on you. For example, if you want to promote your website about cooking, write that you love cooking and you should attract twitters who loves cooking.
4. Share useful and inspirational content
Share quality content on your Twitter. Potentially it will be retweeted and the more retweets you get, the more twitter users will see your tweets and they might follow you to see more quality and interesting tweets from you. Build audience and slowly create good quality content, but don’t spam your followers. Don’t retweet anything you see just to look active on Twitter.
5. Keep your tweets short
In case that your tweet gets retweeted, you should keep it shorter so your followers might include username in tweet(in my case that would be @Webmagznet). Tweet shouldn’t be longer than 130 characters in case that you get retweeted. The more retweets you get, the more people who aren’t following you, should follow you if they notice you are sharing good and quality content.
6. Reply to others publicly
Be active and reply to others publicly. Also, don’t send Direct Messages if is not needed, rather publicly reply on someone’s tweet and be sociable.
7. Promote your twitter account on Facebook
If you got Facebook account, you might let people know about your Twitter account.
