How do you get more followers on Twitter?
It’s the age-old question, and while the number of followers that any user has on everybody’s favourite micro-blogging social network should never be considered indicative of quality of content, like it or not people can and will judge you on the size of your Twitter network. And while only the very famous can expect to boast Twitter tallies in the millions, there are things that all of us can to do make our Twitter content more attractive to potential subscribers.
First, engage your readers. And if you’re a brand, this means customers. Find out when people are most receptive to your tweets, and schedule your updates accordingly. Use photos and other visual elements (such as Vine) to boost interest. Keep your messages short – tweets containing less than 100 characters have a 21 percent higher interaction rate on average. Use #hashtags (sparingly) and proactively ask for followers to spread the word, by encouraging them to retweet and share your content.
