HOWTO: Get More Twitter Followers [INFOGRAPHIC]

For many, Twitter is still a numbers game. Since the platform first opened it doors back in July 2006 a lot of users have been obsessed with accumulating as many followers as possible, often at the expense of basic social media essentials such as engagement and usability.

While it’s true that tactics such as churning and mass-following do ‘work’, inasmuch as your followers number will rise, the value of networks built in this way is at or close to zero, often because they’re made up of thousands of other churners and mass-followers.

And if you’re one of the frighteningly high number of users who fall foul of the many Twitter bad habits, there’s every chance that each time you update on Twitter all you’re doing is putting more people off.

If You Tweet It, They Will Come

A friend recently asked me what they should be writing about on Twitter.

They were frustrated that their tweets were attracting very few responses, and they weren’t getting many followers. And those that were signing on weren’t exactly of the highest quality. You know: power-quoters, bots, spammers, mass marketers and good, old-fashioned weirdos.

I’m going to share with you what I said to them. It isn’t my place to tell you what to write. Simply tweet about whatever you like to attract the audience that you want.

It’s that simple.

In just a few months (sometimes weeks), Twitter will make a judgement call on your place within the network. It will say to you: this is who you are. And it might think that you’re somebody that nobody should be following. So nobody will follow you. Celebrities aside, this is how it works for almost everybody.

The good news? You can fix this. Make a change. Make several changes. Play hard, but work harder.

All of sudden you’re getting followers. You’re getting reactions, and you’re getting out exactly what you put in. But don’t stop now – the sky, as they say, is the limit.

(PS. Eventually they stopped coming to Kevin Costner movies. And that’s because he stopped trying.)
