How To Increase Twitter Followers

Unless you’re a celebrity that receives up to a million new followers a day, there’s a good chance that you’re wondering how you can increase your followers on twitter.

The best way to get more followers on twitter is to tweet! As simple as this may seem, a variety of studies have shown the more you tweet the more followers you will gain. By tweeting, you should post every single day, whether it’s a picture, a quote, a retweet, or the status you put on your Facebook or other social media site. The more you tweet, the more visible you are, and in turn, you will increase your twitter followers. How To Increase Twitter Followers

When you sign up for twitter you will be able to link your email and other social media sites as well. Use this to your advantage and start following people you know through these links. It is much easier to be followed by people you know initially, until you have developed a strong twitter presence. To maximize your twitter followers, go see who your friends and followers are following.

Use your interests to search and follow others with similar interests. For instance, if you enjoy photography, search for this topic and follow as many as you can. You will increase your twitter followers instantly by following users with the same interest as you.

Increase Twitter Followers

One way to increase your followers on twitter should be a simple one but it is often overlooked. Twitter is a social media site that survives off interactions. Therefore, don’t stop at just following others. Interact with them on a regular basis. Of course you’re wondering what you say to them. Look at what they have commented on and status’ and pictures they have posted and start a conversation. Their followers will see this interaction and you will receive even more followers. Also, another way to maximize your twitter followers is by participating in Follow Friday or more commonly known as #FF. This is a time when you help promote the profiles of your followers. Start with the most recent ones that have followed you and mention as many as possible on those Friday’s. In turn, the one’s you mention will also participate and mention you, resulting in more people following you.

Twitter is a very fun and engaging social media site and there is no reason if you follow the steps above that you can’t be raking in the followers every day.

Hi Nancy,

There is no ground to disagree with you. Twitter is definitely a great communication tool and if you are always silent you can never expect any follower. More you tweet more you get followers!

At the same time, I wonder why you skipped to mention some tools that helps you to get more twitter followers. I’m afraid if you intentionally left them or you think they are not valuable.

Like, you can use #hashTag in your tweets to attract more targeted followers. Tweeting with hash tags invites more followers than tweeting barely.

Similarly, there are tools like Twiends that can offer you some quick followers. Though there is a huge risk to fall in pray of completely targeted followers and to the extreme of fake followers, but if you know how to use the tool efficiently, I found it as a great place to increase your follower number quicker.

Thanks for the interesting discussion. We’ll keep in touch.

    MK Sam December 24, 2013

    Thanks for replying Nancy. I will try my best to do this job from now.

Priyank Pandey December 23, 2013

There was a good technique that follow someone and that person will follow you back. But it is not working now. If we will try it for more followers, twitter will block that account from where we are trying.

Swapnil December 23, 2013

Hello Nancy
Thanks for this informative article, yes it is true if you will follow back to your follower, new people will definitely follow you.

Don’t stop at just following others and interact with them on a regular basis. These are some practical ways to leverage the numbers of your followers on Twitter. Engagement really matters and it could give you a good outcome. It is also a means of branding and gaining their trust.

I found this post shared on, the Internet marketing social networking site, and I “kingged” it and left this comment.

Hello Nancy,
You are right, we usually follow our favorite persons on twitter but forget to do conversation with them. I will surely do it to increase my followership …. thanks for these tips…

Riya khurana December 25, 2013

if we really active on twitter and interact with whom we are following then there is chances to get more followers.
Happy Christmas

Hi Nancy
Sounds like a plan. I have been getting loads of new followers in the last six months but I still think I can improve leaps and bounds by engaging more. After all, that is what social media is all about right?
#FF is also something I could start doing, until now I haven’t
Have a great 2014
