Here's how you can get more followers and grow your Twitter network...
Like every other human being who cares about her online reputation, you feel good when you see the number of followers in your Twitter account shooting through the roof, don't you?
You're on the edge of glory, like Lady Gaga would say. But getting thousands of followers on Twitter is certainly not an easy task; otherwise everyone would be able to do it. And you can't!
Getting 1000s of followers it's a tough "quest," but some tricks are here to help you get a steady rise in the number of natural followers. And by "natural" I don't mean "I follow You and You follow Me" type of useless followers nor #TeamFollowBack. It's not a contest, people!
How to Get More Followers on Twitter
So, what can YOU do to get more followers on Twitter? Wouldn't you like to know... Following you will find some good advice on how to get more followers, tips and tricks I normally use to increase my Twitter follower count.
So, you got your 10 ways on how to get more followers on Twitter but since I'm also on Twitter @VaultNews and maybe you're thinking on following me, I would like to talk a little bit about my Following Policy.
@VaultNews Following Policy
A following policy? Seriously?! Yes. I am now establishing my Following Policy which is a simple statement of why I will, or will not, follow someone on Twitter. You should read it if you want to understand why I'm not following you or why I have recently unfollowed you. At the beginning of 2009 Loic Le Meur, the founder of "Seesmic," suddenly unfollowed 23,000 twitter users to start anew. He imposed these criteria for following:
otherwise I won't add you."
Now, I'm not going to do what @Loic did because I have too many interesting people in my Twitter stream to even consider such an action. But I am going to unfollow a lot of people to cancel the noise. Unfollowing is part of life on Twitter. It happens every day and it happens to everyone, including you. So, don't take it personally.
A long time ago I used to follow 1000s of people, the vast majority of whom I probably never interacted with or wasn't interested in their tweets. It was all about the numbers, you see. And it felt good... But, as I grew more mature I started to see things in a different perspective, and all that noise (especially from spammers) became very irritating.
I turned to Twitter to get the news on what's going on in the world, so I can then use this information to create my next article on this very blog. But I couldn't do it very well since THE NOISE was stopping me from getting what's important. I was only missing for 5 minutes and when I returned there were over 100 new tweets! Sounds familiar? So, I am now constantly refine who I follow (or unfollow) to achieve the right mix of people who tweet about things that really interest me.
If I unfollowed you, then I'm sorry, but know that it's not about you. I am simply interested in other things than you are. Learning in the 21st Century is not about what you know, but what you can share. And I am looking to either learn from others, connect with like-minded individuals or simply to have fun. I need to know that I am not an echo on Twitter, as much as my followers need to be confirmed that they are not alone.
IF a lot of people, including myself, unfollow you on a daily basis - you can find out about these things at who.unfollowed.me - then I have one piece of advice for you: STOP PRODUCING NOISE. You are incorrectly assuming that people want to read everything you put up and thus wasting both our times.
Of course, I am aware that we're all guilty of following more people than we actually care, but I'm doing the best I can to separate value from the noise. So, the next time you share something on Twitter, think about it for a second before hitting that "Tweet" button. How necessary is that message to anyone but yourself? Can you connect in any way with your followers? Also, do I care what you eat or are listening right now? The last one was a rhetorical question of course.
Finally, I am using follow.cost to find out how annoying will it be to follow a user on Twitter at any given time. If you have more than 20 recent updates per day then here's the answer to why I unfollowed you. Sorry, but I honestly don't have the time to go through all your updates every. single. day.
To RECAP, I am not following or have unfollowed you on Twitter because:
On the other side, I AM following you on Twitter because:
Should you follow me, please introduce yourself (this increases the likehood that I will follow you back). Thanks for reading and share this article if you found the tips&tricks on how to get more followers on Twitter even remotely useful. Again, you can follow me @VaultNews, but I can't promise I'll return the favor. Have a great day! ;)
