My method of getting (quality) Twitter followers

There are a lot of ways of getting Twitter followers. When Twitter allowed the option of auto-follow-back-those-who-followed-you, many spam accounts were created just so that reciprocation is met. And in fact, many lists were created for twitter accounts who auto-followback so that those who wants to increase their follower counts can add these fellows.

There are however some orthodox ways to get the kind of followers you are targetting. Twitter, like any website, thrives on the golden rule of creating good content.

-Follow followers of twitter users who are like you. Eg. you are a chef, find other chef twitter accounts and follow their followers.

-Use tags to tweet about topics you are interested in and soon people who are interested in your topics will find you.

-What if your intended audience do not check their following list very often? Doesn’t help that the official Twitter app does not allow you to approve/disappove followers. I have also found that retweeting their tweets with a personalized content is far more effective than sending them a direct message. My DM box is filled with hundreds of messages the moment I start mass following accounts. And it is no secret that twitter management apps and subscriptions out there is So retweeting with a personalized message would definitely make you stand out. Eg. Apple is fixing their antenna!! RT @yflcsandi iPhone 5 to have these features:



-Add your twitter profile to a list on Twibes. You can add yourself up to 10 lists.

-Make your own list, distribute it around on twibes/twitter/email/facebook and ask for contributions. “Anybody else you can think of to add to the list of ‘Singapore’s Food Bloggers’?”

If you would like to build your followers very fast and crave on all the auto-followers I mentioned above, here are the lists I found:
