Hence, there are some people that are doing something different to increase followers organically that you may not know of. So here are a few steps to take which may not put you in the leading position but could definitely gain you some more followers on Twitter.

Maintain a strong profile

Building and maintaining a strong Twitter profile is very important. Through this, people get to know who you are and what you do and if your Tweets are interesting, they will definitely be checking out your profile as well.

It is good to have a brief and smart profile that includes your interests and if you can, add a link to your website or other social media accounts there as well.

Are you worth following?

Good tweets will get you more like and followers, for obvious reasons and vice versa.

Tweet things that are trending and/or are of relevance including what interests you. People gain large followings on Twitter because their posts are either informative, funny or entertaining.

Follow, Retweet, Repeat

Hence, leave a link to your twitter handle on your posts on other social media platforms and provide the same on your website – if you have one – as well.

Celebrities and social media influencers

Follow and retweet celebrities and at the opportune moment tweet about them – whether an article or a comment or anything. ‘Mention’ them in their tweet so they know about it and, again, if it’s interesting enough they may share it with their millions of followers which could get you a couple of new tweeters.

Among the very many tools and methods you can apply, two very important things to remember is to be consistent and entertaining – even if informative – but the main thing is the quality of the content you put out.
