One of the questions I get the most about Twitter is about following and followers. New Twitter users see others who have massive amount of followers and feel the need to build a large following as well.
Some say the more followers you have the greater the possibility you have to be retweeted or recommended. I personally believe that it is all about quality and not quantity. You can build a huge following of people but how many of those people are actually going to be interested in what it is you have to say? If the following you build is truly interested, and engaged, they will definitely retweet and recommend you.
Connect with people who share common interests. It doesn’t matter if on Twitter to promote your landscaping or tax business. If you like a certain sport or type of music, for example find others who like same team or music group and follow them. Hopefully, they will follow you back. Also don’t be afraid to strike up a conversation with someone you see who is tweeting about a subject you find of interest that you may not currently follow or who follows you. You just might make a new connection out of it.
Having a large following is fine and dandy if you’re about numbers. To really make the most out of your Twitter experience, follow the people you find of interest, throw out the notion that bigger is better when it comes to who follows you, take part in conversations, but most of all be yourself and have fun!
