A fuss free guide to using Twitter and Twitter’s latest features:
1. Learn how to auto follow accounts on Twitter
If you’d love to increase the number of individuals who follow your Twitter account, it’s well worth learning how to auto follow accounts on Twitter. As if you turn Twitter’s auto feature on, you’ll be able to automatically follow every account that follows your account.
How do you auto follow on Twitter? In order to activate auto follow, go into your Twitter settings and tick the check box to follow back new people who follow the account. Once you’ve ticked this box, make sure to press the save button on the bottom of your settings page.
Just keep in mind that you’ll need to approve all the new accounts which you’ve followed, within 24 hours. As if you fail to do so, the accounts which you followed automatically will be unfollowed. This is to comply with Twitter’s new rules.
2. Allow Twitter to search for your friends using your email
If you want to make sure that you’re following all of your real life friends, colleagues and family members, you can allow Twitter to use your email contacts, in order to find your real life contacts. As a bonus, if you complete this step, all of your contacts who haven’t followed your Twitter account, will easily be able to start following you on Twitter.
3. Use Mixx social network in order to find potential new followers
It’s well worth using Mixx, which is an up and coming social media network in order to find potential new followers. As you can use Mixx to network with individuals who share your interests or who happen to live in your city. Once you make new friends on Mixx, you’ll be able to link your new friends to your Twitter account.
4. Don’t be afraid to double post
If you want to share a post which exceeds Twitter’s character limit, there’s no need to try and shorten your Twitter post. Simply split up your desired text into two Twitter posts. You can even label your posts 1/2 and 2/2, in order to let your followers know that you’ve split your message up into multiple tweets.
Remember that it’s a much better idea to split up your message into multiple posts, instead of using slang or abbreviations, that some of your followers may not understand.
5. Retweet other people’s posts, in order to get your own posts retweeted
If you make the effort to regularly retweet other individual’s tweets, that suit the theme of your Twitter account and your own interests, the individuals who you treat may return your kind gesture, by retweeting one of your tweets. Having your tweets retweeted is extremely useful as your tweets will be viewed by strangers, who may choose to follow your Twitter account.
