If you’d love to build a following for your Twitter account, there are numerous tips and tricks which you can use in order to boost your Twitter account’s popularity.
4 Twitter tips that will help you increase your following:
1. Find out the names of the Twitter accounts that don’t follow you back
Unfortunately it’s common for individuals to pretend to follow accounts, for a short period of time, only to unfollow the accounts which they followed, once their account has been followed back.
Thankfully, it’s relatively simple to figure out which accounts have unfollowed your account, by using an app to see which users have sneakily unfollowed your account. As there’s absolutely no point continuing to follow individuals who are using you to boost their follower count but are not willing to follow you back.
2. Change your settings so that you can auto follow Twitter accounts
If you don’t want new followers to unfollow from your Twitter account because you haven’t followed them back straight away, it’s well worth altering your Twitter settings to enable Twitter’s new auto follow feature. Once you’ve enabled auto follow, your account will immediately follow back all of your new followers. Which is extremely handy if you’re often away from Twitter or your smartphone for hours at a time.
You’ll even be able to follow back new followers while you’re sleeping. Which is useful as you may have Twitter users follow your account from different time zones around the world.
3. Choose your Twitter photo carefully
Although it may seem superficial, if you’re serious about increasing your Twitter following, it’s a wise idea to use a flattering image of yourself as your Twitter avatar. As first impressions do matter and if individuals find your avatar pleasing, they’ll be far more likely to follow your account and interact with your future posts. Especially if users find your comments on other Twitter user’s accounts such as celebrity Tweets.
If in doubt, you can’t go wrong using your favorite photo of yourself as your Twitter avatar. As ideally, you should feel confident in your Twitter photo. As regardless of what you look like, individuals are drawn to get to know people who are confident in their own bodies.
4. Reply back to individuals who comment on your Tweets
If individuals see that enjoy replying to your Twitter comments , they may be persuaded to start commenting on your daily Tweets. As it’s fun to follow individuals who actually read and respond to their Twitter comments. As some individuals simply Tweet a message and then fail to keep up with all of the comments which are left on their Tweets.
So if you’re determined to build a large, sustainable Twitter following, it’s a great idea to ask yourself the following questions. Do I have an attractive avatar? Do I respond back to my Tweets? Do I know who doesn’t follow me back on Twitter? Have I unfollowed the accounts which have unfollowed my account and have I activated Twitter’s auto follow feature?
