Some people are using Twitter to follow their favourite celebrities, brands, football teams, businesses, colleges and others. This type of people don’t usually tweet. Below are some of the reasons why you will probably get more Twitter followers.

Twitter users usually use the hashtag to search for tweeps who like their favourite things. So, it’s likely that you will get more people that share your interest to follow you on Twitter if you are properly using the hashtag in your tweets.

Another popular means of getting more Twitter followers is through funny and humorous jokes. Remember lots of people on Twitter like a blend of serious and funny stuff.
But make sure you keep your content original for the most part because the originality of your tweets will make more people to like and follow you. So, if you’re funny, you should have no problem finding new followers.
