#1). Share common interests

Twitter is a valuable networking tool, whether it’s for business or personal use. Most of the Twitter users are on the microblogging platform to meet and make friends with people that share or have the same interests.

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.


#2). Inspirational, positive and helpful tweets

Some Twitter followers will probably follow you because they find your tweets inspirational and really helpful. Twitter is another avenue through which people can get inspirational quotes as well as links to motivational articles written by other people who have shared similar life-changing experiences.

So if you are good with “words” that can motivate others, your Twitter followers will turn to your tweets and positive thoughts to inspire them, and they will be happy to share your wisdom.


#3). Funny, humorous stuff

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.
 


#4). Informative tweets

Lots and lots of people are looking for information on/about one thing or the other and Twitter is one of the top sources of information that most people use. This is why people with Twitter accounts that share useful and relevant information are among the most popular on Twitter.

So, if you post informative tweets that some folks find really useful, it’s likely that they will follow you so that they can be able to get more of your tweets.
 


#5). Friendship

Just like Facebook, lots of people on Twitter are there to make friends after all it’s “social” media where people socialise and meet others.

Whether it’s your neighbour, your colleagues at work, your former schoolmates or your long lost friends, Twitter offers a great avenue for people to connect, reunite and make friends.

  1. Hi Elechi, these are some good tips to build your twitter following. I’m not sure I agree with the “funny stuff” because it’s not necessarily the thing people want in their NEWS stream, but maybe it’s a good alternative for special lists.

    I totally agree on the other points, especially the positive and helpful tweets. If you ask me it’s also good to have a great profile (portrait and bio) and a fair amount of hashtags in your tweets to get noticed.

      I think you are very right on this according to your opinion. I still personally believe that some people out there like to read funny tweets such as jokes, and these kind of people usually tend to follow people that tweet funnily!
