Twitter guide checklist

Starting to Twit

  • People want to know they are communicating with a person, not a company (or fictional character!).
  • It is a good idea because it will give people a great impression of who you are and why they should follow you.
  • Doing so will get your name out there and build your own followers.
  • Soon enough, you will build your reputation and following.

How to get followers

  • Keep your following/followers ratio near 1:1.
  • Participate in conversations.
  • People get turned away if there is nothing to see in your Twitter profile.
  • People like to know who they talk to.
  • It will show your personality in a more detailed way than the short bio in your Twitter profile.
  • They will do the same to you and your name will appear to their followers.
  • If there's a Twitter meetup in your area, make sure to be there. You'll find many new followers there.
  • Don't be afraid to say what you think.
  • That doesn't mean you have to tweet 24/7, but try to do it every day.
  • Balance is the key.
