9. Be the first one to put up an important news.
This thing always work. When you’re the first one to reveal or put up some important news then your tweet gets more attention and it gets more and more exposure due to more retweets and replies. In this way you can get more twitter followers.
10. Make your profile look professional.
How can this be done? You can add a good profile pic of yours, a header image and a very cool bio which reflect who you are. And if you’re a starter with twitter then you will not get much followers as people don’t like to follow you when you have less followers or no followers at all. So get some free twitter followers or buy twitter followers at the starting time just to increase the count. You can get them easily from sites like twiends.com. And when you will have some followers you will get more attention. Anyone who finds you on twitter would likely to follow you as they will find that you’re somewhat popular and since you’ve some followers already so you must be a good one to follow.
