    Having a lot of twitter followers is not something you can achieve overnight. You need to put in a lot of efforts in order to increase your Twitter followers. The following are some tips on how to get more Twitter followers.



    1. Adding a Profile Picture

    Adding a profile picture is very important because it gives you a professional page. If people see that your profile don't have a photo, they most likely won't follow you because it gives them an impression that you are not serious. Your Twitter profile represents your brand. You must be consistent in your Twitter profile by using the same photo or logo you use on other social networking sites. The photo you upload should not be too big or to small. The standard size for Twitter profile photo is 70 pixels by 70 pixels.



    2. Write a Bio

    Besides adding a profile photo, you also need to write a bio. Since the word count limit for the bio is only 160 characters, you don't want to waste any space on writing things that are not related with your business. When writing the Twitter bio, you need to determine what is the message you want to send to your followers. You can include keywords that people will search for in your bio. People will be more likely to follow you if they see the relevant keywords they use in performing the search in the profile.



    3. Tweet Regularly

    You must tweet regularly so that there are activities on your Twitter profile. It is recommended that you tweet at least 3 times per day. There is no reason for people to follow your profile if you don't frequently update it with new tweets. The peak period to tweet on Twitter is before 9 AM and after 6 PM. These are the usual before and after work time when people will be available.



    4. Tweet Interesting Things

    There are a lot of things you can tweet about. For example, you can tweet about what you are doing currently. You can also tweet about an interesting event you that just attend. Instead of just tweeting text, you can also tweet images, and links. You can comment on other relevant news that are trending on Twitter. You must use a tone that encourage others to want to join your conversation. Re-tweeting a popular content can get people involved in the ongoing conversation.



    5. Follow Others

    If you want people to follow you on Twitter, you must follow others first. You should follow people with the same interests as you. If someone follow you, you should follow them back otherwise they will unfollow you.



    6. Promote Your Twitter Profile

    You should not expect people to find you on Twitter on their own. This is the reason why you must promote your Twitter name in every possible way such as business card, store sign, and website. Adding a Twitter following button on your website allows people to easily follow you on Twitter.

    @Zirkon Kalti@Zirkon Kalti Thanks for such an informative post. No doubt twitter is important to get traffic and high search engine rankings. People try to get followers by illegal methods thinking it will benefit their SEO efforts which is not true. The tips you have mentioned are really useful in getting Twitter followers who will actually impact SEO and traffic. Great post! :)

    Twitter follower can be increased by following others, promoting tweets and retweeting other tweets. Twitter is a good advertising platform that helps to generate good traffic for your website.

    You have mentioned nice information for editing profile adding an image that really increases follower rate. Retweeting other people tweets in the same niche will allow to get more followers. Tweeting regularly generates more followers and traffic as I observed this with travel profile on twitter.

    if you do cross platform sharing, you can promote your X social media platform on Y socila media platform. If you share your tweets on facebook, you can pfomote your twitter account on facebook. This way you can attract your facebook followers and friends to follow you on twitter. You can use other platforms to promote your twitter account. You can also buy twitter followers.

    If I wanted to draw traffic back to a blog, squeeze page, or forum, is twitter a better time investment than facebook? Or should I be on both? What about google plus or other social media? How should divide limited time between different options, and how does twitter compare with the other choices?

    Those are great ways to earn followers, instead of getting followers from services which is similar to authenticheats which makes followers as inorganic. I would be trying your tips to increase traffic on my blogs. I have a few followers now and I think I should be active.

    Adding videos can also improve the number of followers in Twitter since a lot of people would want to literally see results. Interacting with and re-tweeting other user's posts can further help in directing users to your page or account.

    Twitter is best platform to connect with your friends.If you want to have followers on twitter,you should make your profile attractive and do specify about your work and skills.
    Other than this follow others so that they follow you back and add images and videos on your timeline and retweet others posts so that people can notice you.
