How to build a following on Twitter

This Twitter strategy comes directly from the author’s experience.

Think Lynsen: Building a following on Twitter: Strategies that work

I’ve been fortunate enough to experience some significant growth in both my personal and professional Twitter followings over the past month. My personal Twitter account has gone from about 175 followers in January to over 400 followers today (and growing – just overnight I got 10 more followers). My organization’s account has also seen a dramatic jump – we had around 30 followers in September and are now quickly approaching 1,000. Over the course of 24 hours at one point last week, our organization’s Twitter following increased by 150!

Granted, there are people out there whose follower numbers are growing by much bigger leaps and bounds – a lot of early adopters and celebrities – but I’m pretty proud of these follower increases and wanted to share some of the strategies I’ve employed that have made this happen.
