'Safe' way to get more Twitter followers

by asciscopecunia 35 replies
Hi guys,

Am in the midst of getting more twitter followers manually on 3 of my twitter accounts.

One of my twitter account just got suspended for 'aggressive following' activity.

Is there any 'safe formula' to follow more users without getting your account suspended?

Would really appreciate any feedback, thanks in advance

    Personally I have always kept to 200 follows max per day across all accounts.

    RT'ing and using hashtags relating to big time tweeters in your niche can also help well. Look into setting up RSS feeds on your Twitter account from Top Niche Leaders from their Blogs using TwitterFeed.com. In advanced settings you can include a suffix something like "via @biguserid. Works good for me. Have over 20,000 followers on my @Steve_SEO_UK account and I'm not endlessly clicking follow, follow, follow every day. Hope this helps.

    Provide something people want - good content or links will cause a mass following - and best of all, you dont need to constantly follow other people.

    Thanks,

      I was following about 180 people a day for a week before I got suspended. Lesson learned there.

      Perhaps I should follow less than hundred a day?

        My understanding is 100 to be followed everyday and not more than that. I am successful in getting good number of followers and have crossed 1300 followers in about 15 days.

          I think 100 is the right number to follow everyday. And just following will not keep your followers intact, but you have to post every day and use the hash tag to get your required geo location followers.

          Am going to give it another try. Lesson learned *no more than 100 a day*.

          Thanks for all the advice you guys!

        as long as you do not follow AND unfollow too much in ONE day you should be fine. I usually follow about 900 ppl per day, but i wait about 3 days before following any more!

    Maybe you should start following fewer people when the account is recently created. And you should add some content to it on a daily basis or once every 2-3 days. Start following less than 100 people on the first day of creating your account. That way you shouldn't raise any flags from Twitter.

    Don't follow more than 200 a day. This has been effective for me so far! But start off with following less than a 100.

    What are you trying to achieve by having lots of followers?

    It's much better to have 100 followers who take action on your tweets than 100,000 followers who are just robots / spam follow accounts.

    Use twiends to get more followers, you follow people to earn "seeds" and you can offer those seeds to gain more followers, good luck.

    - be active and tweet at the right time
    - post interesting content ( tweet something that catch your followers interest)
    - tweet trending topics
    - follow people with several active followers and @mention them
    -use hashtags in your post to make it searchable.

    Just make positive compliments to others and ask that they follow your tweets so that you can keep in touch.

    You should not follow more number of followers continuously.
    That will consider as a spam. So , some accounts will be suspended automatically.
    Keep twitter account in your website , if you have one.
    You can increase your followers by this method.
    And you can advertise twitter profile url using ppc methods.
    If you are following less number of people , follow only same interest people like you.

    So that you can increase your followers naturally.
    Post tweets regularly, for not loosing your existing followers.

    Twitter says you can add 400 per day. But in reality, stick to 150 until you build about 1000 followers than you can go up to 250.

    I would stick to 250, except if you post very relevant stuff on a daily basis, re-tweet, and look like a real human at all time.

    I use tweet adder. Use it very slow in the beginning, follow 100 people a day, no more. Once you reach 2000, you can up to 200 or 300 a day. I have 30,000 followers doing this.

    If you got suspended by aggressive following then everything is there in that sentence, just take it slowly and steady

    I read somewhere that the magic number is 100 also. however, i've definitely gone over that on a few days with no problems, so maybe it's about the consistency.

      Here's what I did:

      It was for a jobs blog. I found tweeters in the HR segment and started following 100 followers a day and also tweeted some good stuff every day.

      After 8-10 days I had more than 1700 followers.

      So, don't spam, unfollow those who don't follow back and offer something nice.

    Start posting viral stuff, try to figure out what people want to read and see, you don't need to follow thousands of people, just give them what they want and you will naturally get more followers

    The best way to get QUALITY followers (ie. not bots) is to be active on Twitter. Post tweets. Retweet other posts you find interesting in your niche. Reply to people. Engage people. Contribute value to your followers.

    Tweet regularly. Gain a following on Twitter by participating. Send out at least 1 tweet a day. You can also try SEOclerks, many freelancers on this site provide twitter followers at a cheap rate.

    Just follow the following steps -

    1. Create a Flashy Profile Picture.
    2. Give a meaningful and a solid Bio.
    3. Have a Flashy Background which displays your message.

    Once you have done these steps let's move out to the world-

    1. Search for your niche in search box - like internet Marketing
    Ok
    2. Now find out someone from the list who has lot of followers.
    3. Go yo his Twitter account.
    4. Follow his followers to the tune of around 40 in the beginning and later can scale up. Do not be aggressive as that ruin your reputation as your followers must me more than your following always and have a long term prospective if you have 40 followers in a single account daily then it is like 120 targeted followers for you in single day. So be patient and follow this rule.

    Ok

    Post so equality tweets. You must post 2 out of 10 tweets which has a link to your squeeze page.

    The Most Important Part - You should work like a solution provider. Do not run after sales initially just build relationship first and ten sales will automatically happen and money would flow automatically

    I hope this solves your problem.

    Try to link your twitter account with other sites as well. Which could post your content and the possibility will grow more to have a good number of followers.
