Ok just opening a discussion on twitter followers and see if I can get some tips or maybe even give one.
I am a firm believer in the power of twitter and social media. I always create my accounts on the social scene and ping.fm them. I always use twitter and the rest to market myself. Each of my projects get there own seperate twitter account. This is tedious since you have to have followers to use it effectively.
Now, I have thought about using software but have not. The way that I get twitter followers is very simple. In that I find a twitter account for that niche that has the most or what I think is the most followers already and I follow them and there top followers. In this way I see an explosion in my email usually within a few hours.
Let me know the best way that you get followers and if twitter works for you.
