It seems I must be doing something right with Twitter, even though I don't twitter everyday, and sometimes even miss a week or two, my twitter followers count continues to climb...
It seems the automated BlogMyTweet.com plugin that I have added to my main blogs (like this one) does help to even bring in some traffic to the blogs as well, so it appears that I'm not just twittering away to myself, phew!
I've recently added a twitter "Follow Me on Twitter" graphical button to my blogs to see if they help to pick up even more new "followers" and it does seem to be helping.
Here's three of the best sites I've found with free Twitter "follow me" buttons you can use: -
Although the days that I seem to have the most new followers sign up is the days that I make several tweets, especially those where I end up having a conversation with other people...
I've also tried to avoid the temptation to post "irrelevant" tweets, like: -
"I'm making a cup of organic free trade vanilla falvoured green tea and listening to the new Metallica album this morning"
as I know those kind of tweets tend to put me off following other people, unless they mix in a LOT of real content, although I have to admit one or two may have slipped in... 🙂
please start following me on Twitter @MattGarrett, I need to get my "Grade" higher! 🙂
