Get More Twitter Followers

Written by

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 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! 🙂

  1. Hi matt,
    Great post for social network buffs, The thing with these networks is that they are always changing and it's quite a challenge keeping up with them.
    I found that the best policy is to stick with about four core networks so you can concentrate your efforts and give better value to your fiends and contacts.
    I have hooked up to you in FaceBook and subscribed to your blog with BlogNetwork, look forward to reading your posts. 🙂

    1. Hi Bill,
      I agree, I tend to concentrate on just 2-3 for my "internet marketing" blogs, mostly just PlugIM and Sphinn, as they are "on topic" for my content, so any visitors are far more likely to be targeted.
      I have in the past experimented with StumbleUpon traffic, but generally found it not to be worht while for this type of blog.

      1. Hi Matt,
        You hit the nail on the head about Stumble, allthough i still do the occasional stumble( if you stumble something that catches the eye be prepared for a ton of traffic) I concentrate more on Delicious and FaceBook as well as MBL.
        I will have to give Plug IM and Sphinn a go, if they are more targeted then it makes sense.
        Have a Beer on me 😀

  2. Hi Matt,

    I must get more into Twitter - rather ashamed of my follower number. There's a problem at the moment though, I couldn't add you to follow.

  3. Wanted to know how can one integrate what one writes in the tweets and facebook to be postings in their blogs too? Is that possible or do you have to do it manually?

    1. Hi Mariane,
      Alex King's Twitter Tools will post a digest of your twitters to your blog for you, and there is a facebook twitter app that will do the same for your facebook updates.
