5 of the Best Ways to Increase Your Twitter Followers

There are a variety of good ways to increase your Twitter following.  The first is the good "old fashioned" way.

  1. Write and respond to interesting Tweets - You just can't beat being active on Twitter and interact regularly with other Twitterers.
  2. Take part in Follow Fridays - Use #FF within some of your Tweets.  List your favorite followers in a Tweet and tell others to follow them.
  3. Retweet other people's Tweets - This is a good way of saying you like a person's Tween enough to reTweet it. Also, it gives them credit for the funny or interesting Tweet.
  4. Don't make every Tweet spammy - The majority of your Tweets should not include links or be simply reTweets.  This can be viewed as spam.
  5. Use other sites to tell people about your Twitter profile - Facebook, blogs, web sites are all great ways to increase your Twitter followers.

Twitter Directories

Twitter directories provide a great way of finding Twitterers and getting followers that may be interested similar topics.

There are several great directories.  Typically the listings of Twitter users are broken down by genre.

  • WeFollow has almost 1 Million Twitter users listed.
  • Twellow is also a very large Twitter directory, very similar to WeFollow.
  • Just Tweet It is very cool and a great place to list yourself.
  • TweetFind is smaller than the above ones, but is worth listing yourself.
  • TwitDir has a unique concept and provides listings of the Top 100 followed, Top 100 updaters, Top 100 favouriters, and Top 100 followers.
  • TwitR is also unique and displays Tweets from the top users.

There are several Twitter Trains web sites that allow you to get more followers by joining a train. You follow a certain number of people, then you will be listed for others to follow. Usually you join a ViP program to gain the most Twitter followers.

- A fairly old, yet effective Twitter train site. Use a URL shortener, such as, to list your referral url on Twitter.

TwitterTrain - Twitter Train to increase your following.

TweeterFollower - Another Twitter train for increasing your followers.

Twiends - It is free to join. It borders on being Twitter train and being something of a Twitter directory. Plus they give away points all the time, so you could get followers for no particular reason.

Follo - Similar to Twiends above. You earn points by following others. It is also free to join. - Sort of like Twiends, only not as user-friendly.

Social networking has been part of our system, deny it or not. And I myself admitted that I'm a fan of some social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook and Myspace. Well, it helps me communicate with my family and get updates with my friends. Social networking is unstoppable. It's a trend and we want to be part of what they called "social group". I'm glad to get more tips from you. Nice bunch of suggestions for my Twitter account!
