You do mean the 170 character tweet, don't you Kirsty? Sounds like you have a large following there. Thanks for sharing with us. We could all do with some more traffic.
I have somewhere between 800 and 900 followers (its not a static number because people follow/unfollow regularly) which is not an awful lot really. Its about the quality of your followers - the comment box is too small to explain. i might write a hub
I know some have 4.5.7k followers. For anyone to maintain that no of followers they would have ti automated with custom software surely. Or they spend so much time on it, they would not have much time to write; Yes, No?
I noticed that those accounts with tens of thousands of followers don't actually tweet that much. It's more the quality of tweets. I.E. genuinely helpful info etc. Probably, they have the right kind of followers too.
Lots of these accounts with unrealistic amounts of followers but no tweets are accounts that people have built up then sold. My twitter posting is fully automated and there are things you can use to build followers, its not the way to go though
Thank you Kirsty for your latest posting. It explains a great deal. Surely you do not use it to get traffic just for your HP writings. Probably some other writings as well. I reckon such a large committment to tweeting would take much time or money
I used to write on a few different revenue share sites so thats how i got into it, i also have two blogs. I do have a paid subscription for auto posting but i will probably cancel it soon since i dont write much now Will likely go back to free one
Thank you Cedric Yong for sharing with us. I do hope you will find something useful to you here as well. The idea is to share a pool of knowledge. I did not know any of yours, so I shall be trying them.
StumbleUpon will let you away with a little bit of self promotion as long as you balance it out well enough with other activity. I used to get a lot of traffic from them but I gave it up for reasons I cant remember
Yes, balance is very important in SU. As long as you have other submissions which are well received, it will tolerate you submitting your own site to an extent.
