Getting Twitter Followers to Join a Facebook Group

    What's the best way of doing this? Tweeting doesn't seem to work. DMing all of them would be cool, but bad etiquette and could potentially lead to a banning.

    If they are interested in the group, and reading your tweets, a tweet will work.  So ask yourself, is it that they don't read your tweets, or that they don't want to join the group?

    DMing them will get your account closed for spam.

      Probably because they don't read the tweet. A follower with tens of thousands of followers themselves has a low chance of seeing a general tweet, unless they are specifically tweeted to.

        Or possibly because they're not genuine followers.

        Twitter suffers from the same problem as HubPages when it comes to followers.   People will follow you on both sites with absolutely no intention of reading what you post - they just want you to follow them back.

        Ask yourself, how much feedback or interaction you're getting from those followers on Twitter - are they real?

          Most of them are in the DIY, trade, industrial, retail and manufacturing field. Now many retailers follow, presumably because they want attention and retweets of their ads. However I think at least some of the followers who regularly re-tweet would be interested in joining a group. Probably I need to just target them.
