    RooBeeposted 12 years ago

    Just started a Twitter account. I have one follower and really, it's quite pathetic! I found the lovely blondepoet there and am now following her but wondered if any other fellow hubbers would like to share their Twitter identity so that I can follow them as well.

    Tweeting is quite new to me and I definitely feel like the new kid in class so having some chums there would be nice. Also, any tips, stories, advice, or even semi-coherent ramblings regarding Twitter is welcomed.


    ps- I'm queenroobee there, should u care to find me. RooBee was taken as a user name (usurper!) and I kind of like the sound of "queen roobee"...

      I just started a twitter account Yesterday and I now have about 45 followers. You have to follow friends with like interest and you will get followers back.  Start off slow and once you updated about 50 times you can start following everybody that has the same niche or interest as you do.  I have one twitter account that go over 350 followers in 1 day from 920 to over 1400.  Believe it or not I spent 27 dollars to learn how to get followers and it is working. This ebook shows you how to do it the right way to start slow and establish yourself for a few days or a week and then you can start growing fast. A set of videos I got show you.

      1. How to setup your account and add a unique background for free.

      2 How to add a auto responder.

      3 How to follow users on keywords automatically so you have followers interested in what you are interested in.

      4. How to unfollow users bulk wise

      5  How to make some money.

      6  How to send feeds to your twitter account automatically.

      It works

    Hey RooBee smile

    I Twitter. Kinda. I'm there, same name. I'll add you. Proba you can hook up with other hubbers that way, there's a few I follow big_smile

    No tips I'm afraid. I just tweet. Nothing fancy tongue

    I'll add you to twitter.
    There are people out there just trying to sell and spam so beware.
    If you're selective through hubb pages you'll find a lot in common with fellow hubbers as we also link to our hubs and articles we've posted on our other sites etc.  Makes for interesting reading if you have the time.

    Thanks everyone for replying. For some reason my password for Twitter is not working (guess it was too late last night when I set it up, probably misspelled it) and it won't let me reset. Aaargh!!

    If all else fails, I'll just start a new account seeing as I don't really have much going yet anyhow.

    When I work out my self-imposed issues there, I'll find ya'all.

    Happy Twitting, or tweeting, or ...ok I'll stop before I become offensive. smile

    I like using twitter to stay up to date and to promote my blog and hubs. I find it a good way to let people know about new posts or new hubs. It give them a link they can go check out when they want where they would normally just forget about it. my nick name on twitter is beermugworld. I like to keep it simple or else I too forget passwords and user names.

    Hi Roo,

    I've been a Twitterer for about a month or so. It is interesting but my time for all these new sites is limited. Reading some personal twits of strangers is really funny!

    This me anyway:

    livewithrichardposted 12 years ago

    On May 11, I put together a hub on how to get twitter followers and in less than a week I have gained 900 new followers using my own advice.  One of the things I should have put in the hub is to not only post your own articles.  Self promotion is good but if you want to keep follower you need to post more than tweets of your hubs... People want to see pictures and videos, they want to see jokes and build real relationships.  If your always "look at me, look at me," they will look away.  Anyway, if your interested in using some of the tools I used here is my hub: Any questions just ask.

    Tweeting is great fun, but for the love of all that is good in the world, don't just tweet your hubs. People on twitter get real tired of self promotional spamming really quickly...
