Here's how to get loads of followers on twitter and whatever your reason is, taking these steps will surely get you on your way!

Start following - The more people you connect to gives you a higher chance of getting friends. Follow as much people as you can and they will more than likely follow you in return. There are many tweeters who want to have loads just like you!

Use buttons - Use twitter buttons on your websites and blog posts. Be sure to make sure that they are working and that people can succesfully tweet your site. When people find something they like and share it, it can create a chain reaction where an exponential rise in traffic can occur. If 50% of the friends like it and all of their friends re tweet it, loads of people will come rushing in. 

Email - Why not send a message to all the people in your email list and follow the ones who already joined twitter? If you send them a link in your email for them to sign up then they will automatically follow you. Make sure you invite them to follow you and not just join. The more people you invite the more of a chance they will follow you. This tactic is used by many internet markets nowadays.

Find accounts and follow them - This is a good feature provided by twitter that you should make use of. You can find people who the site suggests, based on the tweets you make and the people you have things in common with. You can also find you exisiting friends on other networks, they will be sure to follow you if you are friends with them on another site. You can always type in the name of other people you might want to specifically follow. Some people follow really popular profiles to get more coverage. If you post in a thread where a famous person also posts, your tweets will be heared by the masses. Its good practice to do this every now and then

Buy profile - People buy and sell twitter profiles with loads of followers for some quick cash. Buying a profile with followers in your interests can be very handy, you can just rename the profile and upload proper pictures to make it legit. They can be found on places like ebay and other auction sites.

These are great easy ways of getting loads of followers, stick to your plan and get follwing yourself today! You can follow me, my account is set to auto follow, that's another one added to your list! Good Luck.

      Twitter is one great way to update your fans (if you are an artist or a celebrity of some sort), clients (to inform them of new products), and friends. It's convenient to use because so many android phones offer such ease in terms of twitter applications nowadays. However, I believe there's nothing much to be done in the site.

      Hubpages is still the best. Lol. :)

      Great hub! :D

      retellect, i wonder if you can explain how some people have more than 2000 followers. i'm thinking the limit changed recently. i can't follow back without unfollowing someone because of the 2000 limit.

      Looks like you just started your profile on twitter. Did you know that 60%-70% of everybody you follow will follow you back? You can simply follow those who you are interested in and grow you account at a very quick but natural rate just by following others. Don't forget to unfollow those that don't follow you back or you'll get stuck at the 2,000 following mark :-)

      I find the design of the Twitter profile to be critical. A nice design makes me want to follow.

      Great post, thanks for sharing!

      I have seen some people with more than 10,000 followers. I wonder how much time they spend on twitter.

      I really don't see the point of twitter. I think you end up wasting so much precious time.
