Sometimes you don’t have to work really hard to get a thousand twitter likes or followers. A little engagement with your current followers, some participation in twitter trends and some bit of self-marketing can actually make all your twitter followers want to share your posts and invite others to follow you as well. The first thing you should do however is work hard to become an influencer on the social network. Be the ‘go to’ person on your area off specification, so that everyone one will want to read your tweets before believing what the blogs and news networks say.
After that, start showing interest on what your twitter followers say about you. Ignore the negatives, or at least address those issues if they are genuine, but mainly focus on the positive things they say about you and show your appreciation. That way more flowers develop some form of ‘emotional attachment’ to you and will want to give you twitter likes on everything you post.
