Twitter Following – How to Increase.
I have had a lot of emails recently regarding increasing your Twitter following so I have decided to post the details here, it is short and to the point, hope it helps.
The way Twitter works is that you follow people, and they follow you back, or vice versa. Unfortunately there are some strict limits applied. You can follow up to 2,000 people but after that you are limited to following only 1.1 times the number of people that are following you. So if you have 10,000 followers, you can follow up to 11,000 people and no more. There is also a daily limit to the number of people you can follow of 500.
The next issue is that a lot of people who you follow will not follow you back, so it is essential to periodically unfollow everyone who has not followed you back, then you can start adding followers again.
So, to increase your following you will need to follow lots of people (up to 500 per day), then you will need to unfollow all those who do not follow you back (I would normally leave it 7 days before unfollowing).
Using these basic rules your following will slowly, but surely, increase. This takes time and patience but as you get more followers the rate of increase will speed up.

I do offer a service to do all of the above for you, but this comes at a cost of £50 ($75) per month. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org/ if you are interested in this service
Hope the above helps and remember that you really have to be patient to grow your twitter following. If you follow the above rules then over time you will be able to build up a large following. There’s lots of ebooks and advice out there, and various tools, but the above is pretty much all I have used to get my 70,000+ followers.
