We’ll first discuss few free twitter tools to manage your twitter account  to grow your twitter followers.

My best advice to you to get more twitter followers is this: write tweets that people want to read.

Let’s dive in..

What is twitter? Why grow your twitter followers?

Twitter is a social networking site and it’s all about 140 characters (which is called “Micro Blogging”)

For any blog, if you want to get more traffic and better promotion you should use social media like twitter, facebook, StumbleUpon, digg etc.

Twitter is the BEST social media platform to promote your blog and  drive massive traffic to your sites. Or you can simply use Twitter to boost your online reach and presence.

Currently there are more than 500 millions people are using twitter.

How to Get Your First 1000 Twitter Followers?

get 1000 twitter followers fast

Step 1: Write your twitter bio for OTHERS, not YOU.

Whenever I land on someone’s twitter profile, all I see is “self-promotional” bio’s.

Let me ask you a question?

Why should I care? 

I don’t care if you’re a comedian, dancer, blogger or Internet marketer.

Ask these questions before writing your twitter bio.

  • Why should someone follow me on twitter?
  • How others can benefit if they follow me?

If you want to get more followers on twitter then try this tip: make your twitter bio “helpful”

Need any example?

Let’s have a look at my twitter bio.

rahul kuntala twitter

Use your bio to showcase “what you can do for others”

Step 2: Show your face

Don’t be generic.

People follow people, not eggs (if you know what I mean) ;)

Make sure your profile pic is looking funny, interesting or professional. Figure out what you want to convey to your twitter followers, then use the corresponding looking picture.

Step 3: Start following others

Follow blindly whoever is in your niche. But how to find the similar people in your industry?

Simple.. Use twiends tool. Enter your interests and start following the people. BTW it is a free tool.

[note]If you just want more/anonymous twitter followers, then try following all without using any tools like this – but I wouldn’t recommend it. What’s the use if you have anonymous twitter followers who don’t share your content? You should have TARGETED twitter followers to get most out of it right?[/note]

Step 4: Spend “active time” to get your first 1000 twitter followers

No one’s going to know your name on twitter without spending active time on it. Get to know others.

Be interesting.

Share quotes and make sure you’re either educating or entertaining your followers on twitter. Remember, people browse twitter just for two reasons: entertainment and education!

At least for the next one month, spend quality time on twitter to get your first 1000 twitter followers.

Use these quick tips to be active on twitter

  1. Follow the famous people in your niche
  2. Retweet their tweets (regularly)
  3. Use hash tags (viz #blogging #twitter #first1000twitterfollowers etc)
  4. Unfollow those who don’t follow you back (even after 5 days or 1 week) by using tools like tweepi (it’s a free tool)
  5. Tweet your best stuff (quotes, your best posts, videos or whatever you feel is good)

Repeat the process until you get your first 1000 followers on twitter.

You may find it difficult in the beginning, but believe me, you will surely get 1000 twitter followers.

Points you should keep in mind to get your first 1000 twitter followers

Don’t be self-promotional: No one likes to follow you on twitter if you’re self-promotional. The best way to get more twitter followers is this: start promoting others stuff. Tweet others links, send messages and stay in touch with the “power users of twitter”. Then it becomes easy for you to grow your following on twitter and very soon others also will also promote you. Win win.

Stop following too many people at a time: Avoid following too many members. You can follow 300 followers in a day (it’s not an exact figure, you can follow even more – till 1000 followers/day). But I suggest don’t do that.

When your twitter figure reaches 2000 and if you don’t have enough followers (more than 1800+) then you can’t follow anyone else. Twitter will automatically stops you from following others. So go slow, start following others and tweet their stuff. Soon you’ll see twitter followers growing on your network.

A tip: Flush out all the people who are not following you back. Use tweepi tool (as mentioned above) to unfollow others.

Last but not least – track your results. 

TwitterCounter will show you how many new users you’re adding per day and Qwitter will email you when someone unfollows you after a tweet.

Over to you:

Don’t know where to start? Start following others in the comments.

Post your twitter name in the comments section and follow others.

  4. Hey, Nice Post !

    Talking about some finer aspects on Twitter Followers using Twiends is an old yet still to work method with the only problem of multiple followback to people, which is sort of ok while your are new.

    You can also try this tool :

    It allows you multiple as good as 60 follower in a single session and minimal followback in comparison to twitter ! is also a very active platform for Twitter Followers, Facebook Likes, Google 1+’s etc.

    All Social Exchange sites have copied YLK template but are not as successful as them as they have close 2-3K users online on each session with the option to get targetted users as well.

  6. Kuldeep Khatri says:

    Nice and effective tips, Buddy
    I will try them to Increase my Twitter followers.
    Cool one!! :)

  7. To be frank I personally don’t believe in using tools to get more followers:) As you said just tweeting something
    which is interesting or useful is gonna fetch you more followers. Also following
    people in same niche can help you get more followers cos they tend to follow you back.

    • Rahul kuntala says:

      Yeah I agree with your words. But few (especially the newbies) bloggers want their twitter followers more. So, these are the best tips to increase and to have fun :)

  8. In starting days of blogging, these ways of getting twitter followers must be applied because no one reader is going to trust you if you have very few followers.
    Thanks for the tutorial.

    Twiends is the best, although there are many following tools which give you hundreds of followers within an hour but all those are just robots, inactive followers

  36. Follow me @TechnoDoze
    The post iz nice

  37. follow @dkelly41 will follow back. Thanks!

  38. johnb23456 says:

    In fact one needs (at least) 1820 followers to be able to follow over 2000 tweeters. Do the math. Also unfollowing too many people in a day will result in your twitter being banned for what is known as “follower churn”. Aim to not unfollow more than about 20 tweeters in a day. Unfollowing more than about 50 tweeters in a day will almost certainly cause a person to fall foul of the twitter rules due to being regarded as a follower churner. Also you may not follow more than 100 tweeters in any hour, or post more than 100 tweets in a day.

  39. Hi :D I have a holistic clinic and would like some suggestions on followers to add to my twitter. Of course, following back would be great too!!!!

  40. Rebekah Peterson says:

    Good excersize, eating, and just life tweets :)

  41. Anonymous says:

    I’m a new anon with funny tweets (jokingly) dramatizing the lives of rich girls. Whether you think rich people are funny, annoying, or you are one and these apply to you, give me a follow! I follow back!

  42. Following others is a good way of getting their attention and getting them following you back. I would actually recommend doing a blog and creating content first and sharing your content on twitter for a bit before you start aggressively building up your following!!

  43. Never unfollow more than 30 in a day, your account can be at risk if you do. Lots of people have been suspended for aggressive unfollowing, defined as unfollowing more than 30 in a day.

  44. aishvarya says:

    Follow me, I follow back :) @aishvaryasingh1

  54. thanks, I have 760 followers with your tips.

    thank you very much for this article.

  55. I have over 1200 followers on instagram , but I’ve had twitter for way longer and I cant reach 300 . Everyone who follows , I will follow back .
    Instagram : Diceey_
    twitter : @Diceey_

  56. Great site. I liked your 1st tip and immediately updated my profile. You’re right, I had an “about me” profile that was too about me! It mentioned my interests and all the things I am which is ok but I changed it to show what I can offer.

    Changed from:
    “International Businessman. Love of Nature, Positivity, Music and a Good Book. Expat, Bilingüe, Reader, Writer, Breather, Be-er”
    “Lover of Nature, Positivity, Music and A Good Book. I Share Tips, Articles, Steps and Easily Digestible Info to Help You Improve YOUR Life.”

    Which I think will help to get more people. I just started about 10 days ago and am at 45 followers so I think I’ll be ok getting to 100 then on to 1,000!!
    Please follow @zacharykreid I follow everyone back (for now mwahahaa!!) PS – Rahul I have just followed you.

  57. @lucilioeliseu1 says:
