How to rapidly increase your twitter followers?
I want to rapidly increase my followers on twitter .
want to use white hat methods only .
Kindly advice . heard the twitter directories do get you followers , but is it legal , is it like SEO for Social?
Use relevant keywords in your tweets. This will help targeted followers find you. For example, if you run a spa service, use keywords such as "massage," "pedicure" and "facial" in your tweets. Try SEOclerks, many freelancers on this site provide twitter followers at a cheap rate.
I agree with Chad Thompson- you don't want to buy followers and the reason is that you want people who are interested in your specific niche so you can have a meaningful conversation with them.
If you are promoting products and services this is even more important.
So back to your question. I believe the best way to build your followers quickly is to find people in your field/niche that are considered a center of influence.
You can then look at their followers and follow those people.
There are some that won't follow you back but many people will.
I made a practice of adding people everyday and I now have 62,000 followers.
I also talk to people that are following me and re-tweet what they are posting.
People love that!
Add interesting and relevant content regularly and watch your follower list grow!
Your bio is a well described paragraph that will tell others about what type of person you are. Most will check this before they decide to follow. Feel free to use as many hashtags as you want. We found four hash tags to be the best when placing in the bio section. A lot of users will search for tags today. It will be an added bonus if you were chosen as a result. There is also another quick option , that is to buy followers from sites like SEOClerks.
For a wordpress based website use a plugin called Tweet Old Post - this creates a tweet from your blog articles to be tweeted at set time intervals You can select the blog categories to be included or excluded. This allows you to automatically send out content at different times to allow you to reach an audience that normally would not be possible if you were to do it manually.
Additionally, use tools like Buffer/Hootsuite to schedule your tweets for the week at different times again to ensure that people on Twitter get to see it - after all once a tweet is off the screen in your Twitter feed, people dont really scroll to find it - you have to make it to their Twitter feed again and again till you send it out at the perfect moment for when they are in a reading frame of mind:)
Running a promoted follow campaign can help to build a following but this won't rapidly increase your followers unless you have a large budget.
Building followers that are relevant to your brand and help you achieve your social goals is a much better solution. Share quality content, have a product or service people want or need and they will naturally following you. They're also more likely to share you content with their audience and recommend you.
I managed Kia Motors global twitter for the past two years. If you just want the follower number up - to get a rapid increase you should consider using Twitter paid products. If you want to do it for free then you need to tweet retweet worthy content and try to get powerful accounts to retweet you.
How long that takes depends on your content, timing and social media skills.
As mentioned by everyone, get some good stuff to tweet.
Tactically, tweet is a few times since not everyone reads them when you do publish it.

Unless you're famous the best way to rapidly increase Twitter followers is doing something crazy or our of the ordinary.
Other than that you can try getting yourself listed in directories. If you tag yourself properly then you have good chance of getting targeted followers. However you wont see a huge increase using this method.
Another thing usually tried by brands is Twitter contests. You can try a service like Rafflecopter so your competition can go viral. If you offer a good/expensive prize then you'll probably see a rapid growth from this but the quality of the followers might vary.
Another methods is to use some Twitter software to find the right followers. For example a software like TweetAdder will help you find follower based on keywords, location, language etc. This way you have a targeted list of followers so there is a high chance of them following you back when you follow them.
I have covered these methods and more in detail in a blog post. Do check it out if you're interested. http://rumblinglankan.com/2072/increase-twitter-followers-fast/
Compelling content: give people a reason to want to see your tweets. Information, deals, interesting and/or funny comments or images, inspiration. And, add hashtags ## !
I'm going to completely disagree with buying followers. It's fraudulent and people can tell. It damages your reputation. The key to getting followers is to provide create content. If you read a great article, tweet the link. And when you tweet, tag people in them so they see what you wrote and may retweet it, and follow you. People use Twitter for information. So focus on giving them quality information. I have over 5000 followers and I've never pitched a thing. Maybe 5000 followers isn't a lot, but every single one is interested in what I have to say and respond by contacting me through my website. I provide great content, they are interested in following me, then they contact me to work with them. Be authentic. No shortcuts in this game or you'll be exposed. And only then you'll realize cheating the system never works and you always be exposed eventually.
John, read Jon Thorsteinsson's and Neal Schaffer's comments. Then visit https://copromote.com/ and sign up for free. WHY you want to increase is irrelevant, because in Social Media audience is everything- as you already know. Your message is meaningless if you're shouting in an empty room!
Good Luck and Carry On,

According to a recent Forrester report, what works best is a mix of owned, earned & paid.
Owned: Have an optimized profile & send out good & relevant tweets regularly
Earned: Follow relevant people, use hashtags, reply, RT etc. = engage
Paid: Pay for promoted tweets or promote your account
I saw this article the other day. Maybe it helps :)
I am not a great tweeter but I do get many,far too many requests from other tweeters to be you followers. Accept one that you think is useful and you will get a display of similar people you may be interested in. i am sure that you know that already.
You have to put in the work. Good things come to those who work hard and achieve it. The best way to gain Twitter followers is to put in great content. Content is king! The better content you post, the more people will follow and retweet.
Hi John- remember that it's all about the quality of followers, and not the quantity...I represent a bevy of pop culture icons in social media, and can share with you that the #1 best practice to growing your community at Twitter is to be yourself, have something relevant, useful and interesting to say, and you'll grow your network. You don't mention what you do, or what marketing/branding message you are trying to position, but in 140 characters (using relevant #hashtags) you can have your messaging directed to those most interested (you want people to follow you that support your branding/messaging)...Yes, there are always going to be apps and people that want to game the system, but you need to establish your brand first.
Think of it like Match.com for growing your network-DEFINE WHO YOUR TARGET followers are (target market), and then IDENTIFY where they are..what common traits/keywords do they have in common with you? Follow and converse with those in your target, and you'll be on your way...
My first question to you, John, is why do you want to rapidly increase your twitter followers? What do you expect to accomplish by rapidly increasing the amount of followers? For one thing, do you have any idea just how worthless the majority of Twitter followers are? Do you have any idea how many Twitter handles are bots, or fictitious accounts that will offer you no value whatsoever? If your goal is to gain a wider audience, I wouldn't approach it by trying to rapidly increase your audience as quickly as possible. That is not an organic or productive way at expanding an audience that actually cares about your product. I don't believe in shortcuts. And I don't believe in supporting companies or people whose goal it is to rapidly increase their followers. Good luck to you.
Hi John ~
WHY do you want to rapidly increase your Twitter followers? Engagement and value is much more beneficial, even to a smaller audience, both for you and those who follow you. Besides, having a huge number of inactive or fake followers (the first being real users who are no longer actively Tweeting), renders the number of followers meaningless on many accounts. I often wonder whether those accounts that have 40k followers but only 350 Tweets have simply purchased them.
Follow (!) the advice others have offered here about following people/companies in your niche, strategic use of hashtags, mentioning people by name, endorsing followers you like to others via the #FF (Follow Friday) feature, and most importantly, Tweeting relevant, useful — and, when appropriate, humorous — content that helps them, and you will see your follower count increase organically over time, with people who really want to see what you are Tweeting. Good luck!
