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 ## !
