My Twitter following has not only come to a halt over the past few months, it’s gone backward.
If you want to be the opposite of me, which I am sure many of you do, then follow the following tips to not lose followers. Are you following me? Great.
You spam too much.
Every Tweet on your timeline is a promotional Tweet or some auto-post from Instagram that nobody cares about. Get a personality for your feed, it’s not an advertisement.
You don’t tweet enough.
Tweets have a lifespan of about 18 minutes. Then it’s basically lost forever thanks to how fast-paced Twitter is. You need to stay active to stay seen – so get Tweeting. Not just spammy promotional Tweets, either.
You don’t interact enough.
Force yourself into other peoples feeds by interacting with Tweets. Reply and join in conversations to get seen on other peoples feeds as well as those that follow you.
You are too selfish.
Stop sharing your own content only – share your friends, people who are new and need a boost, people who are established and share good stuff, things that make you laugh, things that make you think.
This gets you noticed by others, into peoples good books and also means your feed is a bit more exciting!
Now stop automating everything and start getting social.
Also, can anyone tell me if I am supposed to capitalise Tweets and Twitter and Tweeting? Is it Re-Tweet or ReTweet or Retweet or what?
