In this article I will reveal one of the simplest "tricks" to get more followers on Twitter.

But at start I will dive a little in my blogs past.

I started to blog on October, last year. Since my blog was and still is new, I was looking for more ways to drive traffic to my blog. And one of the options I looked at first was Twitter.

I even created a contest to myself, to twitter 30 days in a Row, and here you can find the results of my contest. In brief I got 22 visits to my site, form 37 followers.

Then I stopped to think about Twitter, created a bot what posts to Twitter.

There was no big difference in my Twitter followers since November, it steady was about 50 followers.

But then I decided to get more followers, by simple following other Twitter users, and whoila in matter of few hours I got some more 30 followers.

But there is limit for such following tactic, and the limit is 2000. You can follow 2000 other Twitter without limitation. But once you have followed 2000, you should have good follow/following ratio to keep on following and getting follower back.

Here is the quote from Twitter Help Center:

  1. Every account can follow 2,000 users total. Once you’ve followed 2,000 users, there are limits to the number of additional users you can follow. This number is different for each account and is based on your ratio of followers to following; this ratio is not published. Follow limits cannot be lifted by Twitter and everyone is subject to limits, even high profile and API accounts.
  2. Every Twitter account is technically unable to follow more than 1,000 users per day, in addition to the account-based limits above. Please note that this is just a technical limit to prevent egregious abuse from spam accounts.
  3. Accounts are also prohibited from aggressively following other users. Our Follow Limits and Best Practices Page has more information on Twitter’s following rules.

If honest, I'm not very found of this tactic, but in days when count means everything, you can at least tell your boss, wife or dog how cool you are, by having nice follower base.

Will it drive results for your website, it depends... You should follow related to you accounts, and who knows.

I will give more update related to question, is it really helping me to drive more visitors, when I will reach my 2000 limit, by now you can follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Reinis_Fischer
