How to Get Twitter Followers Automatically
Sometimes being an expert is a matter of knowing experts. This tip is one of them. As you know blogging is part of the social media family, even though most people think of Twitter or Facebook when hearing that term.
I am an expert level blogger, even though I learn at least one new thing about it every day. I’m pretty good with Facebook too. Twitter on the other hand is still in my experimental sandbox, so I can share whatever tips I learn when I find them out.
I got a tip from real estate blogger Larry Cragan about Twitter. I tested it and it works.
I now know how to get Twitter followers automatically!
Larry writes on his Facebook business page:
Twitter calls this a hash tag: # You might call it a pound sign. Whatever. When posting an article in twitter you can use the # to identify it for searches. Ahah, like a tag does. So use it in front of your tweet and use it for searching.
Besides using “keywords” in my tweets, I’m now using these tags. I got 16 new followers today just by using hashtags.
Three tips I’ve learned about Twitter hashtags:
1. Don’t use spaces in the words. #salt lake city only tags “salt.” Use #saltlakecity instead.
2. Commas are not necessary. You’ve only got 140 characters! Use #salt #lake #city instead of #salt, #lake, #city.
3. Use a URL shortener before you tweet for extra space. My URLs are based on my page title, so sometimes they’re long. If I run out of space, I can use bit.ly or another URL shortener to free up space for hashtags.
By using keywords in your tweets and hashtags, you’ve got a surefire way to get more Twitter followers automatically.
