Many People of have confronted me with questions on how I have been able to grow my Twitter account to over 100,000 within a few years. what surprises most people is the fact that i still get good followership even when it seems i am idel or offline. Above all the desire of people to grow their followers to a good numbers have been a great challenge. In this article i will be writing on three ways to grow your followers with ease.
• Follow generously: I consider this as the first rule to getting followers on twitter especially for new users. As a new user on twitter nobody cares about who you are or what you have to offer except if you are a celebrity.
The instance you launch a new account, twitter automatically suggest a list of people for you to follow. This contains the handles of celebrities, personalities and established companies. As a person I consider that list as the wrong set of handle to follow.
My reason been, they are probably never going to follow you back even if you decide to ask for a follow back. So what I will suggest is for you to skip that process.

This also works interchangeably as it relates to other platforms, in the sense that you can invite your new followers on twitter to check you out on other platforms.
• Tweet consistently: consistency is the key. Your timeline always need to be active. What really wins the heart and trust of people is consistency and availability. The more content you put out the more engagement you drive and this will definitely results in harvest of followers.
