I just received a new follower on twitter this morning. He sent me a direct message thanking me for following him back and offering this tip on a way to gain new followers quickly. I’ve been using twitter in a haphazard fashion for a little over 2 years. I’ve seen some pitches like this before. I’ve never tried them. I’m not sure what value there is in adding a large number of people that you don’t actually engage in discussion. For instance, what use would it be for me to add someone who sells health and beauty supplies if I don’t have anything in common with them. But, today, I’m in a mood for adventure. This is the text suggested by tweetergetter for emailing:
Hey check this out…
I just found this site that shows you a
way of getting 1000’s of new followers
on twitter, I just started using it
myself and its starting to work
Thought it might interest you.
I’ll refrain from spamming my contacts with this but, if you are interested in trying to increase your twitter audience, perhaps you’ll click through and try it yourself. Let me know what your results are and I’ll post my progress in a week or so.
