Easy enough?


Well, not quite…….. Once you have your TWITTER account is opened, that’s when the for most people, the challenges begin. It’s a very very simple concept, but like a Rubik’s Cube, unless you know WHAT to do, you’re going to soon be scratching your head.

  1. Want more followers? Simply increase your engagement with existing followers, and your followers will reTweet and recommend you to new followers. As a famous Twitterer once read… It’s not how many followers you have, it’s how many times you get reTweeted.


  1. Here is a basic Twitter tip, to get your juices flowing:

Secure your Social Username across as many social networks as you can. This tool may help: Knowem.

Establish a “Twitter Personality” or style. It’s well worth listening and observing other Tweeters that you find interesting to help you plot your “personality strategy.”


Ultimately your goal is to be 100% YOU – a real person – only notch it up bit; be MORE of whatever you are. Perhaps MORE humorous, MORE edgy, MORE informative, MORE social, MORE sexy, MORE original, MORE controversial, anything except… MORE obnoxious!
