I have spent the last several weeks trying to discover the secrets to finding and keeping followers on twitter.  I have learned quite a bit along the way but I still have a lot to learn.  I am going to spend the next few posts discussing some of the things I have learned.

There are literally hundeds of different tools out there to help you find the perfect group of followers at the push of a button.  While these will certainly add to the number of people you follow I have not found one that has brought me the right kind of followers yet.  In my opinion, the best thing for you to do is simply go to and search for the subject that has the type of followers you are looking for.  Pick a couple of the top people in that category and start following the people they follow.  You will want to take your time doing this however so you don't follow a bunch of people that haven't used twitter in 9 months.

If you are new to twitter don't get frustrated too quickly.  There will be times where you will send tweet after tweet out there and begin to wonder if you are talking to yourself.  Eventually as you get enough followers you will begin to get more and more replies to your questions and comments.
