Tools To Help You Grow Your Twitter Following

Many new Twitter users struggle to grow their twitter following in the beginning. Unless you’re famous or  some kind of celebrity, getting new useful followers can be hard.

When you look at some people on Twitter they have 20 000, 50 000, some have 100’s of thousands of twitter followers. How do they do that?

Rest assured people with that many followers are probably famous. If they have done it through real time hard work. Then they are pretty good and should be rewarded.

Quality or Quantity

Having so many followers does not come naturally. The question I often ask is, are those quality followers? Do those people actually engage with all those thousands of followers?

The answer is, probably not. The question you have to ask yourself is, do you want quality over quantity?

For me I want to have people following me that will have some kind of input, and engage and benefit me.

I know you can’t choose who follows you, but in the beginning when you are building up your following you might have a tiny bit of influence.

Tools of the trade

To help you and I out in the quest to get more quality followers and to follow more quality people there are some tools out there that will aid us in this quest.

FriendorFollow
This tool shows you who isn’t following you back. Enter your username to get the game on.

Manageflitter
Similar to FriendorFollow but more advanced. It has a bunch of filters that will help you to better manage your account.

Socialoomph 
You can set up an auto DM and welcome new followers. Be very careful when using auto DM features. Here you can check out your social standing via graphs and reports.

Twiends 
You can actually use this to grow your stats on Twitter, Facebook, Websites and YouTube. You can also find users by common interest, country, etc. Here the currency is seeds. You follow people to get seeds so that others can follow you using those seeds.

Twellow
Use this tool to follow people via specific geographical areas or categories. You can search for users by city or from a directory of categories or interests.

So let’s get Twittering. Grow those followers responsibly.

By the way, what are your thoughts on Twitter followers. Do you go for the large numbers, or are you more selective?
