Twitter is a social media app that has gained quite a nasty reputation due to the prevalence of trolls. Many famous people have quit the app after coming under fire from the often uncompromising trolls on the app.
Yet, Twitter can be a glorious app to be on and even succeed on as a social media influencer. In fact, succeeding on Twitter is often a lot harder due to the fact that of all the major social media apps – Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Twitter, it has the fewest users. This means that gaining a huge following is a tough ask.
Here is how you can improve your following and increase your influencer on Twitter.
Be funny and original
Twitter is an app that rewards people who are witty and have a great sense of humor.
If you think you are witty, then focus more on making your tweets funny and relatable to your followers. Funny and witty tweets will often result in your followers engaging more with it, including giving it that elusive retweet, which increases engagements.
Once you have found your funny bone on Twitter, it is now time to be consistent. Going viral on Twitter once is no guarantee that you will gain followers. In fact, many accounts that go viral once will often be saturated will replies and likes that don’t translate to followers.
To ensure you get followers then, tweet consistently. Tweet throughout the day to capture as many people as possible rather than rushing to tweet at the rush hour.
Engage more than you broadcast
If you are looking to promote your personal brand or business, then tweeting all the time about your brand and business will likely push people away.
Instead, focus more on engaging with your followers and new people interacting with your tweet. Laugh at other people’s jokes, laugh with your followers when they laugh at your tweets.
That way, you build an engaged online community that will be instrumental in driving traffic to your page.
Follow relevant trending topics
From politics to entertainment to just everyday twitter shenanigans, always be at the front foot and take advantage of them.
Now, of course, you don’t need to make a funny tweet on a trending topic about death for example. Choose the topics that align with your brand as a person and engage with those. This gives your page visibility.
Twitter is a complicated social media space and this might take longer than anticipated. So be sure to stack a lot of patience.
