Many Twitter Followers Can Spread Your Tweets Further Into Twitterland

Engagement Vs. Many Twitter Followers

Engagement rules on Twitter right? I’ve always said that and still believe it fully. But what if your tweet go re-tweeted by someone who had many Twitter followers? What would happen? I had seen it happen a few times and stored it in my memory, but when I saw it again yesterday I thought I would share the action that follows it for you. Of course I did a little more research since and found more examples to share with you below that you may really enjoy. (Note the re-shares.) These may get you so excited to pump up your Twitter action today, start getting many twitter followers and your tweets tweeted further info Twitterland.

 

 

Notice how fast 5 retweets came from Charity’s re-tweet?  In a matter of seconds I saw 5 retweets appeared. I checked all the profiles and saw how many followers she had and realized what just happened. She had many Twitter followers!

“Engagement may rule on Twitter but having many Twitter followers can sure help.”  This this! 

 

Who Started The Chain Reaction With Re-Tweets?

 

When someone has 50,000 followers or more like Charity something happens. It becomes like a snowball in action. One tweet gets retweeeted and then another and another. Before you know it you have 5 retweets in no time flat. I am a big fan of engagement, don’t get me wrong! BUT if you have a small following with high engagement how will that tweet snowball into more? Unless you have that engagement with someone with a lot of followers it won’t reach all of Twitterland, not even a fraction of it. Having many followers does help achieve that but it takes time. There is no easy pass!

 

How To Simply Get Yourself (More) Many Twitter Followers

  1. Be Active on Twitter – Sounds so simple but it is not always the case for many people. Be sure to have a mobile app if you are on the go. Use tools like the Buffer, Hootsuite, Tweetdeck or other hundreds of tools out there to keep you connected.
  2. Follow Great People in Your Niche – Follow and re-tweet. Don’t be afraid to engage with them. If they don’t ever follow back put them in a list. Lists are a great way to highlight awesome peeps, keep you focused on Twitter and it also keeps a great follow ratio for you. Check out how I see who has unfollowed or who has not been on Twitter for months. No need to follow folks who are not active. 
  3. Always Engage – You must engage! If someone tweets you or RT’s you – respond. Thank them. Show them the LOVE. It’s never to late to respond, of course the sooner the better. I’m always grateful for a response even if some consider it late.
  4. Have A Eye Catching Profile – Be sure to include keywords and something personal about yourself on your profile. I love weather and have included “wanna be meteorologist.” I will tweet about weather during weather events. Always use YOUR Photo, never use an egghead or goofy image. Keep it real!
  5. Change Up your Tweets – Don’t just tweet links, tweet some quotes, tweet with images, and most of all have some fun so you stay engaged. Once you get the hang of it you will NOT get bored tweeting. You will make friends from all of the world to engage with.
  6. Don’t Give Up! – To  grow a large Twitter following it takes time. It is like planting seeds. Keep on planting, watering and fertilizing and eventually the followers will come. Too many people give up way too soon.
  7. One Last Note – Buying followers is never a great idea – they don’t last and may not be targeted. I’ve read many bloggers rave about TweetAdder but I’ve seen several (not all) of them not engaging on Twitter. I tweeted to them more than once as a test and they never responded. That’s not how I would want to grow my following – how about you?

  • Lisa, that must have been so much fun! :-) I’ve had similar experiences, although on a smaller scale, when sharing recipes. It’s amazing how it can escalate in such a short amount of time. I foresee more of the same for you. Your content is so helpful!

    Hi Lisa,

    Congratulations on that girlfriend! Isn’t that exciting! After reading your post I sure am motivated to be more social! I just went back to Hootsuite Pro so I can access my social media accounts for both accounts. You’re right in that it makes it so much easier to be accessible.

    I had the same thing happen to me the other day. The University of Phoenix retweeted a post and got several retweets from that. I checked their profiles and they had thousands of followers…that was awesome to see.

    Thanks for sharing these tips. Engagement is still key because that’s what gets the RTs and Shares rolling by our Tweeps with thousands of Twitter Followers.

    You are the Queen of Twitter girlfriend! No one rolls out Twitter advice like you do! Have a great Thursday! Stay warm!

    Hi Lisa,
    This is a very interesting topic and I agree with all the points you made.

    Twitter is one of the best and most effective social media sites out there and, it can really get you lots of traffic and exposure if you do know how best to use it.

    I also agree with the case of following and having many Twitter followers because, the more you have them, the more your tweets will be spread.

    I use an awesome tool called manage flitter to manage my Twitter account thereby unfollowing the people that are not active and those that are not following me back.

    But, in a situation where you followed a very popular person with lots of followers and they didn’t follow you back, what will you do?

    Thanks for sharing Lisa.

      Thanks Theodore, That one is good tool – manage filter. I’ve used it in the past. There are so many and we all have our favorites I think. With those type of peeps Theodore I would put them in a list. Make a creative name for a list for them and add others like them. Continue to re-tweet some of their relevant stuff and try to engage. That’s about the best you can do. Maybe mention them in a post and embed a tweet and let them know. Comment on their posts. I hope that helps Theodore and love to know how you make out with it in a few weeks, okay?

    Wow. I just got my eyes opened on this one. I love to tweet. It’s fun to see what people are up to and I learn SO much when I click links of friends. Like you advised, I have the app on my phone. Now when I’m on a break, waiting in line, or just anytime – it’s easy to see what everyone is up to.

    I did not realize how important ratios were or about lists. When you added me to your list, I followed the link here!

    Hi Lisa

    I’ve been using TweetAdder for a while now and I’ve grown my Twitter followers from about 800 in mid September to 1,367 today by using it.

    I know people that have increased theirs much more quickly by using it. I just don’t want to be too agressive about building followers!

    I’m also using HootSuite to connect in real time. I completely agree it’s important to engage and thank your followers. Get to know as many as you can. How people do that when theyv’e got 50,000 followers I have no idea!

    I’ve just invested in Nimble too. It’s a CRM that integrates with HootSuite. Finally, I also now subscribe with a business account to EverPost.

    By doing all of those things, I’ve increased my Klout score from 54 to 59 in the same timeframe as growing my Twitter followers.

    I do think having images in your Tweets can really help and that’s what I plan to start doing more of, at least within reason.

    Thank you for sharing some valuable advice Lisa that I know many people will find very useful indeed!

    Have a great weekend.

      Hi Tim, well you are NOT one of those that does not respond on Twitter with it. Good idea not to be too aggressive as Twitter could put you in their “jail.” I gain aobut 50-100 per every 2 weeks doing nothing but engaging with various folks there and getting to know some bloggers in my niche etc. I think when you have 50,000 the lists become imperative. With over 7200 followers now I use them often myself. Oh I do remember reading about Nimble, do you really like it? Yes, images are wonderful there. I always look at tweets with them more. You are welcome Tim and have yourself a great weekend with the snow there. Still just rain here though the temps have gone from 60 to 35 overnight.

        Hi Lisa

        I’m just really starting out with Nimble but I’m finding it useful to sort out who I communicate with and who I don’t.

        I think it will be invaluable l in the future if and when I decide to offer any products or paid services.

        For now, it’s a really useful tool to help me connect with the right people and not forget about the people I speak to the most on social media.

        It also links in nicely to HootSuite and Gmail.

        I’m jealous about the snow. Ours went as soon as it arrived. The temperature has risen steadily the last couple of days.

        The river running through the town was close to bursting its banks a few days ago and a couple of the bridges across were closed.

        The trouble is, I live on one side and the school where my kids go is over the other side! We just managed to get back across before they closed them!

I still like using Tweepi, it shows where they are located, the last time they tweeted and if they are still following you or NOT. I have to get back into Hootsuite, it sounds like they have more features of late too. Our snow melted but we are supposed to be getting more today like 1-3″ . That doesn’t sound good about the rivers Tim, stay safe there and have a great rest of the week.

    Absolutely agree, Lisa. You need both to really hit that sweet spot. Engagement is absolutely important but even better if you have an active, large following. I’ve had a couple of tweets that were retweeted with someone with a very large twitter base and the number of RTs their original RT created was huge (at least for me!) And it brought a number of new visitors to my blog, which is even more important. I’ve slowed down on actively looking for new people to follow and I need to get back to doing that as well.

I also share images, quotes and some good information every day and that gets shared a lot as well. You also know me, I’m always chatting it up with people. I just wish I had more time on all the sites.

    That’s so cool to have someone with that kind of following share your tweets. That’s when you know what you’re doing is spot on.

    Hi Lisa,

    Having read this post, reminds me that Twitter is an outlet that I need to be utilizing more often. I think by default most of us (not all) like to use Facebook as a social media outlet to engage but what I’ve come to realize over the past year is that Twitter can give you traffic that Facebook cannot give you. The way I see it is that all social media sites are created differently. All engagements will be different, audiences will be different as well. It’s always a good idea to play within the rules of the playground if you decide to grow your social media following. Great post Lisa! Love it!

  • Lisa am still building my twitter following so I haven’t gotten to a situation where I will get 31 retweet for a single tweet. Wow I would love that. It takes time though and I know I will surely get there soon.

    What thing have come to know about twitter though is that quality engagement will increase your followers quickly. That’s why it’s important that when you read a post by someone on twitter, you should write a unique tweet and that person would love it.

    At this point of time, I don’t have much to measure, in terms of twitter success. Almost of all the stuff I share are content from other blogs, rest are either quotes, questions or my thoughts/observations.

    I don’t get that many RTs (most of the ones I have get these days are for the quotes I share). As for my strategy, I strategy right now is spreading my tweets throughout the day (and sharing more stuff when most of my followers are online – Tweriod helps me with that). In the past, I have participated in Twitter chats and have got good results with it; I am planning to get back to it, once I launch my blog.

    Anyways, thank you for the tips, Lisa :) Appreciate it! Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

  • Cole Wiebe says:

    Hi Lisa,

    I would agree that strategic engagement with a smaller audience is almost always more effective than circulating a more generic message to a large network. It’s when you don’t have the time to interact much that the leverage of a larger audience can really pay dividends.

    Hi Lisa; Thanks for sharing your Twitter expertise! I’ve been on Twitter about a year now and must confess to lack knowledge of its finer points. I always try to make sure to thank people for sharing posts and also try to share as many posts by others as possible. Difficult to find the time sometimes……As for posts going “viral” (is that the right word?), I’ve seen it happen with one of mine on Stumbleupon. Somebody popular must have shared it and now it gets multiple views every day. None of them come by to comment though, but I figure any exposure is good, yes?

      Hi Debbie, so many people think Stumble Upon is great for views but let me tell you this – the bounce rate tends to be very high, that’s why you are not getting comments. I do not use it often anymore because of that. A high bounce rate can be a bad signal to Google and effect your ranking and exposure online. I would spend more time via Twitter and eventually you will see it pay off big Debbie. Sharing is key and enteracting too. Do you use lists? I find them very helpful. You can focus on folks just for travel or just for dogs, etc. And that way you don’t have to follow them all. You can pick and choose more. Also Triberr is a great tool to use with Twitter for your blog. I believe you are on it. I visit there daily and am a member of 60 tribes. That too took years to build upon. And in the beginning I didn’t see any difference but I stuck with it and it paid off as well. Have a great Sunday ahead Debbie and see you back on Twitter.

  • Hello Lisa,

    Retweets are a great way to drive insane traffic especially retweets by influential people with a lot of followers in your niche.

    Usually, what I do to get that magic effect is always to reply or tweet directly to an amazing person I am following and ask him a question. In that question, I cleverly embed my tweet! I do this when that person is online and has just tweeted something relating to one of my recent posts.

    Thanks for sharing the awesome power of twitter and retweets. Do have a great day!

    Hi Lisa,

    How cool is that? One retweet from someone who has a large following can snowball. Gosh, I do need to get back into action with Twitter. When I was on Triberr I made so many new friends. I would take the extra mile and once a day visit someone in a group I didn’t know, went to their blog and commented and connected with them.

    Then, I committed myself to a huge project and had to bow out. But reading this really gave me that itch to get back into the game. Twitter is pretty powerful. Look at what one retweet has done!

    Love the examples you embedded here. I’ve often found tweets include fun, stats, quotes and news stuff tend to get more attention too.

    I have to agree with the fact that snowball effect is very predictable if we have large number of following. It happened to me some times as Twitter friends, including you, RT my tweets to spread the news out loud :) Yet I’m growing very slowly and no anticipation of 50K or something so far though :mrgreen: I always loved the interaction / engagement and buying followers will never be in my list either, Lisa.

      Hi Mayura, you are thinking of 2014 too? I’ve got to work on my to do list for it. Yes, quotes and fun stuff helps as well as breaking news if related to your followers. Nice to know I could help you with that :) Yes, buying followers a no-no. Bonus Tip: Engage on Twitter chats – I always gain followers after one and meet other Twitter lovers in my niche. Thanks Mayura, it’s my FAV place to be online as you probably know. My week is not super but hoping it will get better my friend. Post to follow on that shortly. I hope all is well your way.

    When I first started on Twitter I would engage with those I followed and who followed me but when my numbers went up I just found it overwhelming to try and engage with everyone. I have to start that up again though thanks for the reminder!

    I love Twitter and have a decent amount of followers, but I’ve been lax in engaging on Twitter over the past 6-8 weeks. I’ve been a lot busier in my real life and trying to devote more “family” time and a little less online time. But I’ll get back in the groove better in the new year. :)

    Hi Lisa
    I have seen the same thing again and again. And let’s face it, the engagement often decreases when people get that big.
    So more followers is a big help to your social media life.
    Of course, I do not strive for less engagement, but I am a big believer in balance.
    I have also seen the same thing starting to happen with my Pinterest following. Today only 350 or so, but this morning it was my biggest traffic source for social media.
    Thanks for sharing such valuable info

      Hi Ashley, I hope the engagement does not decrease for me as my followers increase. I really believe engagment is key but the more followers the more chance of it too. A catch 22 in a sense. I find with Pinterest is that you get some old stuff repinned. I had one today repinned by many from a pin from last year. I’ve gotten a lot there with retail site and not so much with blog yet though my following is over 1000 now. Are you on Pinterest daily now Ashley? Thanks for your input and have a great rest of the day.

        Hi Lisa
        Well you can always engage as much as you like, but as your followers increase, you time does not. So it is inevitable. I saw that Gary V said that too. Sad but true fact of popularity.
        Pinterest. Well I have a few strategies that perhaps I should blog on, as they do help. Yesterday I got more visits than Twitter. And I only have 300 followers. 5000 on Twitter. It does not normally happen, but there is potential.
        Stay tuned

    Hi Lisa

    Having lots of followers helps immensely.

    I have over 90,000 and most of my website traffic comes from the site.

    I’m very proactive in building my network – I use ManageFlitter to follow people who use certain UK business networking hashtags.

    Its a great tool and costs buttons

  • Hi Lisa,

But literally never tried to increase that number by this or that. I will try to men my strategy for better results.
    Thanks.

    Well twitter is very great platform for sharing thing but it will help only if we have lot of followers or our tweets get re-tweeted. I must say it will surely drive more audience and help to boost more traffic. The tips you’ve mentioned are really informative as I wasn’t ware of most of them.

    Thanks for sharing

      Hi Anil, welcome to Inspire to Thrive. I love Twitter if you couldn’t tell :) It does help to have more followers but some with a smaller # can be of a tight niche and still work well. It’s not always just about the quantity but quality too. No good if you have spammers following you, right? It’s interesting to see too that the more followers you have the more you get, it’s a snowball effect. So I always tell people to be patient growing their following. Thanks for coming by and commenting. Have a great day and a Happy New Year!
