Are you satisfied with the number of Twitter followers you have?
Have you thought that you should be more along the lines of Lady Gaga or Justin Bieber with the number of people that follow them in that social media circle?
Maybe it’s not what you’re saying on Twitter, but how you’re saying it.
According to RESEARCH DONE AT GEORGIA TECH, maybe you just need to reevaluate what you’re Tweeting about and look at how you’re saying it in order to increase your follower count.
Assistant Professor Eric Gilbert studied what people were saying on Twitter, and concluded the following as TWITTER STRATEGY you should follow:
- Don’t talk about yourself. 41% of Twitter users do this, but it tends to be a turn-off rather than something that encourages followers
- Don’t use so many hashtags. The more hashtags you use, the fewer followers you will attract
- Don’t talk about depressing topics, like bad health or unemployment.
- The more negative you are in your posts, the less likely you will attract new people. Followers tends to like positive, upbeat threads
- Get 20,000 Followers, Get a Twitter Tattoo
- Twitter Users are a Bunch of Quitters… and other Twitter Usage Statistics
- Suggestions for improving your Twitter bios
- Who uses Twitter? Lots of people without a lot to say
