- For my blog account, I used Twellow which is the Twitter Yellow Pages but is outside of Twitter. Since most Bloggers enjoy reading other blogs, I did a search for blog and begin following others who blogged. The blog now has a huge following on Twitter but all followers did not become regular blog readers. However the blog readership has doubled since going on Twitter and being given to “best of the web”. The readership on the blog and Twitter should increase as I continue to check out the 94,000 bloggers on Twellow.
- For my business services account, I started by looking on Twitter for names of people I thought might be there and followed them. I also used Twellow categories to find people by how they classified themselves and TwellowHood to find people in my geographical area. All Twitter users will appear on Twellow, however you can expand upon your Twitter Profile in Twellow so people searching categories there can read more about you than the limited amount of text Twitter allows.
- Another tool I have used for getting followers is Mr. Tweet. You sign-up for and follow Mr. Tweet, then it checks the people you currently follow and suggests similar new accounts for you to follow. Mr. Tweet also has communities you can place your account in so new people looking to follow others in a particular community will see you there too.
You may want to note that if you get a lot of spam from a person or have a follower you don’t want. Twitter allows you to report that person as a spammer from your follower list under the tool drop-down by their account name. This is the fastest way to get Twitter to investigate their account and determine if they should be removed from the system. However, this does not prevent them form sending you more message. The best way to avoid a spamming follower is to find them in your follower list, click on the tool drop-down and choose Block. If someone gets several blocks then Twitter will also investigate them later.
