Create Your Twitter Content
Unlike Facebook, Twitter offers a limited amount of content you can post (140 Characters). It allows you only a few characters to be contained in your post. That is why, many people in Twitter use the social media site to express their feelings and the latest happening in their day.
Moreover, Twitter posts can also be used for business. It can be a big help to increase the traffic in your blog and/or website.
Create posts that are convincing, relevant and timely. If your posts are interesting, many people will follow you and your posts. The good thing about the limited length of post in Twitter is that it gives you more room to post teasers about stories.
Therefore, people who are interested in your teasers will click on the link and will be directed to your page to read the whole story.
However, the world of Twitter moves fast. After an hour, your posts are considered ancient. To save time and effort, you can create beforehand a list of what posts you will post in a couple of days. Also indicate the time when you will post your contents. By doing this, you will organize your posts that they always look fresh and interesting to people.
Get More Twitter Followers

Make Yourself Known
Let the people know that you exist. You can do this by following anyone that follows you. Some people will not follow you if you do not follow them in return.
Follow and Comment Big Names
Tag large businesses in your tweets. This will take you to the front of their fan base. Hence, you will be easily seen and noticed by many. They can click on your tweets and follow you as well.

People will not retweet posts that are boring and dull. Therefore, let your imaginative mind work in making the content of your tweets.
A hashtag (#) is a symbol indicating that you are talking about a particular topic. You can search popular topics in Twitter and hashtag them. With this, your page will be listed in the search queue and people will click to your page.
Follow the right People
Do not follow too many people. Your credibility lies in the number of people following you. If you follow more people than those following you, you will look not as credible as you should be. In as much as possible, balance the number who follows you and you follow in return.
