OK SinceTwitter got some mass effect I also wish to share some info about it. Twitter is a social network where people communicate to each other using 140 symbols status messages -tweets.
This the one of most of important integer on the Twitter. You will start from having just one or zero followers. To get followers you can: start tweeting about everything is on your mind. I guess you are familiar already with status updates if you are using FaceBook,Hi5. If you don't know what to say or have a problems with English you can retweet a message you like by copping all the message and adding RT to the begging. For example:
RT @aliencide .Got old laptop that only runs Win98? Why don't you turn it into netbook by installing PuppyLinux.
I see that others using re tweeting a lot to have a huge amount of tweets. More tweets means more keywords in your profile page. If you mention for example "laptop" a some shopkeeper will start follow you to offer you a laptops. It's good even if you don't buy anything because you will have a +1 follower. There is a limit how much messages you can write in a day. Take some time toread a help about handy twitter functions and commands.
Next you can start searching for other people and if you see that followers and following number is similar you can be clear that this user will follow you back.
Third you need to register at WeFollow.com. It's a huge catalog of tweeters divided into categories. Sign Up and write 5 tags that will help you to find a followers with same interests and marketers to find you. This could be a topics that fits the best your tweets or you personal activities,interests. If you out of ideas just write the top tags. :P
Allow this application to connect to your account. Everything done and after few days or hours this will boost some followers for you.
OK now let's talk about your account management. I found some free service that let's you automate the tweeting. It means you wouldn't need to login to Twitter to post some messages since everything will do for you automated tweeting.
Go-toTweetLater.com (it changed the name to Socialoomph.com) . Sign up for free account unless you want to get 30 days trial of pro version with all cool features. (After 30 days your account will revert to Free). After simple registration login and go to Accounts -> Add Account. Select type - Twitter. Fill your Twitter login details. Scroll down the page until you find a Auto Welcome Messages. It's a good option to choose since you can advertise your site with kind text before it or make revenue from advertisement link. Read the info block about the disadvantages and advantages of auto DM. I hate those with offering to watch some lame marketing video. You could just thank a people for following you.
Scrolling down. The Auto follow option. This option will make you follow all your new followers. It's good stuff since it helps to keep a equal number of the Following and Followers. Main minus is that you will follow various low reputation users,spammers and etc. It's up to you to follow them or manually block them since they also are your followers. :)
The last option for emailing your mentions. It's a good option if you don't login often.
