I started my Twitter account back in October 2013. I didn’t really understand the concept of #hashtags and thought it polite to follow everyone who followed me. I learned the @ tag was actually part of my (is it a ) name.
My first followers were family but gradually I have built a small following picked up from my love of cavalier dogs, black cats and my high involvement in watching reality television.
Today I was reading through the tweets of @WanderinPoet and saw a tweet about How to Spot Fake Followers and it got me thinking about how to increase my followers so I posed the question back about how to increase followers. The reply was almost instantaneous ( just how I like things) with a tweet AND a WordPress blog post of information ( read here). If you are a Twitter learner like me you’ll no doubt find it interesting – I did.
My Twitter usage is social predominantly, I love that I can always find something to comment on or join in a discussion, and admire a photo or read an inspiring quote. I’ve also used it to contact big brands for tech help. I also use it to publicise my new WordPress blog posts ( that have been few and far between recently).
If you are a tweeter how do you use Twitter? Oh and can you tell me if a ‘@whoever’ is shared differently in Twitter if it’s put at the start or end of a tweet – I notice people do either .
