23 September 2010.
Landmark day, as I reach the 1,000 followers milestone.
That's 859 days after joining twitter many moons ago on 17 May 2008 to see what the fuss was all about.
It has been slow going all through 2010, but I must say all the ratios (see below) have remained consistent ever since I started taking notice of the numbers.
First of all, my 3 month chart according to twittercounter.com:
Some key tips for anyone trying to grow your network:
- Follow your interests
- Demonstrate expertise
- Focus on local tweeps
- Reciprocate when possible
- Engage in conversation
- Keep drunk tweets to a minimum!
- Be yourself
Follow these rules and the ratios should always be like this:
- Following:Followers = 1:1.25
- Followers:Updates = 1:5
