The previous article gave an introduction on a critical conceptual shift required to start getting fans on Twitter by changing one’s mindset from one of a follower to that of a leader. This provides a foundation for long-term success but does not negate the need to employ
The strategies of getting more followers on Twitter
How to Get More Twitter Followers
