My Story of Being Stuck at 35 Twitter Followers

When I first joined Twitter, it seemed like I was stuck at having 35 Twitter followers for the longest time.

There was a guy who joined Twitter almost at the same time that I did, and his name was Timothy Whalin.

Both of us had about the same number of followers.

After a few months, I came across Tim’s account and I saw that he had 1,500 Twitter followers.

Then a month later, he had 2,500 Twitter followers.

How was Tim getting hundreds of free Twitter followers while I was still stuck at 35?

That sparked me to do some research on how to get free Twitter followers.

I experimented with a lot of the tips that I found on the Internet, but unfortunately, there’s a lot of bad advice out there.

Finally, after months of mistakes and pulling out my hair, I was able to find good suggestions that helped me to get free Twitter followers.

More importantly, they were relevant Twitter followers who were genuinely interested in what I had to say, and who clicked on my links.

Because I don’t want you to make the same mistakes that I did, and because I want you to experience great Twitter success, I put all of this information into a free Twitter guide.

The advice below is based on 4 of the 7 steps that are found in the guide.

If you follow the advice below without the guide, then you will get results.

But if you want to get the results that you’re hoping to get faster, then you’ll want access to the free Twitter guide.

Even if you do sign up to get access to the free Twitter guide, you’ll still want to read this blog post because there are additional tips that aren’t included in the guide.

7 Steps to Getting Free Twitter Followers

1.  Identify Your Ideal Audience

Before you can start getting free Twitter followers, you have to ask, “Who do I want following me?”

“Everyone,” is not a good answer to that question.

There’s a reason for that is:

[Tweet “If you try to please everyone, then you’ll end up pleasing no one.”]

For example, if you’re a Christian hip-hop artist and you want to share your music on Twitter, then you’ll want to have Christians who love hip hop music following you.

If you serve in a ministry and you’re into video production, then you’ll want video editors and camera operators to follow you.

Don’t be afraid to get very specific about who you want to be your ideal follower.

At the time of writing this article, there are more than 271 million active Twitter users, so you can be sure that there are all sorts of people out there who are interested in what you have to share.

2.  Create a Tweeting Strategy

People who are struggling to get free Twitter followers will sometimes contact me and ask me what they’re doing wrong.

After I investigate their account, I find that one of their big Twitter mistakes is that they have no tweeting strategy, and that they tweet whatever they want.

If you’re making this mistake now on Twitter, sorry to burst your bubble, but you just can’t tweet anything that you want to and expect to grow your following.


Because people generally will read another person’s tweets only if they add some kind of value.

So if you sometimes tweet about your food, your frustration, and other random topics, then it’s going to cost you.

[Tweet “Tweeting whatever you feel like is one sure way to get people to unfollow you.”] The only exception to this rule are celebrities.

People do care about what celebrities eat, how long they nap, and other things that we’d usually find boring about non-famous people.

So if you’re not a celebrity, then you have to come up with a great tweeting strategy.


If want to create a Tweeting strategy that will cause your followers to give you compliments, then you have to take off your shoes, and put on your followers’ shoes.

For example, what kind of tweets do they want to read?

What interests them?

The other day I tweeted a blog post by a blogger on our church blog.

Sara, one of my followers, told me how much she liked the blog post, and then she was very gracious in giving me a compliment (all glory be to God).


You can use the 4W’s below to create great tweets.

Just think about your ideal follower, and then answer these four questions when it comes to your niche:

1.  What kind of things does your ideal follower wonder about?

2.  What kind of things does your ideal follower worry about?

3.  What kind of things does your ideal follower get wrong?

4.  What kind of things would make your ideal follower feel like they are well-informed?

Remember, you’re not answering these questions on behalf of everyone, you’re only answering these question according to the ideal follower in your niche.

For example, if you’re the owner of a chain of Italian restaurants, and your ideal followers are people who love Italian food, then here would be your answers to the 4W’s:

1.  What kind of things does your ideal follower wonder about?

    • How do I make great tasting home-made pizza, cannolis, marinara sauce…?

2.  What kind of things does your ideal follower worry about?

    • Italian food can sometimes be too heavy, it can maybe raise my cholesterol, I don’t like dishes that use squid in them, etc.

3.  What kind of things does your ideal follower get wrong?

    • They add too much meat to their marinara sauce, they undercook the pasta and it becomes too hard (also known as al dente), etc.

4.  What kind of things would make your ideal follower feel like they are well-informed?

    • How to make great Italian dishes, how to make home-made pizza, how to make healthy Italian food that doesn’t raise cholesterol, etc.

Once you come up with your tweeting strategy, make sure you stick to it.

3.  Follow Your Ideal Follower

Next, you want to start following your ideal follower.

But how do you find your ideal follower on Twitter?

If you’ve already done steps one and two, then you know what kind of tweets your ideal follower is interested in reading, and who they are following on Twitter.

So all you have to do is start following the followers of someone who has similar tweets to yours.

So if you’re a Christian blogger who tweets Christian things, then you can follow the followers of a Pastor of a church, because the pastor probably tweets Christian tweets too.

Therefore, his ideal followers are very similar to the ones that you want to be following you.

I have a video on my YouTube channel that shows you how to do this.

Here it is and I’ve forwarded it to start at the part that I think you’ll find interesting.


If you’re serious about getting Twitter followers, then you’ll want to follow new people everyday or at least every other day.

The problem with this is that it’s time-consuming, especially when you move to step number four below.

That’s why I recommend using ManageFlitter (affliate link), a tool that can help you do these steps so much faster, and will save you a lot of time.

It’s my Twitter tool of choice, and I use it seven days a week.

4.  Unfollow Those Who Don’t Follow You Back

There are limitations to the number of people who you can follow, and I go into greater depth about what these are in the free Twitter guide.

For now, all you need to know is that you need to give your ideal follower two or three days to follow you back.

If they don’t follow you back, then you need to unfollow them or else you won’t be able to add more people.

You can give your ideal follower more time to follow you back if you want to, but it will reduce the number of people that you can follow everyday.

Unless you have more than 10,000 Twitter followers.

If you already have a large Twitter following, then you can give people more time to follow you back while still following new people everyday.

5.  Engage With Your Followers

Your followers want you to engage with them.

That means that they want you to have a two-way conversation about both of your interests.

A great way to find out what your followers are interested in is to check out their bio.

Most people write about what they enjoy in their bio.

If you met someone at a party that you went to, and all they did was talk about themselves, you would find someone else to talk to, right?

Of course you would.  Same thing with Twitter.

It’s not just about you, it’s mostly about your followers.

[Tweet “You can be a huge success by giving more to others than you take.”]

6.  Tweet When Your Followers Are Online

When you tweet, you want to make sure that you’re tweeting at times when most of your followers are online so that they can see your tweets.

When you time your tweets correctly, then your tweets will get more retweets.

This will result in your tweets getting more visibility, and ultimately, you’ll get new followers.

However, there are two problems when it comes to tweeting when your followers are online.  Fortunately, I have the solution for both problems:

  1. How can you find out when you’re followers are on Twitter?  Just check out this blog post about a tool called Tweriod.
  2. How can you schedule your posts in advance so you can tweet when your followers are on Twitter?  Check out this blog post about Hootsuite.

7.  Create Awesome Tweets

The more that your tweets are amazing, the more likely that they’ll go viral.

People love to share great tweets, favorite them, and reply back to them.

So how do you create awesome tweets?

Check out this blog post about 18 tips that make your tweets go viral.

And don’t forget to use great and relevant images as much as possible, because they get the most attention and retweets.

Imagine What You Could Do With More Twitter Followers

In my opinion, having more twitter followers shouldn’t be about numbers.

It’s not about being vain, prideful, or bragging rights.

It’s about helping people, ministering to them, and influencing people for Christ.

If you see social media as a ministry, and an opportunity to make an impact, then you can be sure that you’ll be making an impact on people’s lives that last a lifetime.
