Growing on Twitter and gaining more followers is possible but magic won’t help you. Follow these tips to grow your community.


You must know to whom your content will be oriented before you start tweeting. You must establish who your target audience will be in order to know the tone and language you will use.


Once you have identified your target audience on Twitter, it’s time to focus on your content, making sure it is relevant, loyal to your identity, and interesting for your followers.

Quality content will be the best way to conquer your public and get more Twitter followers. Share relevant and useful and visual content.

Post Visual Content

According to Twitter, 97% of users pay more attention to visual content because it stands out in the timeline. So add visual content to capture attention.


Twitter is a very dynamic social network because people tweet at any time from everywhere.

It’s important that you schedule your posts when your followers are more active. If your followers realize that your profile is not updated, or you don’t post updates, they will stop following you. Be careful though, you shouldn’t overwhelm twitterers with too many posts.

Some applications like Metricool allow you to schedule your tweets at the best time according to your audience so you don’t have to stay on Twitter the whole day.

You can also automate content with Metricool autolists feature. You can create lists of content for Twitter and make the list circular, so you always keep your profile active.

People will look closely at the first two tweets that appear on your profile. This platform lets you set a tweet at the beginning of your timeline, so it will be easily seen by users as soon as they enter your profile.

Having a captivating tweet will help you to get more followers and make a great first impression with your audience


A hashtag on Twitter is a kind of label that helps you find what you’re looking for. It’s crucial that you use them on your tweets correctly.

You can also analyze which hashtags are trending at the moment and if they fit within your editorial plan, use them. This strategy will also help you reach more Twitter followers.


Interact with people who are already following you. Ask questions or create your own surveys to attract their interest and improve engagement on Twitter. Once you establish a relationship with them, you can take advantage of those interactions.


Retweeting what you find interesting or what complements your info will capture your followers’ attention. It’s a way to make your timeline more enjoyable.  Besides, this allows you to show other tweets in addition to yours. Asking your followers to retweet your content sometimes works and spreads your content on Twitter, so you will reach more people.


If you analyze your Twitter account, you will know how many followers you earn or lose and when it happens.

You will also learn how many interactions you get by publication and at what time of the day your followers are more active.

You should study your audience to know their interests or how you can draw their attention. Metricool also gives you the option to analyze your Twitter account where you can find metrics as follows:

Mistakes to avoid to gain more followers on Twitter

Apart from following the tips mentioned before to get more followers, there are some things that you should avoid so you don’t shoo your audience and make them stop following you.

❌  Don’t send too many direct messages

If you send too many direct messages, your followers might find it annoying and stop following you. So, it’s better to send messages when it is indispensable to build trust with your followers.

❌  Don’t tweet constantly unnecessarily

It might be tiresome for your followers, so they could decide to unfollow you.

❌  Don’t ask too much on Twitter

Asking for retweets, likes or any other type of interaction in excess can put people off. You won’t build loyal followers.

❌  Don’t always repeat the same tweets

Avoid very repetitive tweets because users will unfollow you. Nobody likes spam.

I warned you at the beginning of this article. There are no tricks to get more followers on Twitter quickly. If you want to increase real followers on this network, you will have to spend some time on your Twitter account. This will be the best method to increase your community

Do you have any questions?

    Hi Sara,

    Every good thing takes time. Required lots of efforts and time.
    Asking for retweets to the followers is fine till some limit otherwise it feels irritating and annoying.

    The most important thing is to study the followers’ interest and create content accordingly. After all, our aim is to increase followers and promote our brand.

    You are right, there’s no quick trick to instantly increase the followers on twitter. Staying active and constantly is the only way. I’m grateful for your tips.
