Here are four ways that I am using Twitter itself to attract interesting and interested people on Twitter.
1. Live tweet from events. Include the event hashtag. (If there isn’t one, make one.)
2. Participate in tweet chats. Find one that interests you on this list of Twitter Chats on Google Docs.

4. Follow lists of people you find interesting. Look on Listorious to find more good ones.
