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.
3. Create lists of like minded people. She who convenes the network, reaps the benefits.
4. Follow lists of people you find interesting. Look on Listorious to find more good ones.
I wrote this because my friend Julien Smith says Twitter is useless to build a following. (note for the delicate in the crowd: Julien uses bad language.) Just for the record, I agree with Julien’s main point: “getting RT’ed doesn’t build audience if it doesn’t go to your content.”
Now, I told you that story to tell you this one.
Here are four ways outside of Twitter to build your following.
