Being Responsive Gains Twitter Followers: And Other Lessons from @GaryVee's Twitter Data
Responsive! This might be one of the most important aspects of building your Twitter presence. If you write a blog post that someone really likes, they'll either a. comment on your blog or b. throw you a shout out on Twitter. If that happens,respond. There is nothing someone likes more than getting a response from someone they reached out to. It doesn't have to be anything special, but a "hey, thanks for reading, I appreciate it! stay tuned, more coming"will go way farther than ignoring that person. Even if the tweet is negative, respond (positively) anyway. That person will probably be so stoked on the response, they might retweet it. Which will show all of their followers, which will draw more people to you.
