5 Working Suggestions To Get More Interactions On Twitter

Many people don’t get too many interactions on Twitter. So, they get frustrated and stop promoting their businesses on Twitter. But, let me tell you that Twitter is worth it and you should join it. If you are not using twitter for your blog or business, you are losing a lot of traffic and customers. So, don’t ignore Twitter and follow these tips to get more interactions and followers on Twitter.

1. Follow Interesting People In Your Niche

It’s not like you are gonna join Twitter and people are gonna visit your profile and click the follow button. You need to follow the interesting and influential people in your niche. This way you would come to know more about them and your industry as they would be posting the latest stuff going on. So, this way you’ll be able to update your blog with the latest things going on. Please don’t use follow and follow back method to get more follower. Because you would never receive quality followers that way.

2. Interact With People

Don’t just follow others also interact with them. If you are not gonna interact with anyone, no one would know about you, and you will be all alone tweeting and seeing your tweets yourself. So, interact with people whom you follow or like. Reply to their tweets, help them wherever possible. Now, this way they would come to know more and more about you.

If you would reply to their tweets frequently, they’ll be like, “He is a cool person.” So, interact with others, and they’ll interact with you. Maybe they’ll like you so much that they’ll follow you and retweet your tweets. So, if they have 20,000 followers and they are retweeting your stuff. You know, you are gonna get a lot of visitors to your site. And, don’t forget that you can interact with as many people as you want.

You should take advantage of various Twitter tools to keep track of all the engagement. If you are using Twitter on your Mac or on iPhone, the official Twitter app is pretty decent. Tweetdeck is one of my favorite, and if you need more power and control, you should get a free Hootsuite account.

3. Use #Hashtags

Use of hashtags is really important on Twitter. Hashtags would increase your audience reach on Twitter. For example, a normal tweet on New Year without a hashtag would just be visible to your followers. But, a tweet with #HappyNewYear would be visible to all the people searching for #HappyNewYear.

So, if you are adding hashtags to your tweet with your blog’s link. That tweet is gonna be visible to all the people searching for the hashtag you add to your tweet. So, this means that more people would be able to view your tweet and visit your website through the link you gave them in your tweet.

4. Join Twitter Tweet Chats

A Twitter tweet chat is a pre-arranged chat that happens on Twitter through the use of Twitter updates (called tweets) that include a predefined hashtag to link those tweets together in a virtual conversation. Now, once you join a twitter tweet chat. 

There would be all the people having a conversation on something. So, once you know what the conversation is all about, you can just tweet about a relevant blog post you are having on your blog. You can help all the people who are asking any questions. If they like you they are gonna follow you. 

Twitter chat is a really great way to interact with influential people in your niche as many influential people also join these. If you are a brand, you can also host your own Twitter chat. Here is a definite guide to hosting Twitter chat by Forbes.

Note by Harsh: You should check out Twchat for Twitter chat directory or even for participating in a Twitter chat conversation.

5. Let Your Current Followers Know, You Are On Twitter

Maybe you are not too popular on Twitter, but you are very popular on other social media websites like Facebook and Google+. So, just tell all your fans on other social medias that you have now officially joined Twitter and give them link to your Twitter profile and ask them to follow you.

You can also add your Twitter profile link to your website, So, all your visitors can get to know that you are on Twitter and they would follow you.

A good idea is; post about your Twitter presence on other social-media platforms like Facebook and Google plus. If you don’t want to post similar updates every month, you can selectively post status update from your Twitter profile on other social-media platforms.


1. Follow all the interesting and influential people in your niche. Please don’t use follow and follow back technique to get more followers. Also, don’t use any bots or hacks.

2. Don’t just follow others also interact with them and they would interact with you too.

3. Use hashtags to increase your reach and target more audience on Twitter.

4. Join Twitter Tweet Chats to interact with more and more people in your niche. Some of them may also follow you.
