Are you participating in #BlackoutDay?

I have some suggestions for you.

I see so many #FBR parties and honestly, they’re traps for trolls and bots to follow you and anyone who posts on them.

Let me suggest a few ways to gain followers that gives you solid people who interact
How do you gain good followers?
Several ways:
🌀 Post original content
🌀 Interact & reply to people on your feed & the feed of people you like
🌀 Stay active
🌀 Use trending hashtags & words to make your tweets visible
🌀Vet followers & followback
🌀Give a synopsis of articles
Posting original content:
🖊️Make sure you have a good balance of RT/QT and original tweets
🖊️Use MEMEs, photos and GIFS to grab attract attention
🖊️Tag people in your photos
🖊️Give your opinion of an article, don't just repeat the headline
🖊️Try a thread, just reply to yourself!
Interaction is key:
Reply to people on your tweets (Don't forget to like their replies)
Ignore Bots/Trolls, don't waste the time & junk up your Tweet replies
Reply to people you follow
Reply to an article with what you think
Vet & follow people that reply

Stay active:
💨If you don't have time to devote each day, try to tweet something original every couple of days & retweet/quote tweet things you like
💨Remember, you don't have to devote your life to Twitter
💨Use your interests to help drive your content

Hashtags:
#⃣Find & use trending hashtags & words to make your tweets visible. Those tweets get noticed by people outside of your current following
#⃣Click on the hashtag & you can see all the tweets
#⃣Like & retweet & if you notice someone new, vet them & follow!

Vetting people to follow:
1⃣Look at the person's bio, this gives you an idea what they tweet about
2⃣Look at the original tweets (use this search: FROM:Their_Twitter_Name)
3⃣Do they mostly troll or do they post positive content
4⃣Follow (even if they don't follow you)
Summarize articles:
🗞️Make people want to read the article for themselves.
🗞️Headlines can be misleading.
🗞️Let people know what you thought about the article.
🗞️Try not to repeat the headline
🗞️Focus your synopsis on what you took away from reading it
Remember, quality over quantity!
Find a person that you follow & look through their follower list, vet them & follow first. If they don't follow back within a week, unfollow.
Keep up all the pointers in this thread until you have built a solid following.
