    I've tried following a lot (a couple of thousand) of people following accounts that are similar to mine and I did get a bit of a response, netting me about 500 followers, but then I got stuck. If I unfollow them in order to follow others I'm likely to get my account suspended. What strategies have you applied to quickly get more followers?

    Why would you get your account suspended if you unfollow them? I don't understand the reason behind this.

    What you need to do to grow you twitter followers is to tweet a lot, but don't just do it to share your own content. You need to be interactive in discussions related to your niche and use hashtags. Retweet messages from people you follow. All of this will get you noticed and people are more willing to follow an active tweeter.

    Unfollowing in bulk is not a good idea. If you use software to do this it will come to the attention of Twitter, which does not approve of users doing mass unfollows.

    Doing a few unfollows each day will do no harm and might only result in you losing some of your followers, but if you gain a few new followers each day it will not be a problem.

    I hear another great way to increase twitter followers is to use an automated program to do some of the work for you unless you want to manually tweet everything. The best way to get followers is to tweet right. Set it up and let it go.

    That means to set up a bot which is bannable I think.

    There are a lot of sites which offers twitts exchanges (which is not bannable) or even you can buy retweet at some site like Fiverr. It's not expensive and the results are great.

    Do you think it's worth investing in such services?

    The best way to get twitter followers in my experience is to follow lots of people and many will follow you back. Over time just keep following lots of people and your followers will add up. You can also unfollow the one's that didn't follow you back. Once your account has enough followers you can slowly begin to stop this and focus more on actual tweeting instead of trying to get followers. If you already have a large enough following then then as you get retweets/favorites you will gain followers naturally without all the hassle.

    I gained about 5k followers by just following users who provided the general hashtags of wanting new followers. I like Twitter's mobile platform, because the buttons on the side make it easy to just scroll down and hit follow on every user you find. It didn't generate as much referrals as old sites like Xanga did for me, but it did get the job done all in all.

    You can purchase Twitter sites that are already equipped with followers, but the problem with that, is you don't always know if they're genuine users. There could be a Twitter with 5k authentic followers that are actually individuals Tweeting from their personal accounts versus purchasing one with 5k followers that are spammers or fellow marketers. I would only consider paying for one that had at least 80% genuine followers.

    Don't unfollow people after you've followed them. That's really unethical if you consider yourself a real Internet marketer. I suggest you just expand your marketing prospects and link your SNS accounts so that everyone who likes your FB page can also follow your Twitter, Tumblr and Pinterest accounts.

    The best way to get lots of followers is also follow a lot of people. It's just that simple. And also, if you post interesting stuff/topics, I'm sure you'll get tons of followers. (y)

    I noticed that people tend to follow people they have followed them. That being said, it's a circle where you get more followers if you follow more people.

    If you already have a decent following on the internet that isn't a problem. Otherwise it's hard to get many followers on Twitter without follow back techniques. I don't really see it as unethical to unfollow people who didn't follow you back. The goal in the beginning is to create an active account with a decent number of followers. Only then can you actually enjoy using twitter. A dead account that get's 1 new follower per week isn't worth your time. If you have to follow & unfollow people to build up a decent following, I don't really see anything wrong with that.

    It is unethical to do that. Why follow someone in the first place only to put your own account atop a pedestal? Even if you want an illusion of reputation for your business, at least do it the decent way. I see some people unfollow others - working accounts mind you and not pseudo accounts - as soon as they receive a follow back. That's quite mercenary. If I were a consumer or someone with an interest in your company and you'd something so underhanded as to unfollow others, I would immediately stop patronizing your products. It's good to do business online. But a lot of people doing business nowadays are ruthless and without a shred of decency. Their business methods, though seemingly legal on the outside, are so selfish.

    Maybe. Depends on how you look at it I guess. I personally wouldn't have a problem with someone who used follow back techniques to get followers. I see it as exchanging followers. I'll follow you if you follow me back sort of thing. That's just me though. Maybe that seems unethical to some.

    I think that's a common sense agreement where you follow someone and expect to be followed back. Sadly, I see many not doing this and it makes me a bit angry.

    Hi, it looks you are in a hurry to get more followers and optimizing the strategies to follow more people and in return get some following back and now you find an obstacle.

    My advice for you not just using tweeter manage tools (Unfollowers, tweepi, managefilters) but also unfollow them manually in order to they don't response you follow back.

    Try to maintain a balance between following and followers of your twitter account.
