You can attract significantly more Twitter followers by making just a few simple changes to your approach — even if you have a substantial following on Twitter (if you’ve got more than 208, you’re beating the average).

One of the easiest ways to boost your followers is to work with the connections you already have. Twitter’s Find Friends option lets you search your Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail, and AOL mail address books for contacts who’ve already signed up for Twitter.

One of the most important aspects of using Twitter lies in how you interact with your followers. You’re far more likely to attract new followers (and build stronger relationships with existing ones) if you converse with, rather than simply broadcast to, them.
