Hey there, Tropee readers! Are you looking to grow your Twitter following in the year ahead? Well, you've come to the right place! In this blog post, we'll dive into nine surefire ways to grow your Twitter followers quickly and easily. Plus, we'll sprinkle in some juicy details about the fascinating world of NFTs along the way. 

Let’s go!

1. Tweet consistently

First thing’s first, to build a strong Twitter presence, consistency is key. Get going by setting up a content calendar and schedule your tweets in advance. Aim for at least one tweet per day to keep your audience engaged and hungry for more. 

But beware - as well as these ‘do’s’ there are a few key ‘don’ts’. Avoid neglecting regular tweeting and excessive tweet overload, as they can have a negative impact on audience engagement. Strive for a balanced approach to maintain a thriving Twitter strategy.

2. Work the algorithm

Ah, the mysterious Twitter algorithm! Understanding how it works can give your follower count a major boost. Start by analyzing your top-performing tweets. Identify common themes and types of content that resonate with your audience. Then, use these insights to create more of what works and increase your chances of hitting the algorithm jackpot!

Need more tips on how to work that algorithm? Here you go:

  • Engage with your audience: Respond to comments, messages, and mentions promptly. Engage with your followers by retweeting, liking, and replying to their content. 
  • Share valuable content: What you do post has got to be good! Provide informative, entertaining, or helpful content to your followers. Share articles, tips, or industry insights that add value to their Twitter experience.
  • Participate in conversations: Engage in relevant discussions, join Twitter chats, and contribute to conversations within your niche. This increases your visibility and establishes you as an authority in your field.
  • Use Call-to-Action (CTA): Encourage engagement by including clear CTAs in your tweets. Ask questions, request retweets, or seek opinions to prompt responses from your audience (more on this later too).
  • Avoid spammy practices: Don’t use automated bots or engage in follow-for-follow schemes. Focus on organic growth through genuine interactions and valuable content.

3. Get verified

4. Post visual content

In a fast-paced digital world, eye-catching visuals are your secret weapon. Spice up your tweets with a variety of visual content. Get going by using tools like Canva or PlayPlay to design stunning images, videos, memes, GIFs, and infographics that align with your brand. Remember, visual content is the secret sauce to capturing attention - and the internet is full of great stuff that you can harness for your Twitter account.


  • Use vibrant and eye-catching colors in your visual content to attract attention and evoke emotions.
  • Incorporate people in your visuals whenever relevant. Human faces can create a sense of connection and relatability.
  • Optimize visual content for mobile viewing since a lot of Twitter users access the platform on mobile devices.
  • Include your brand logo or identity elements to maintain brand consistency and increase brand recognition.
  • Experiment with different types of visual content to find what resonates best with your audience.


  • Avoid using too many colors that may overwhelm or distract viewers from the main message.
  • Don't use visuals that are overly crowded or cluttered, as they can be confusing and hard to understand.
  • Refrain from using low-resolution images or videos that can appear pixelated and unprofessional.
  • Avoid using visuals that are unrelated to your tweet content or don't align with your brand's image.
  • Don't rely solely on visuals without providing context or complementary text to enhance understanding.

5. Post threads

Sometimes, 280 characters just aren't enough to convey your brilliant ideas. That's where tweet threads come in.

Get going by picking a topic you're passionate about and start a tweet thread. Break down your thoughts into a series of connected tweets, providing valuable insights and keeping your audience hooked. Threads have the potential to go viral and attract new followers to your account. Top tip from us - use the thread emoji (this one 🧵) to signal that you’re beginning a chain of tweets. Need some more do’s and don’ts? You got it.


  • Plan your thread: Before starting a thread, outline the key points you want to cover to ensure a coherent and organized narrative.
  • Use a compelling introduction: Begin your thread with an attention-grabbing and concise introduction to entice users to read further.

  • Keep tweets concise: Twitter has a character limit, so make sure each tweet in the thread is concise and to the point.
  • Use visuals: Include relevant images, GIFs, or videos to complement your text and make the thread visually appealing.

  • Engage with responses: Respond to users' comments and questions to foster meaningful discussions within the thread.
  • Use the pinned tweet feature: Consider pinning the first tweet of your thread to your profile to make it easily accessible to visitors.


  • Avoid being repetitive: Ensure each tweet in the thread adds something new; avoid repeating the same information.
  • Don't overwhelm with length: While threads allow for more extended content, avoid creating excessively long threads that might lose the audience's attention.
  • Avoid clickbait: Be transparent and deliver on the promises made in your thread's introduction; avoid misleading or clickbait-like tactics.
  • Don't ignore engagement: Stay engaged with users who comment on your thread; this helps build a community and encourages further interaction.
  • Avoid spreading misinformation: Verify facts before sharing information in your thread to maintain credibility.
  • Don't overdo threads: Use threads when it enhances the storytelling or provides additional context; don't use them unnecessarily for every post.
  • Avoid irrelevant content: Keep your thread focused on a specific topic or theme; avoid including unrelated or off-topic information.
