Lon's Guide to Increasing Your Twitter Followers

(The following is a response to Kevin Rose: 10 Ways To Increase Your Twitter Followers)

  1. Be Famous
    This daring strategy seems to be working effectively for Britney Spears, John Cleese and Tina Fey. By cleverly arranging to already be famous, they have a built-in audience when signing up for social networks.

  2. Have lots of followers on other social networking sites.

  3. Have a high traffic blog or web site
    Post links to your twitter page on high-traffic sites such as CNN or Digg.

  4. Offer your famous iPhone to a random follower
    Of course, some would consider that crass. Especially if you have to give away a different phone...

  5. Mention your twitter account on This Week in Tech as often as possible.
    (I'm looking at you, Jason Calacanis, Robert Scoble, and, of course, John C. Dvorak.)

  6. Visit another planet
    Mars counts.

  7. Engage in a highly publicized Twitter follower competition with Leo Laporte.

  8. Be the head of a large organization and make your employees follow you.

  9. Follow everyone. Hey it works for Guy Kawasaki!

  10. and the best way to increase your Twitter followers:

  11. Be President of the United States.
