Below are six suggestions for finding people to follow, but first a little business-focused contemplation. Think about your purpose and motive. This will help you focus on following the right kind of people. Two important business questions are:

  • Do you want to follow people with similar interests, in the same industry? or
  • Do you prefer to develop a group of followers who will benefit from your products or services and possibly hire you?

  1. Most people tend to reciprocate followers, so keep the Golden Rule in mind. Follow the kind of people whom you want to be followed by.
  2. Follow a couple of people you know, such as the person who introduced you to Twitter.
  3. Follow their friends. Observe conversations and then choose new followers from among the people others are talking with.
  4. Upload your contact list to Twitter to find people on Twitter whom you already know. Follow #2 above again.
  5. Visit TwitterPacks. It lists all kinds of Twitter folks according to special interest.
  6. Search on Twitter for your city or town name along with the state, and review profiles to find new people to follow.
  7. Visit TweetScan. It’s a more advanced twitter search site.

Number 2 above is a successful method because it includes some measure of social validation as you move from friend to friend of friend, rather than guessing whom to follow. You know the old saying, “Birds of a feather flock together”? It really does apply here.

As John said, the reason for following people is so that they will follow yoiu back (usually). If you're wondering why you would want to have people follow you, it's so that we can interact with them and build relationships.

Exactly! if you want to have great followers you have to work hard for it. Doesn't mean you follow someone that person will follow you back. My philosophy is that its better to have few followers as long as they are merely interested in everything you will tweet than having tons of them who are wasted.

I have a twitter account I set i up at least a yea ago. I have no Idea how to use it or why people follow you? Seems it may be to get you in to the company they are reps for? Is there another reason? Linda

Linda, that would really only apply to people promoting income opportunities like MLM.
They don't last long on Twitter doing that kind of dumb promotion. Or any other social networks.

There are any number of smarter and more useful reasons for having people follow you on Twitter — like having something useful and rewarding to say!

Social networking as grown wider in such a way that, business have started taking leads from it. So its always advisable to stay in touch with follower by re tweeting or by just tweeting some new information, etc.

The easiest way of finding people is to connect with new people on different social media sites and make them to connect with you on Twitter. By sharing quality info regarding your products and services on different social media sites, you can attract people to connect you on Twitter. Using links on your post can also help you a lot.
