There’s a new poll that’s making the rounds on Twitter, and it asks the question, “What is your #1 reason you Follow someone on Twitter?“, and was created by lollydaskal. As I’m writing this post, there has been just under 200 responses to the poll. Here are the results so far.
Now what stands out here? Obviously that the two major factors in having someone follow you on Twitter, is that you are “interesting” and can provide some substance, mainly “information“.
Oddly enough, almost 10% of the responses say they have no clue why they are following people on Twitter, which brings us to the next point. When someone follows you on Twitter, do you immediately follow them back? Personally, I try and only follow people that I have related interests or that I know. However, I’m sure I’m missing out on a lot of interesting people in the affiliate marketing niche, but just haven’t come across their Twitter… so don’t take it personally if I’m not following you back. If you have quality content and information, you will be followed soon enough!
Twitter is changing everything. In addition to the majority of affiliate networks that are finally recognizing that they need Twitter accounts… it’s even going mainstream as well.Big name celebrities like Britney Spears and now even the NBA are using Twitter to connect with their users. Just tonight I was scrolling through my Twitter posts and saw NBA tweet about a close game that was on. Right after seeing the post, I went to the other room and put on NBA TV to catch the last few minutes.
Just think about the free advertising, networking and new personal / business relations that are being established through Twitter. While others may be concerned Twitter doesn’t have a business model, quality will prevail and Twitter will continue to thrive.
