5 Mistakes people do on Twitter when trying to grow their account

If you found value in this thread you will most likely enjoy my tweets too so make sure you follow me on Twitter for more information about web development and how to improve as a developer. This article was first published on my Blog

1. They are not consistent

If you want to grow on any social media platform, not only Twitter, you need to be consistent

Post a Tweet every single day

Not only that Twitter algorithm will push your tweets more if you are consistent but you will also grow faster

2. They don't engage with bigger accounts

In the beginning, no one will see your tweets

Unfortunately, this is the truth

To grow in the beginning, you need to engage with a bigger account

Reply to their tweets and add value

Do this until you get to over 1000 followers

3. They use a lot of hashtags

Using more than 2 hashtags on your posts is useless

You could use at max 2 hashtags until you get to 1000-1500 followers

But after that drop them

They just make your posts look spammy and no one wants to engage with spammy tweets

4. They have a bad bio

Your bio should tell others who you are, what's your content is about, and what they get if they follow you

Don't use hashtags in your bio

Keep it simple and don't talk about useless stuff

5. They don't know how to format their tweets

You need to add more spaces between in your tweets

Like I do

This will make your tweets easier to read and people will engage more with them

The end

I hope found this useful and if you did please let me know. If you have any question feel free to DM me on Twitter .
