Okay, now you have been on twitter for a little bit, but know it’ll be fun to chat with a bigger audience or even try to be a twitter celebrity. More followers makes tweeting fun!  Imagine sharing laughs when your favorite show is airing live or if your into small business, then imagine having more customers to promote your deals to.  The question is how, the answer is Follow Friday.

Each week, a large portion of Tweeps participate in this function.  They begin by putting the words “Follow Friday” in their tweet.  Follow Friday are keywords that are listed in the Trending Topics each week, so this tweet will be seen by many, not just your few followers.  People even search for messages labeled Follow Friday, which helps users to follow others by recommendation.  How to do it? You must add usernames to your message.  These are the Tweeps that you refer to others, but make sure u use an @ sign in front of their username.   Like this”

An example of a Follow Friday message is below:

My Follow Friday @username1  @username2 @username3 and @username4 Please Add these Great Users!

This is the basic style of tweet in a follow friday to expand your network, virally.  Let it spread and if it appeals, then you have a nice network. Focus on making it spread by being creative & using the power of twitter features. To get fancy, try adding at the end the letter “RT” which stand for Retweet (resending a twitter message).  This makes your message reach more people, just think if the RT goes to users who has 1000’s of followers and they send the message to their network, now you’ve just advertises, on the “tweet channel”.  Advance tweeters find users who have large networks and give them a shout out in exchange for a shout out.  By getting big-time users, then you reach more, faster, but you need a reason to get a shout out, so start slowly and you’ll see an improving growth.  Don’t get burned out, it’s not difficult, just something to have fun with now & then, and after some time, you’ll a tweet master!

HASHTAGS:  #FF #FFVIP #followfriday

Also, you may want to use a hashtag or even a popular trending topic word, so you will appear on even more search engine listings for twitter.  This makes your tweet search engine friendly. My favorite one is #FFVIP which is follow friday V.I.P.  Users who search tweets in the public timeline, attempts to gain users who are willing to followback by using the hashtag, then follows them, and possibly promote to others.  Other tags are listed in the heading. Use it like this:

Example Advanced Follow Friday Message:

Follow Friday Best Tweeps this week: @username1 @username2 @username3 @anotheruser @funnyuser #FFVIP #FF – Please RT

Did you see all the usernames and where to include and not include spaces?  There’s other ways to grow your network as well. Just tweeting regularly can help pick up a follower, because users search on keywords and may find your’s interesting.  The strongest way to get tweeps is having great messages and talk about trending topics.  Other users see this message and may add you to follow someone cool or with insight, yeah you.  So make sure your message has good content.  Try tweeting a few times a day and especially at busy times such as lunch and nightime, this is when more folks are on & they love checking the trending topics “keywords” that are inside of public tweets.

And Lastly, having a nice profile helps.  Try to keep your “following” and “followers” around the same number.  In the beginning it will be more difficult, but once u have a few hundred, keep the numbers even.  This tells others your not begging.  Have a nice background too.  Search google for a “free twitter background” and add one to your profile.  Now u look cool, messages are cool, your on the cool list, and will grow from other cool users, lol.  Having an audience is fun, so happy tweeting and follow me, lol.  @trendingtoday

  8. November 2008 the FDIC published a revised Shared Advice Perception holding that funds underlying payroll stored value cards are covered not quite FDIC indemnification if the funds are placed at an FDIC-insured bank. This posture had been proposed a soup‡on years ago anterior to the FDIC, but not officially adopted.
    Palm Unchecked Nationalist Bank is a fellow of the Federal Choked Warranty Corporation (“FDIC”) and all cardholders funds are insured sooner than the FDIC in accordance with the FDIC’s germane terms and conditions.
