Here are 50 bite-sized Twitter growth tips that I have used to build a following of over 66k followers.

Every day for the last 50 days, I made a short video explaining one key concept, from fundamentals to specific frameworks and tools.

Here they are, all in one mega-thread.

Let’s start with today’s tip: saying thank you. I am extremely grateful for my followers, and if you feel the same way, it’s a pretty solid bet that telling them will make them happy.

Twitter is a visual medium, but Twitter spaces flipped the script. You can now use your voice —maybe your best asset to build human-to-human connections— to forge relationships with your audience. Here is how Spaces can work for you:

You won’t get anywhere with begging or offering follow-for-follows. If you want to build real connections with people, don’t make it transactional. Don’t ask for follows.

Three things are most commonly done wrong:

– over-focus on standalone tweets
– unprofessional demeanor
– inconsistent posting

Fix these, and you’ll have dealt with the majority of your potential pitfalls.

When you’re looking for accounts that are similar to the ones you already like, you can use Twitter lists — as a research tool!

And in case you didn’t figure this out by yourself just yet: never buy followers. Don’t rent them. Don’t bribe them.

Let them find you.

Here’s something most people forget after tweeting: engage with your own content. Engage with the people who engage with you. Just because it’s out there doesn’t mean you should stop looking at it. There is a lot to be done still.

Mentioning other accounts isn’t hard, but it’s hard to get it right. Here are my rules that I use when it comes to involving other people in a conversation.

When we use Twitter professionally, we’re putting ourselves out there, every day. That can take a toll.

Making sure you have an eye on your mental health and stepping away when you need it is paramount to long-term success.

Every chain is as strong as its weakest link. Every audience is as good as its least compatible member.

The more you focus on maintaining a high-quality audience, the better your opportunities. This will take some pruning.

Sometimes, we dread talking to a high-profile account with lots of followers. It can be quite scary, and we feel like we might mess up our one big shot.

But we don’t have to. Here’s my process.

Engagement is the most important thing you can do here, even more than tweeting your own thoughts.

Why? Because it happens in the context of other, bigger audiences. Here is how you tap into that potential.

How much should you tweet?

That depends on the kind of tweeting we’re talking about. My general rule is: limit standalone tweets and engage as much as you can.

Here are the details.

Using Twitter professionally means instituting a process. A creative process, an editorial process, and a logistical process.

Scheduling tweets is great, and you can prepare your content —intentionally and purposefully— ahead of time.

Blocking people used to scare me.

Not anymore. Sometimes, this ultimate act of disconnection is required to improve your overall audience quality.

Here is how I use it and when.

Fake followers —bots, junk, and inactive accounts— are in everyone’s follower list. The bigger your audience, the more they can impede your progress.

Here is how I find and handle them.

Many Twitter beginners think they have nothing to say.

That’s a self-limiting belief: hundreds, if not thousands of people out there could learn a lot from what you consider banal or uninteresting.

Twitter is a relationship engine. If you only use it as a distribution channel, you’re missing out on a major aspect of this platform.

On Twitter, you can be one (or more) of these roles: creator, curator, connector, or commentator.

The shape and impact of your content depend on how well you understand your roles.

If you try to appeal to everyone, you end up being extremely boring.

Find a niche, cater to their specific needs, and expand later. A niche audience will be much easier to build.
