If you’re on Twitter, it means you want people to seek you out and follow you when you have interests that are similar to theirs. The number of your followers define your reach in Twitter and you want that number to be as big as possible.

But are you one those unwittingly decreasing your follower counts? There are two simple ways that you can be limiting your effectiveness in Twitter.

Upload your photo

Do you have a photo in your twitter profile? If none, then you’re given that default avatar in twitter. Who else have that same default avatar? Only those people who are so lazy to upload their own photo. And some of them are the lousy spammers and those robot accounts and worst, spamming accounts that hide behind the default avatar. If you don’t have a picture, people can assume the worst about you which you want to avoid at all costs. Remember, a picture is worth a thousand followers in twitter.

Get a good username

The second little thing is your username. If you have a nice username, you’ll tend to get more followers than one with a bad username. Bad usernames are those with long number sequences that look so spammy like Frank0920887. Or if you have a silly sounding name like “IHateMyRoomate”, this makes it so clear that you’re not very serious in twitter. That you are trying to be unpopular and are not looking for twitter followers.

It’s a simple, little step to get a nice and good-sounding username. Once you have that name, upload your nicest picture. You’ll be surprised how these two small beginnings can get you a huge following in twitter.

The next step is then to tweet people and make more friends to increase your followers even more.
