STOP-Losing Your Followers On Twitter

Have you ever lost followers on Twitter and wonder why?

You could be making HUGE mistakes and not even know it.
Every so often Twitter will clean house, delete tens of thousands of accounts identified as spam accounts. When Twitter does this everyone loses followers and in this case it’s a good thing.

If your not growing your following on Twitter or if you are losing followers, listed below could be some of the reasons why.


Auto Direct Message
: These things are very annoying, and there is nothing personal about them. For example, “Thanks for following me, learn more about me on facebook! Be sure to check out my website!”. What’s worse is when people resend the same direct message the same day or a few days later to tell you the same thing, like one is not enough. If you are going to send an auto DM make sure the message has value.

Blasting Tweets: Are you one of those people who send out ten or more posts at once that fill up the entire Twitter stream? You need to give others a chance to speak or join in on the conversation. When you spam, all people see is a wall of your smiley face picture with useless information. If you ever wonder why you lose a bunch of followers on Twitter all at once, this could be the biggest reason.

Over Promoting: Do you only post about your website? People will think you are a robot if all you do is send out tweets about your website and tell people to check it out. Try to connect with others by interacting on Twitter before asking them to check out your website. When someone posts something interesting, then you should retweet it to your followers and can talk about it.

Proper Follow Up: When people ask you questions through a “@reply” or direct messages, make sure you respond to them. You may have posted something interesting that caught their attention and they want to connect with you. Connect with these people and they may recommend you to their followers and so on.

Keep It Clean: Many people use twitter at work or a place to broad cast information. Profanity is not something they can afford to have flashing on their computer. Most people will immediately unfollow, block or worse yet report you as spam.

Just remember, tweet others the way you want to be tweeted.

Are you using Twitter the right way? This proven step by step System will teach you how.

    These are great tips. But I.ve never really done anything that might be making me loose so many followers. I tweet 5 maybe 10 Times a day, i dont use profanity in any of my tweets, and i try to engage with my followers as much as possible. I used to lose so many followers that i got bored, and i went to my setting and deleted all my tweet location, I had only under 2000 tweets so i had nothing to worry about. AND to my suprise, it got better. But currently i have almost reached 2000 Tweets and i,m losing followers again. I think i should maybe start a new account and delete this one.
