Yeah, but it can take a long time to build a network of followers. I'm asking if there's a clever way, a faster way or method to increase traffic of followers, some sort of a generator - a twitter traffic generator of followers

There are no easy routes, otherwise spammers would have a field day. Write tweets that are interesting and build a base organically.

Thanks for your feedback.

I agree with you.

I did a search and found the following articles:

17 Ways You can Use Twitter

I find these items to be more relevant for me:

#1 Personal Branding
#2 Get Feedback
#4 Direct traffic
#5 Read News
#6 Make New Friends
# 11 Take Notes
#12 Event Updates
#13 I'll use the Twitter Search
#14 Acquire Votes: I'll be sending links to my stories that will be on my website.

I'm not sure about #8 Use it as a ToDo list. Have you used it?

And, I found this article: How to Get More Twitter Followers: Some Methods That Work


And, I asked my virtual friends on Twitter, and one of them suggested this:

twitterfollowersbot.com

It claims that for $5 you can get 100 followers with the same interests.
Is it worth it?
Is it something you would do?

This is the funny part: I asked my Twitter friends if they've tried it -- My Twitter friends include: one physicist, one math prof, a couple of economists and two economics students (I'm a math major student.) -- None of them have tried it. They're waiting for others to try it and then study it.

I'm also looking for some feedback. I would to hear from others who have used it, and are still using it, and from those who dropped it.

Greg,

And, I need to improve my website, to build it organically, as you mentioned it earlier.

I think I found the right tools to do just that.

I follow TrendCentral on my second Twitter account

And I came across this article : Trendcentral: The New Jury Duty? - HOW PEOPLE ARE USING THE WEB TO SIZE UP THEIR OWN BEHAVIOR

A new crop of websites allows users to ask for anonymous feedback about themselves
from both friends and strangers, When assessment is solicited.

The tools I think I'll be using are:

- Digital Slambooks : failin.gs
- Report Cards : BetterMe
- People's Court : Side Taker and Instant Jury

I may use issues raised on The Marriage Ref on my website to get reactions, thus creating more traffic.

I've just discovered these tools. I need to read about them.

What do you think about these tools?
