I am a heavy Twitter user. I enjoy following a variety of accounts and currently follow over 4300 people. If I want to ensure that I do not miss someone’s tweets, I add them to one of my Twitter lists.

1. How To Quickly Find The Right People Who Follow You On Twitter
I could just reach out to them directly, but it always helps to have a prior connection. I’ve seen this prove true many times.
Anyone who has had a Twitter account for longer than a day has been spammed with offers of Twitter followers in exchange for money. These offers may be tempting to someone very motivated to grow their Twitter account follower numbers fast.
Not only is buying Twitter followers a bad idea - one which could harm your account in multiple ways - it's also ineffective.
Tweet this: Don't buy followers - it's harmful and ineffective.
There is a better way ...

If you are new to Twitter we understand how challenging it can be to grow your account and gain followers. It is difficult to build momentum when the account has very few followers. This is a classic catch-22 situation. The fewer followers you have the harder it is to gain new followers and the more followers you have the easier it is to gain new followers.
UPDATE OCTOBER 2017: Please note that we have removed this feature as per Twitter's request. You can find out more here.
The power of content marketing is unlocked when the right content reaches the right people. The ability to quickly distribute content to the right audience is a powerful strategy.
If you manage a blog, you want to ensure the content reaches the people most likely to read it. If you have an ebook or content product, you want to get it in front of influential people who might share it. If you have a crowdfunding campaign, a press release, or even an actual product to sell, you want the relevant content to reach media contacts and bloggers direct.
ManageFlitter's "Bulk Engage" feature now makes this possible.

Twitter announced that they have introduced a new "mute" button. Twitter have noted that they are progressively rolling out this feature so you may not have access to this feature via Twitter yet.
We have already updated ManageFlitter for all users to include this new mute option. You can now identify and select Twitter accounts that you are following and mute them in the same way you identify and follow/unfollow accounts on ManageFlitter.
Please note: you can still use this mute feature via ManageFlitter even if you don't yet have access to this feature via Twitter.
This mute feature will also work with the ManageFlitter Remote Account Management feature.
Twitter is a real-time social network that allows you to communicate with people in 140 characters or less. Twitter gives you the ability to follow or be followed by other Twitter accounts in an asynchronous manner.
This means that if you follow a specific Twitter account they don’t necessarily need to follow you back in order for you to see their tweet stream.Read this post
The Twitter profile is an important and often overlooked element of a Twitter account. The content of a Twitter profile is even more important when it applies to an account that belongs to a business.
The benefits of optimizing* your Twitter profile include the following:
- With the right keywords, more people you want to find you will find you (because you will show up in search results)
- Most likely, a higher percentage of people who view your profile will follow you if you have a well crafted profile
- More people will take the actions you want them to take upon finding your profile (such as clicking through to your URL

Sometimes it is necessary to block another Twitter user.
Harassment by another Twitter user, or SPAM/bot/fake accounts following you may all be best dealt with by blocking.
According to information on Twitter's website blocked users cannot;
- Add your Twitter account to their lists.
- Have their @replies or mentions show in your mentions tab (although these Tweets may still appear in search).
- Follow you.
- See your profile picture on their profile page or in their timeline.
Twitter doesn't provide any direct way via the main or mobile Twitter.com site of reviewing a list of who you have blocked.
Twitter's rules, limits and regulations can at times be a little vague and confusing. These limits are put in place to stop people, businesses or automated programmes from abusing the Twitter network. These rules are vague by design in order to prevent reverse engineering by parties who want to abuse the Twitter network.
Whilst these rules have been put in place by Twitter to prevent genuine abuse of their system, legitimate Twitter users can sometimes inadvertedly fall foul of these Twitter rules.
Having an understanding of some of these Twitter rules can help prevent your account getting suspended by Twitter.
Below we have listed 3 guidelines to help prevent your Twitter account from getting suspended by Twitter. Please note that these guidelines apply regardless of whether you are using ManageFlitter to manage your Twitter account.
