    Adding to your points above, one of the most basic suggestions before you even start following your friends is to have a good bio written about yourself, have your real pic, etc. Have a good background design which reflects your personality and be yourself while tweeting, because nobody wants fake updates.

    RankUno –

    Totally agree and I should have put that so thank you for adding. In addition make sure your bio links to something – your company, your blog, your linkedin profile – something. When I look at people who follow me the first thing I do is link to their profile to see who they are. Well written ones are more likely to get a follow.

    Thanks again, Mark
