  • Self promotion is acceptable but keep it minimal.
  • Be an active Tweeter – a few tweets per day is recommended.
  • Don’t overshare the personal stuff – You’re likely to lose followers, so keep the rants to a minimum.
  • Use #hashtags­ properly­­ – Hashtags can help generate and attract more followers if you’re using it correctly.
