Top 237 Twitter Users Who Will Follow You Back

As Twitter hits its stride and emerges as a juggernaut in social media, the top users on the site are distancing themselves from the pack.  The race to 1,000,000 followers will be achieved in a few months by some accounts.  With such strong followings, many new or inactive Twitter users may not think that there are top accounts that will follow them back.

On the contrary, there are many. In fact, many users with tens of thousands of followers will follow just about everyone back.  Some use tools to automatically follow anyone who follows them. Others actually go through and manually add their new followers. Regardless of the method, these 237 accounts will most likely follow you back, even if you’re a Twitter newbie.

How to Use this List

Regardless of what stage you are in Twitter, if your goal is to accumulate active followers, the people on this list are good for that.  Most on the list are active and interact with their followers on a daily basis. They retweet to their followers when they find something interesting on or off Twitter and many of them post high-quality tweets.

Some do not, and you’ll be able to identify the spammers and self-serving users from what appears in your stream. This list has not been validated for quality (maybe a future blog post) but rather to help new and experienced users grow their followers.

Unfortunately, I did the list backwards. Anyone who wants to grow their Twitter account should start from the bottom and work their way up, adding all 237 either all at once or spread out over time. The advantage of adding from this list is two-fold:

Obviously, as these users have demonstrated a willingness to follow those who follow them, it gives you a likely additional follower.

The side-benefit of adding from this list is that once you follow them, your account will, for a short period of time, be at the top of their followers list. Many users build their Twitter followers by adding the followers of users such as these, so being at the top increases your account’s exposure and the number of opportunities for other users to follow you.

This blog does not condone “Twitter Follower Spam” or whatever you would like to call the practice of adding a ton of followers, unfollowing them later, and adding more in a vicious cycle of growth, but hey, it works, and many people do it. This is just a resource to help users at every level build their accounts as quickly as they would like.

  32. First off I would like to say wonderful blog!
    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind
    in getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or tips? Thanks!

  33. FOLLOW FOR A FOLLOW !! !! !!

  37. For latest information you have to go to see the web and
    on internet I found this web site as a most excellent web site
    for most up-to-date updates.

  38. Hello, Neat post. There’s a problem together with your site in web explorer, may check this? IE still is the marketplace chief and a large portion of people will pass over your great writing because of this problem.

  39. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.

    The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.
    Cheers

    thanks guys =)

  47. Make sure that your personal tweets have some meaning.
    Is it better to post something to our Face – Linked – Ning – Space pages, because that
    post provides personal context, starts conversation that the rest of our friends can
    follow along and helps you steadily build an audience over time; to blog amid a topic-based
    community, where a your post may “go viral” on
    the blogosphere and get thousands of “one time” hits and trackbacks; or is
    it worth the effort to use blogging and social networks
    in combination by drawing the attention of your friends and followers to your blog via a post and URL from your social network pages.
    What is more to the point is that you need three things to convey an appropriate
    and well-done online message to your audience via your video:.
