  3. Engage in conversation with those discussing your industry. Interaction with other users is paramount to successful networking on Twitter.

  5. The most important thing to keep in mind is that becoming popular on Twitter takes time and commitment. Just because you are struggling to get your numbers up right away doesn’t mean that it won’t eventually work for you. Stick with it and you are bound to see success.
