We have already established that Twitter is a two-way communication Social Media Network.

Now you want to start tap into the power of utilizing the two-way communications options Twitter allows you to use.

The Twitter @ replies is one of the best way to start two-way communications on Twitter.

When you send an @ replies this message will go directly to the @ reply box of the user you sent it too. But the real power of the @ replies is that all your followers will see this message.

You can also send an @ replies to peeps that don’t follow you.

Of course with these kind of powerful option with @ replies it is a chance for abusing this.

Some simple @ replies rules;

Don’t use @ replies to spam people

If you send me tweets like @username please check out this link – this will usually turn me off. And I will then check more of your tweets out and see if this is a pattern, if so I will unfollow and block you. Note: @ replies from people that are blocked will NOT show up in your timeline. So if someone spams you then;
a) report them to the Twitter @spam team
b) unfollow them
c) block them

Make @ replies beneficial for all your followers

Remember that when you the @ replies it not only goes to the user you directed the @ reply too, but to all of your followers. Therefore put some thoughts into it, and make sure that everyone in some way can understand it.

Add power to @ replies

Send @ replies to a group of your followers. #followfriday is an excellent example of how to send @ replies to a group. Your tweets can look something like this:

#followfriday I endorse @username1, @username2, @username3

This tweet will go directly to the @ replies box of the user I have mentioned, plus to all my followers.

Now the real power starts kick in when @username1 start retweet this tweet to all his/hers followers, and @username2 and @username3 start doing the same.

Follow up on @ replies

If someone sends or mention you in an @ replies, make sure you send them Thank You note in an @ replies. If they have a question, comment or provided some information that you can benefit from make sure to follow up. And give qualified feedback to the @ replies.

My little Secret Tip: Setting yourself up for finding quality followers from top blog posts

Many of my followers and people I follow on Twitter daily share some high quality blog posts within my niche. Twitter authorities often write these posts. The trick here is to get in early on these posts, and make your comments there. Most top blogs today allows you to put in a link to your blog/website and most important they allow you to put your Twitter link there. If the blog don’t allow a Twitter link, then make sure you have your Twitter link visible on your blog/website.

After you have posted your comments that include your blog/website link plus your Twitter link you now want to do two things:

1. Put a link to this article on your website/blog
2. Tweet the link to the original blog where you made your comment

I recommend doing this at least on 5 various blogs per day. Then when you have done that you put your own blog/website into effect. And if you have an article ready now is the time to post it. Then you tweet the link to your article.

First you created a track back to the original blog post, and then you followed up with providing some traffic back to the blog.

#Bonus tip

Participate in informative webinars that talks about Twitter. Many of these webinars allows you to post your Twitter link. Here you will find some real quality followers.

I highly recommend Twittalk.tv

NOTE: Set your followers goal: I will get x followers within 3 months using The Simple Followers Guide.

Set a realistic goal, unless you are a celebrity don't set a goal higher then 1000. You are not prepared for handling any higher amount of followers yet.

#followfriday has become one of the best ways to endorse your friends and followers.

Friday is one of the best days to pick up new quality followers.

I recommend that you start out with endorsing friends and followers that you believe to provide you with some of the best information on Twitter.

Don't sit and wait for others to endorse yo. The best approach is to start out give yourself, then you eventually will get back in abundance.

Every Friday if someone send me an @ reply or Retweet one of my tweets I then make sure to thank them, and also endorse them through #followfriday. This is a great way to give back to your friends and followers, and they will then reward you back.

I also endorse some that I follow that provide some great information, but they are not following me. Now I also start experience the same, that people who not follow me is starting to endorse me due to my participation and information that I share.

NOTE: when you endorse your friends and followers by giving them a #followfriday make sure you do it in this format;

#followfriday @friendone, @friendtwo, @friendthree ...

When you endorse your friends and followers always make sure you put #followfriday in the start of the tweet. Many of the third party programs that runs statistics on #followfriday picks up this as the correct endorsement format.

Avoid using the following format;

#followfriday - @friendone - @friendtwo - @friendthree ...

Some of the third party statistic programs consider this format as unendorsements.

Retweets (tweets including RT or Retweet) are not included when calculating your endorsements.
