One of the easiest way to boost followers and engagement on Twitter is simply by hitting the ‘like’ heart button. It’s non-intrusive, quick and easy, and gives thanks to the person that took the time to write the tweet.
‘It’s a simple gesture of thanks, and it serves to connect you with people who are already interested in your content.’ - Buffer
This should be used alongside your engagement activity, so aim to keep a nice balance of liking and commenting/sharing.
Do you make use of the ‘like’ button? Try giving it a go today: like anyone that mentions you in their tweets, then monitor your account to see if you gain any new followers. Quick, simple and straightforward, and it could make a real difference to your account.
