Take great photos
No matter what you’re doing, there’s always space to make your Twitter more eye-catching. A lot of Twitter users share mediocre photos they’ve found elsewhere.

One such tool is SproutSocial. Perfect for corporations but also good for individuals, it allows you to get into the nitty-gritty of your account and see what works. See where your views and likes are coming from, where your traffic is redirected and how to take advantage of these trends. Understanding the content that’s doing the best for you is understanding which content will work best in future.
Keep The Content Coming
Even when you don’t have something specific on your mind, it’s always great to keep your channel open and broadcasting. Nothing gets you unfollowed quite so quick as long periods of silence. However, this doesn’t mean you should be just sending drivel out every day you don’t have something specific in mind. By all means, avoid the good morning posts as much as you can. They share absolutely nothing and have no real purpose. Use the time to directly contact your followers, too. This site has a lot of tips on the types of messages that you can send out in ‘dry spells’ to keep not only communication open but conversation as well. Just put some thought into it and make it genuine.
