What factors go into determining how many Twitter followers you gain (and lose) each day? I analyzed thousands of accounts to find the answer.
The types of content you tweet have significant impacts on attracting and keeping followers.Hashtags probably aren't dead.Each tweet that includes an image, has a hashtag, is a retweet, or mentions someone associates with 2-6% more daily followers.
Just as it does with Rand, your account will likely have individualized factors that move the needle for you.You can explore these via Excel! Check your Followerwonk account for a complimentary spreadsheet of your Twitter activity.Don't forget to follow me @petebray so that I can test whether this blog post significantly moves my follower count! :) And let me know what you uncover.
