Let me get right to the point: there’s too much nonsensical social media “wisdom” out there. You don’t need all that. All you need is this simple, 200-word guide to get your follower count through the roof.

Are you ready? Let’s go!

Step 1

Sign up for Twitter. This might go without saying, but because human beings keep proving to be daft, it’s actually worth saying. Signing up for Twitter is simple and anyone can do it. Even Smillew Rahcuef.

Step 2

Acknowledge that the size of your Twitter following has nothing to do with you and is — for 99% of the populace — no measure of quality or value. This is really important because humility is a hugely lacking skill these days.

Step 3

This is the most vital step. Think about the number of followers you want, then follow that exact number of strangers plus 10%. For instance, if you want 7,000 followers, follow 7,700 random people. Follow-for-follow is the only way to reach a sizable follower count.

Following thousands of people can be a laborious task for your thumbs, so remember to take regular breaks and drink plenty of water.

Thank you and good luck!
