  1. Hey Mike, some practical tips here… many of them can be automated, making the process faster and simpler. A tool that I like is Crowdfire. It’s a Twitter growth tool which let’s you get relevant followers with features like Copy followers and Keyword follow. Schedule your tweets to get maximum reach with Publish, manage non-followers and inactive followers and engage with new users using Auto direct message. I’ve been using this tool for quite a while and find it to be one of the simplest app to grow followers organically.
