How to get 14k+ new Twitter followers overnight

    These top line metrics look nice, sure.

    But is this the same as "building an audience"? my gut says no.

      It can be if he capitalize on this opportunity to actually create something meaningful like selling his product or maybe create a newsletter and do it repeatedly.

      1. 2

        Selling his product is meaningful? A lot of his threads are already saying "fame has gotten into your head" and "I'm unfollowing you".

      2. 1

        He could sell a product teaching people how to go viral on Twitter :)

        1. 1

          You mean creating the type of product he was mocking in that viral tweet? I'm sure that will work great with his new following 😉

    LOL - I saw that thread when he was still around 800 or so, I believe... Glad to see it has gone ballistic overnight.

    But once again, this is a lesson that most of the things that work for other people are simply not repeatable. Sure someone else could come up with a funny thread that is similar, and see only a handful of followers added. Timing and luck play such a huge part.

    But still, I hope it inspires someone else to come up with a pithy, funny tweet that may be the next 'Steve Lamar'... 😅

    The power of humor is definitely underrated.

    Uhm, how?

    Paying for more bots?
    Cross-promoting with "influencers"?

      ok, so that was an epic joke that I didn't get. Picked up by people, also by TweetmasterFlex, featured in IH newsletter, BuzzFeed and that's the secret sauce of virality. 👏

    Very fun!! Absolutely this must be on threadok.com 🧵🧵🧵🧵🧵🧵

    The power of threads!

  6. 1

    Humor wins. People like reading fun stories. I like it :)

    amazing power of the internet. saw it when he had like 400 followers. My reply to his tweet got like 3k likes and I had around 200k impressions on that reply itself. I can't imagine stats for the original tweet.

    About the people trying to say this or that on the tweet, I would just say - people, relax :D

  8. 1

    It was epic. I started to follow the thread on Sunday when he has like 12k followers.

  9. 1

    Lol I saw this tweet and he was already at 2K. Good for him, was a funny thread.

  10. 1

    I saw this thread when he was at 157. I didn’t expect this to blow up the way it did.

    Twitter is weird. Self-referential humor helps.

  11. 1

    Great, now you'll get about 100 people to see/engage with your tweet as opposed to 5.

  12. 1

    I don't get it. He didn't say anything.

  13. 1

    Hahahaha I love this. I'm thinking about it and then I laugh to myself. Brilliant.

  14. 1

    This is HILARIOUS!!! Congrats to him!

  15. 1

    Wait, how the hell did that happen?

    1. 4

      He basically wrote a thread covering his pitiful Twitter growth over the past few months. Ironically, the thread went viral and now he has 80x more followers. Combined humor with a situation people can relate to.

      1. 1

        I especially liked the meta comments he added, like he had some premonition he had landed on the One True Way for going viral.
