So I crossed over 1,000 followers for my website yesterday. I got a big influx when I published an interview with Cher Scarlett: https://www.nocsdegree.com/falling-down-and-getting-back-up-with-the-help-of-code/
She has 16,000 followers and a lot of the interviewees I've been targeting have large followings. This obviously helps get my Twitter page shared to more people.
Every time someone likes or retweets a tweet of mine, I follow them. Usually a high number will then follow back.
My highest performing tweet was when I asked people what they would recommend someone else to do. My takeaway is asking people their advice is a good way to get engagement instead of talking to them.
"If a friend wanted to learn coding what would you tell them to do first? #100daysofcode #codenewbies"
A common tactic I use is to tweet a quote from the article and then add a link as well as mention the person. This is my 3rd best Tweet in terms of impressions (9,000):
"Don't overthink which programming language or framework to learn first. If you ask 10 people you'll get 10 different answers. Just start with a YouTube video or tutorial that appeals to you and go from there." @marckohlbrugge https://www.nocsdegree.com/interviews-wip-and-betalist-founder-marc-kohlbrugge-taught-himself-to-code/ …
