1,000 Twitter followers for No CS Degree

Pete Codes @petecodes

So I crossed over 1,000 followers for my website yesterday. I got a big influx when I published an interview with Cher Scarlett:

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
