Got +100 followers on Twitter in one day

I've started with my blog – https://thesatsat.com – about 6 months ago, and soon I realised that most of my audience and experts are on Twitter. Therefore, I tried to be more or less active there: tweeting and sharing my work, following the key experts, liking and commenting.

It was a New Year’s Eve when I came up with a new idea: a list on Twitter with Influencers in Earth Observation to follow in 2020.

Immediately, I made a call for contributors - asked people to mention their favourite accounts. Next morning, I was amazed to see that the whole thing went viral!

A few retweets by influencers with tens of thousands of followers brought enormous visibility — those 6 months of engagement were worth it!

All that day I kept adding people to the list, and soon it grew over 200. I’ve also tried to follow every other person and often got followed back.

It was an incredible growth hacking experience achieved in such a short period of time!
