    • Are you going anywhere?
    • Have you been anywhere?
    • What are you doing today?
  14. Ask followers to help spread your message

I am not suggesting that you take this list, sit down at your computer and tweet all of it in one go - as this will probably lose you some followers! But if you haven't tweeted for a while and have a bit of 'tweeters block' take a look down the list, choose one and tweet away.

I find it helps to imagine someone from your target audience (a real person that you actually want to "speak" to if possible).

And then have a think about what they would like to hear about.

If you are using Twitter and want to increase your followers so many peoples say that you must do tweet regularly, but many times people stuck to write tweets regularly because they have not an idea that what should they tweet. It is just like that one student starts paper writing, and in middle, he totally blank that what should they write because he wants to complete writing so then he used some trending news and other things to complete the writing. The same thing to do in tweets regularly, you can use trends and hashtags and you can also share poetry with your Twitter family.
