Twitter allows you to make find friends in any number of ways. First, you can inform your friends, family members, and colleagues that you are on Twitter and request them to join you there. You can also add your Twitter page link to your email signature, enabling the recipients of your emails to find and join you on Twitter.
Alternatively, you can search through the endless list of Twitter users to find people who share your interests and become friends with them. Twitter also presents tools that will help you find and follow other Twitter users.
1. Twellow and JustTweetIt
Twellow and JustTweetIt are sites that can introduce you to other Twitter users who share your interests and goals. Look up their profiles and study the ways in which they use Twitter. Before you decide to follow them, study their blogs and read their bios. Follow them only if they share similar interests with you. You will be wasting your time if you follow people who are interested in a niche that has nothing to do with you.
2. Twitter Search
Twitter Search is another great way to find like-minded people. Twitter Search is Twitter’s special search engine that is not only easy to use, but also gives great results. Use it to find profiles that might interest you.
Once you decide to follow another Twitter user, you will gain access to the network of Twitter users they are following. You will find that it is humanly impossible to read every tweet that is posted on Twitter. But you can glance through them and browse various profiles to find something that interests you. Check the tweets every now and then for a message that might be related to your niche or interests.
Don’t be in a hurry to build your network. Following other Twitter users means opening yourself up to the rest of the Twitter community. When you follow other Twitter users, you make it easy for them to find you. Therefore, follow only those who might be of some use to you.
