What is Twitter for?
(Twitter is a web site.)
OKAY BUT HOW DO I GET MORE FOLLOWERS THOUGH
Method 1: Be interesting

Method 2: Buy bot followers
e.g., $5 for 10k followers on fiverr
BUT THEY'RE NOT REAL PEOPLE THOUGH
Method 3: Interact with people
IRL (!?), @messaging, etc.
AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME
Method 4: The Singularity
of tweets are from bots.
∴ Become a bot yourself.

OKAY FAVING IS LAME THOUGH I WANT FOLLOWS
The follower of my follower

PLUS: improved experiment (thanks to heartbleed)
April 18 to May 10 (≅3 weeks)
followed 687, unfollowed 487 (still follow 200* on May 20)
BUT HOW MANY FOLLOWED BACK THOUGH
70 of the 687, 47 of the 487, 23 of the 200 (as of May 18)
That's about 10%
* Some ppl you can't even follow (only 187 actual follows).
