  1. An important point to remember though is that Twitter is actually
    a social media site, so don’t go overboard with self promotion. Many of the
    people who you choose to follow, will return the compliment and
    follow you back and before you know it you will have built up a list of followers.
    Lastly make sure you post clear, concise messages which contain updated and to the
    point message while not sounding too promotional as such or else people could back out
    from following you. Not only will these help you
    establish credibility, you probably won.
