Ledgard Twitter Race: Subscribe to my tweets

image Sure, it’s a petty thing, but I’ve been Mr Gretchen for a long time in some circles.  I’d like to prevent that from happening in the Twitter-Verse.  You can help prevent this by heading my shameless call to follow me on twitter via http://twitter.com/evolvingwe.

With blogging I started first, Gretchen called me a nerd, and very soon afterwards she was more addicted than I was and eventually way more popular. 

The same cycle is starting again in Twitter.  I started and she called the “tweet noise” cute with a hint of nerd.  Now she’s addicted to Twitter and goading me about her cult of followers starting to overtake mine. 

Well, here are the current stats:

gledgard: 63 Followers  evolvingwe:73

If you have any tips for generating followers quickly I’d love to hear them!

    It would be unsportsmanlike for me not to post that link… but I think I’m going to have to sink to that level. I’ll saying tracking her down on twitter an exercise left to the reader. I know twitter doesn’t make that easy, but your all smart people. :-)

    oh no! this could get competitive and spammy :)

  5. unfollowing evolvingWe, following gledgard…

    Just kidding. I wouldn’t do that to you. Then again, how much is one follower worth to you?

    Have you thought about setting up a referral program and paying per each impression / referral / completed signup?

    As for advice on getting followers… don’t block the bots!

    :-) I’m pretty sure bots make up half of my followers. That’s my core audience. Just like my blog… I’m writing for the google crawler.
