So you are new to Twitter and you want to find people to follow. Good people. People relevant to your industry or markets that you find interesting. How do you find them?
There are sites that offer tools to help you find people to follow – they are very useful tools in finding new people to follow.
Twellow is cool because you can search for people by catagory. The services also tells you how many followers a person has. This is important becuase if they have a lot of followers, then they should have interesting content. I always check a persons Follwers/Follow ratio. If they have a lot of followers but they don’t follow many people, then they are likely not going to follow you. I look for a mutral follow relationship with most of my follows as I belive Twitter is all about creating new opprotunities for building relationships. Expect to spend some time on Twellow as you will have to navigate from catagory to catagory to find the people that you find interesting.
Just Tweet It Just Tweet It is a directory. If you want others to find you – sign up! Then look for other people in the catagories that interest you. Nice interface and easy to use.
