From their blogs to your Twitter stream

One of my favorite ways to engage new people on Twitter is to bring them over from their blogs, like this:
  1. Find small blogs, ones with only a few comments on each post.
  2. Read a few posts.
  3. Leave an excellent comment.
  4. Type your Twitter username (with @) in the name field of the comment.
  5. Link to your Twitter account for your comment URL.

Bloggers without many comments tend to pay particular attention to the comments they do get. Plus, most bloggers are also on Twitter. So they tend to have a high click-through rate on these types of comments.

Once they’re following, you take it from there.
