A kick off to remember
So, how will your Twitter followers remember you? Start with a great kick off by working on your profile. Use a name that is simple and easy to remember. Make sure it reflect the strong points of your brand by putting up great profile picture which can be your face and establishing a solid biography so that others will easily remember who you are and what you are into. As much as possible avoid using logos, images or any graphics because Twitter users might get the wrong impression that is a spam account.
Establish web presence by posting them regularly but timely basis. Don’t flood them with a lot of messages because they might lose interest or worse unfollow you. If you tweet regularly there’s also no need to buy fake Followers on Twitter just to get some traction.
Hashtags connect you to people with similar interests and make your tweets more visible. But use them in moderation so try using one or two significant and fascinating hashtags that can enhance the quality of your tweet.

Try to get famous people to follow you like celebrities or any famous Twitter user. It will add credibility to your Twitter account.
