There’s a common problem I see with a lot of new Twitter users. They’re excited about the platform and meeting new people. But they’re stuck at 5,000 followers. And then they get frustrated and quit using the platform and their digital marketing efforts.
Me? I never had that problem. I couldn’t get past 2,000 followers. And that was after years of trying. Yep. I admit. I’m a quitter. I’m not the kind to really stick with something. Call me lazy.
But a few months back I stumbled across a Twitter User and a Twitter Tool that changed social media for me.
Long story short, after 4 months of using the tool as I was taught, I had 40,000 new followers. All I do is use this one tool to do 6 different things every day.
[Update in July 2018: Over 64,000 followers now. It just keeps growing and growing.]
Your super-smart social media manager that’s helping millions of creators like you grow online every day. Find and share content your audience will love.
All you do is log in and follow the suggested steps because
It recommends people to follow based on your interests
It tells you who your new followers are so you can follow them back and engage with them
It shows you which tweets you should like and comment on based on similar interests
It suggests retweets your followers will love and…
It also tells you who stopped following you so you can focus on people who are interested in your tweets
You can also connect your blogs and other social media accounts to share your content on other platforms for SEO and backlinks.
It allows you to retweet your blog posts several times automatically over the next 30 days…which means it saves you the time of having to go in and do that manually.
So, not only do you get your content promoted to your Twitter followers, but it also pushes them out to your other social media platforms as well. That means you get new engagements and followers on Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Pinterest, Youtube, Shopify, and numerous others I won’t take the time to name here.
Tap. Tap. Share.
40,000 new Twitter followers in four months aren’t something to shake a stick at.
The Easy Solution To Getting Unstuck On Twitter
Going back to the main problem Twitter users face that I mentioned right at the beginning of hitting the 5000 following limit?
CrowdFirehas a really easy solution. Just use their unfollow tool. It shows you exactly who’s not interested in your content or engaging with you so you can find other people who are.
But the best part is that CrowdFireis totally compliant with Twitter guidelines…which means that you won’t get your Twitter account banned or suspended like you do with other tools.
Ahem, yes. I admit that I’ve been there and done that. I tried out this new tool that promised to be easier than CrowdFire. Week later I got suspended for a few days. And I wasn’t even going over the daily Twitter limits.
So, I’m back to using CrowdFire again and growing again.
At last count, I was up at 45,250 followers.
Yesterday, my CrowdFirereport card shows I got 403 new followers. And that’s because it was a really busy day at work and I didn’t have time to do much more than the basics.
But you know what? It’s not about the numbers.
Why I Really Use Twitter & My Secret Motivation
The real fun on Twitter is getting to meet amazing new people and make new friends. I’ve met and interacted with:
Authors from Australia
Business consultants from South Africa
Scriptwriters from the USA and
I even got a nice shirt from someone in Brazil
People that I would never have met in ‘real’ life.
And remember that guy who showed me how to use CrowdFireand follow the 6 Step Formula?

People love a good short story, and this is storytelling at its best. What I like the most is the crisp and funny and colorful language and likable characters smashing the evil Locryians while trying to save the world and fulfill a prophecy. The plot twist at the end was really good too. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to read something fresh or for a change of pace. I rate the book 5 Big Stars.

I thoroughly enjoyed this short, but sweet little story which follows Art as he battles wild beasts and a portal-opening villain named Lucien. From the get-go, this story was heavily action-packed and very pacy. Not only that, this story offers a glimpse into a whole new magical world that the author is planning on writing about. This book is just the beginning, and what an exciting read it was! Read 'Art's Final Battle' here >>
Art is a scientist who has developed DNA-splicing technology to end disease and heal the sick.
Things take a turn for the worse when an ancient alien race tries to get their hands on his technology. They kill his wife. They kidnap his daughter. And force him to splice together DNA between a human and alien body.
Their goal? Create a host shell for an evil Locrylian demon. He plans to find a body, overrun the planet and enslave mankind.
Art manages to rescue his daughter and tries to escape. But the Myxolians capture him and force him to go on a suicide mission to close down Lucien’s portal.
They drop him off at the edge of a booby-trapped forest with a small team. They are immediately attacked by savage Axalot Hounds. Art learns that these are the smallest creatures that will be coming through the portal. The quaggars they truly fear will be much larger and almost impossible to kill.
Then Art watches helplessly as his team comes under attack by snipers hidden in the forest. And to top it all off, their one chance at victory get sucked away through a portal.
Now, Art is wounded, desperate, and at wit’s end.
Can he do whatever it takes to defeat the evil villain, close the portal, and save his daughter before it’s too late?
What will happen when everyone realizes that he isn’t the savior they had hoped for?
Lucien was once a regular Locrylian. That is until his jealous wife tried to poison him. A friend managed to save his soul even though the poison destroyed his body. Ever since then, he has wandered between worlds looking for a body he can inhabit once again.
He finds Art’s DNA-splicing technology and realizes he could use it to create a body for himself. Lucien forces Art into mixing Locrylian genes into a human body. Lucien almost succeeds. The Myxolians stop the transfer before his new body is complete through. Now, he is weak and dying. Lucien only has a few days to open a portal to transport his people from their dying planet before it’s too late.
Lucien plans to wipe out the human army, dominate the earth, and enslave mankind. Once they have control, he plans to transport his people to their new home on earth.
But can he succeed when Art and team kill off most of his men? Could Art be the awaited savior of his sworn enemies? Lucien has to make sure that Art won’t be able to foil his plans.
Elijah was once a wealthy merchant with many Locrylian slaves. Then the slaves rebelled, killed most of the population, and ravaged the land. Elijah escaped to earth. His sole mission in life is to keep the remaining band of Myxolians safe and avenge his losses.
His people believe the ancient prophecies of a Chosen One who restore their land and lead them home. He believes that Art is the one who will save them and regains hope once again.
He takes Art under his wing and tries to convince him that he could be their savior. Elijah tries to teach him to use the power freely available to one in his position. Art is stubborn though and refuses to believe.
Elijah realizes that they are on a suicide mission. He knows that he may not survive long enough to close the portal. But he persists in trying to pressure Art into realizing who he is and accept his destiny. Elijah chooses to believe that Art will be there to keep things under control once the portal opens. But when the portal opens, he realizes that Art really can’t control the wild beasts.
Now, how will they close the portal and stop the attack? Who will restore their land and lead them home? Is this the end of his race?
