    I have 262,928 followers on twitter.
    & I have been wondering why my follower count hasn't been going up after I haven't tweeted for weeks. My followers do depend on my tweets, & I have been tweeting, but i've just been loosing followers.

    So I switched my username to another catchy handle. Gained about 7k, about 1k a day, but now I rack up only 200 a day.

    Help?

    You need to really monetize this. I know a guy who makes XX,XXX/mo from around that many followers.

    What niche are the followers?

    If they are all legit you could make some serious money.

    if you stop tweeting, stop following people and you're not a (twitter) celeb, why do you expect to gain 1k followers per day? just because you have 260k followers?

    you actually gain more than 200 new followers daily, i'd say at least twice/triple as much, but if you don't monitor it, you won't know for sure
    why do you gain not only 200, but a lot more? because hundreds of people unfollows you every day, you wouldn't even notice it until you gain more than you loose

    help? start tweeting again, "force" RTs, #shoutouts, start following responsive people

    if you want to continue increase your followers then you need to be active and regular tweeting in your account..
    i am getting 5000+ twitter followers daily..but i am tweeting regularly ..
    if i stop tweeting then ofcourse people cant follow you.
    its simple man !!

    Thats a lot of followers to get at twitter. However its not taken for granted that you will always keep on increasing them.

    Define "niche"?
    And yes, I've never b o u g h t followers.
    I would sometimes do "goals" with other accounts to gain followers, all real.
    And according to klout I'm almost at 1,000,000 ReTweets.

    I would love to make serious moolah, but it's hard now.

    That's crazy. PM your URL.
    I also am tweeting about every 1/2 to 1 hour.
    But how on gods earth do you gain 5k? I've gotten Top tweet & Retweeted by Celebs and never made more than 2k that day.
