    I've been playing around with twitter lately, and I'm getting about 20 people following me per day. However they don't seem very organic, seems like people are just adding a lot using scripts.

    I've yet to get one user to visit my site after 500 follows, 250 followers and I sent out 100 direct messages for fun.

    Does anyone have any tips on how to leverage twitter effectively, or any links to resources, or posts on it?

    For me, the key is getting followers that are niche specific. I use TweetAttacks to follow the followers of Twitter users that are specific to the niche of my website I'm trying to promote. If I was running a website about Mustangs, I would follow the followers of car related users.

    I have may follow/unfollow schedule set to a daily run of 190-199, which is pretty conservative, but I haven't had any accounts suspended for aggressive following/unfollowing since I implemented it. I did have an account temporarily suspended because of a bursts of posts that I hadn't intended to happen but I got it reinstated in about a week.

    Be sure to flesh out your profile. Have a pic (doesn't have to be a pic of you), add profile details, and change out the default background to something different and preferably related to the site you are promoting.

    Build multiple accounts and retweet your posts for a boost of synergy.

    Hey, thanks for the tips.

    I think I got most of the small things covered, just a matter of getting followers. What are the numbers like, do I need like 40K, also is it a good idea to start exchanging retweets with other users?
