    I didn't write this but it's available for free in a Telegram chat, so it's not copyrighted.

    The information has been extremely helpful for me, so I'm sharing it here and will put a link to the Telegram chat at the bottom for anyone who wants more. It's written for Twitter but you can easily apply the method to Instagram or Tumblr or wherever.

    CHOOSING AN ACCOUNT THEME

    There are essentially three types of Twitter account - personal/catfish, themed, brand/business. This guide will focus on creating a themed account. Personal/Catfish type accounts can gain actives very quickly but they do not require much in the way of research to create one - either be yourself or pretend to be someone else, done. Brand/Business accounts shouldn’t be in my chat looking for a free digital marketing plan.

    Your own interests will be very important in creating a successful themed account. You don’t necessarily need to be able to create 100% original content but if you don’t know anything about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu you’re obviously going to have a really difficult time keeping the attention of people who know all about it a.k.a. the people who you’d like to follow your Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu account. If you don’t think memes about depression are funny then how do you expect to entertain people who do?


    So you have to start by looking at the things you enjoy. If you actually use Twitter and follow things/people that you like, this is very easy. All you have to do is look at your favorite accounts and ask yourself one question...

    If I have a “secret” to creating themed Twitter accounts, this is it, so make sure you understand this part:

    “Can I take one piece of this account’s theme and create a micro-theme of that for a totally new account?”

    Micro-theme is a term that I made up but people have been doing it on Twitter for years even if they don’t know it. Let’s use food as an example and explanation of how and why to employ a micro-theme in your strategy.

    There is at least one food account with millions of followers and many others with hundreds of thousands of followers. If you decided right now that you were going to make a food account then you would have a very difficult time competing with the established giants in that niche.

    Can you easily gain non-active/spam followers from followback and tweeting the right keywords to get follows from everyone who has a bot set up to mass follow fatasses?

    Yes.

    Is that “growth” ultimately meaningless?

    In my opinion, yes.

    But what if you make an account that focuses only on one type of food that is still massively popular?

    Like pizza…

    If you look, you will find that other people have already had this idea for micro-theme accounts about pizza. Some have grown to tens of thousands of followers, a couple even close to a hundred thousand followers. Smaller than the giant food accounts above, yes, but still quite huge and much easier to grow because of the tighter targeting and easier to create content because you know exactly what your followers want - pizza.

    You can take this idea even further by narrowing the theme down to only screenshots of people saying pizza is better than sex or only photos of people who dropped their pizza. You can even cross the micro-theme with another niche of content like animals and only do tweets with pictures of animals eating pizza.

    Once you start looking at creating a Twitter account with this strategy, the possibilities are endless.

    depression > clorox memes > spongebob clorox memes or 2017 clorox memes, etc.

    baddies > tattooed baddies > latina tattooed baddies or baddies with spiritual tattoos, etc.

    (It is recommended to read the #usernames1, #usernames2 and #content commands at this time for what to do next, which may also help you decide on a theme for your account.)

    I can't recommend this chat enough. I'll most likely keep making threads like this to share these guides but if you have Telegram then you can join the chat yourself for more of this advice: https://t.me/TwitterGrowth

    The micro will not get you that much of followers but it's good and not having that much competition.
    That will make you grow faster :p
