Harro's million and one ideas got me putting on my thinking cap and I came up with this to get twitter followers. As well as joining big names Filsaime, Kern, etc try Goggle Trends and look for names that are being talked about and then check to see if they have a twitter account. On trends today have been john madden, julissa brisman, cris collinsworth, lindsay clubine, susan roesgen, gina bianchini, kaseem penn, and on and on. Now obviously some of these folks are just people in the news but lots of them are celebrities who are currently hot. If they are hot then you can bet that twitter enthusiasts will seek them out, and who's face will they see on the front page of their account? Hopefully yours.
