    I have 5 different Twitter accounts by 10 000 followers. The keyword what I was using to get followers was poker.
    Yesterday I was makeing some tweets but the results was 0 visitors.
    I was putting tweets 5 times in a row.
    What I am doing wrong? Help me someone whom knows this twitter stuff well!
    Thank you!

    Man, you were spamming your followers. If I were your follower I would definitely unfollow you ASAP.

    Offer them content. Useful information. Get people to click your content tweets and after that promote from time to time your offers.

    If you are screaming BUY BUY BUY nobody will buy.

    Get them interested in your content.

    Make a blog.

    Write on it every day.

    It will take 10 min per day to write a post.

    Submit the feed to twitter using the countless tools online.

    And from time to time tweet an offer.

    If you spam the shit out of them they will not click your links.

    Here's the truth about twitter; twitter users tend to have very low engagement with the website. They are among the passive users of any social networking site. Maybe they will log in once every other day to check thier tweets, but that's it. Most people sign up, get 5 or so followers, and never use it again. The people who are seling tweeting software tired al that stuff and came to the same conclusion so they decided to market software on how to make money on twitter instead of actually making money with twitter.

    Its easy, consider yourself to be one of your followers and then, analyze the scenario.

    A mistake you could have made is following all or mostly spammers like yourself by using the word poker as a keyword. I bet there are a lot of people on twitter that never twittered about a poker allthough they are interested in it or even play poker.

    I myself wasn't succesfull on twitter really either but never really had that kind of a following and frankly I find it really hard to believe the people not being able to cash in on that kind of an audience. Currently I'm building a following too.
    Stay the f*ck away from posting the same message five times in a row.
    Might work for some things but do you really want to risk an account with 10,000 getting banned?

    The problem with your 10000 followers is that they are junk followers. they just added you cuz they are other spammers or they need friends. People voluntarily add celebrities because they care about their lives, but why should anyone care about you? You have to give people are reason to want to add you.

    Poker is a very spam saturated keyword. I'm sure you merely added 10000 spammers.

    Try adding based on phrases. An actual human would perhaps write "I'm going to play poker with my friends" or something like that
