Sometimes I think that being focused on how many followers you have is a lot like the early days of websites - when the raw traffic number was all people looked at rather than the quality and targeting of traffic.
There seems to be a parallel with Twitter followers. The number itself doesn't have much value if it's mostly people who never really interact with you, or worse yet, just automated bots.
So what I'm wondering about is why you want a lot of followers - that is, how do you hope to see benefit personally, professionally, etc.

tedster, I believe you misread the posting. He's not asking for help getting followers, he's asking us to follow him to learn how to get followers. IE, I think this is spam.

You may be right, but he didn't say "follow me" - and I can keep a good eye on him without doing that. He does have a remarkable number of followers for posting so few tweets, and with very thin content. I only follow accounts who tweet things that I care about and I think most people are the same.
I'm hoping for a reply from atanughosal, here - and I do hope he's not offering one of those silly "get 100 followers for free" services. It does sort of look that way right now.

Isn't he following as about many people who are following him?
Is that the secret to gaining quality followers?

Only if they care about what you Tweet and don't feel abused. Otherwise the minute you crank up the tweeting frequency, the unfollows crank up, too. And if you're not actively tweeting, then what's the point?

Tedster I agree.
I was following a top blogger from Australia but for the past couple months he was in a Tweet frenzy, maybe using automated tweets.
I became annoyed with like 12 tweets everyday about haircuts and offers to sell me ebooks and other irrelevant tweets and unfollowed. I wrote and told him why I unfollowed.
I visit the blog once a week now.

One of the most important things you can do is engage other members who give you an @ mention in their tweets. Sometimes you may tweet on a relatively obscure topic and someone you're not following makes a reply. Notice it and reply to them. It's sort of like making new friends by not ignoring people.

Here's another tip - whenever you tweet, make sure the message would make sense to a new reader - or at least be intriguing to them. You never know when someone's search will turn up your tweet, but if it's not comprehensible, then you've lost a potential follower.

You are a little bit silent since you've been suspended atanughosal, i want to have a eye on your account but is impossible at this time.
