Pioneer founders helping each other build a community on Twitter.
Shared by louisneilkorsten · 162d ago · 28 comments

A while ago, I saw a post that encouraged Pioneers to follow each other on Twitter. I tried Twitter a while ago but never really got into it.

I've come to realise how important it is for a founder to establish his own personal presence on the internet. I think it's important for customers to be able to see and communicate directly with a founder.

I've therefore decided to dive back into Twitter, it would be awesome if as many Pioneers got involved as possible. However, it doesn't just end at following each other, I think actually engaging with fellow Pioneers on Twitter is important.

Therefore, drop your Twitter profile link/handle in the comments, follow other Pioneers who post their links and make sure to follow back when others follow you.

Big fan of Twitter. Happy to give y'all a follow to help build your audience.

Although, what you really need to do is simply tweet more and comment/engage more. The more you do that, the more algorithm love you'll get.

At Mayday, we've been quite successful finding new users by simply engaging with people who tweet about things related to the business. We're using Zapier to search Twitter for certain keywords/phrases, and sending them to Slack... we then engage with people promptly after they've tweeted something relevant.

It obviously requires effort to engage, but it's well worth it.

Agreed, the effort is definitely worth it. Thanks for the advice, I'll definitely be using it!

Maybe worth using a hashtag. I use Twitter as a brain dump.

True words . As you said, engaging with each other on a public platform like twitter helps grow the following in an organic fashion as well. But these efforts sure give an initial boost to people like me :) https://twitter.com/ranuzzzz
