As a blogger, twitter is a great way to get your blogs out into the world. Here are some tips for you to grow your twitter following.
Use Hashtags that are relevant to your blog story or your post.

Check it! Go back to your Twitter feed, search the hashtags that you have used yourself.
Follow the leader - find people in your genre and follow them.
Follow the follower - If someone follows you it is etiquette to follow them back. Have a descriptive reply too. Use a Bitly link to direct them to a page on your website or your home page.
