Unfortunately gaining Twitter followers will not build you a successful business. This is a very small part of building a website. I do not believe that gathering up thousands of Twitter followers will mean anything in years to come.For one thing it is just too easy to get followers, as you can even buy them. Things that are too easy like this are never really that great.If you are trying to gather followers, I suggest you get people to sign up for your e-mail list instead. This way you have a much more personal relationship with them.
