See, here's a prime example of what doesn't work with twitter. People are not going to just "follow" you for no reason. They might, but then they'll just unfollow you after you automatically follow them in return. Remember people are selfish by nature.My twitter is "whatever" Follow me and I will follow you back.
You have to offer something of value! "Follow me and I'll give you weekly announcements to where you can get front row seats for your favorite concert in Denver Colorado every week!" would be a reason to follow someone.
WHY should someone follow you? What do you have to offer? If you plan on sending people to article links (saw in another reply on this post), what's your focus? Why should they follow you to get those announcements?
