    Answer it

    Hey Guys!  I made the twitter account in 2010 while I graduated from college. Back then, Twitter wasn’t that cool, neither hyped nor important so I stuck to FB and Orkut. But now, I’m in an immediate need to get my Twitter channel flourishing with daily posts, traffic and ultimately a huge follower base.


    I want SM wizards, Twitter experts, marketing and advertising guys, to suggest some best hacks to get the desired result. Thank you!

  • I hope the problem lies whether you have connect every social media platform together or not. Most of the times we don't connect our social media platforms which lead to less followers. As I am seeing you have been active and efficient on Facebook and Orkut, so i hope you might be knowing that Facebook doesn't allow anyone to use their contacts to any other social media platforms. Facebook has been strict to this till date and has never change these Guidelines of sharing the contact info no matter how transparent or visible it is. So coming to your problem:

    1. Get a Yahoo! Mail Account (Or Sign in if you already have one)
    2. Import Your Facebook Contacts: Here the thing is a bit trick most of the time we make Facebook account using Gmail Id. So after making your Yahoo Id go to Facebook settings change your primary email id into yahoo id. It will send a notification email into your Yahoo id just confirm that and you will see the Primary is changed.
    3. Now come back to your Yahoo Id and you will see a icon called contacts, as you click that you will be getting many options one of them will be Facebook just click on the IMPORT button beside Facebook. All the contacts will get listed to it.
    4. After you have imported your Facebook with Yahoo download the Contact CSV file.
    5. Now open your Google Id and Click on Gmail , then Click on the contact it will open another window Google Contacts now upload your Contact CSV in it.
    6. Now Go to your Twitter account click on Settings, there is an option Find Friends where you can connect with your Gmail Id. Click on it and Voila!!! You will be having all your Facebook friends connected to Twitter.
