This is a good thing. Well done team.

Ive got a fairly healthy twitter following (not big, but ok) I found that follow backs & original content are what drives follower count/ RT/ Favs up the most, so have a think about what content you can produce daily. Look at instagram, snapchat, youtube & periscope (if possible) to link with twitter. 

The key thing is that its real time. You gotta be fast paced, consistent, interesting and relevant. 

Final thoughts: please PLEASE do not do clickbait. Its just the worst

Development Team really pulled through to make the SC Twitter page happen, with help from the Moderators. :)

guys twitter shouldn't be used purely as an advert for the forum - that's not how twitter works and its not interesting to passive readers. you need to generate original content - good tweets, starting hashtag trends, memes, Pics, video clips, things like this. you drive people to your site (and increase your follower count) through RTs and Favs because people like your stuff. once you hit critical mass, people will naturally go to your profile page and click on the link, bringing them here.

I would suggest asking around SC for people good at graphic design and video editing, and get them to join the twitter team. their job is to generate fresh, interesting content. just churn it out. 

Secondly, you generate interest by actually interacting with people. there are so many twitter wars going on. scan through the twitterverse and find a topic being debated, lets say for example fadak, and chime in saying "topic discussed in great length here <insert link to SC thread>"

basically, we need to work on how people outside SC see SC. mashaAllah it is a 20 year collection of every thread under the sun. actively search out where on twitter random members are fighting about hot topics, and reply to all the @'s including the link. its a good way to actually use the unique value of SC which no one else has. 

the best way to generate followers on twitter and on SC is to forget thinking SC just needs to tweet and the masses will surge to the site. take a different approach. try and identify twitter users who are obviously very active in debates on twitter - shia and non shia - and try to work on them to bring them here. it will be slower, but way more efficient, and will at least add to the variety of members here. 

just my 2 cents

The last time I checked, you were not following SC twitter. :woot: 

Most people who are already a member of ShiaChat have bookmarked the site. :D It will take time for SC Twitter to get new followers.
