@rich-brooks After following the influencer, take a peak into their follower list. Then select active and relevant accounts to follow. More than likely, these individuals and organizations will follow you back, esp. if you have a solid profile and decent tweet stream.
This method works the best when you are doing it in your chosen field(s) vs. randomly. I followed nonprofits, associations and marketing-related folks. My tweets are in this realm as well (with weather and horses thrown in for good measure). I gained a number of followers by adding people from the SM4NP conference speakers’ follower lists, such as Beth Kanter, Peter Corbett, Katya Andresen, Michael Smith, etc.
Does that help?
