My First 56 Days on Twitter

December 29, 2012 — 2 Comments

Follow me on Twitter @insidemyrocket56 days ago I created my first Twitter account. The purpose of my Twitter account is to support this blog ( and to make a name for myself in the world of online marketing. Aiming for 10K daily blog visitors by December 2013 I need to be where the audience is and shout my URL to the moon.

56 days ago I was a total Twitter noob. Since then I’ve been playing around with it quite a bit and it’s eating up way too much of my time. But I’m in love with this fantastic tool.

So far I’ve done 109 tweets, I’m following 537 other users, and 83 are following me. The majority of users following me is just a result of them following me back. How sad is that?

Doing a little math I’m averaging just about 2 tweets a day. That doesn’t seem like much compared to other successful internet marketers who seem to be able to tweet 10, 20, or even 50 times a day. I don’t know how they do it – or if it’s even the right thing to do.

Well – I’ll do a follow up on this one in a month or two. By then I can probably provide you with more insights on how Twitter works as a traffic generator for me.

  1. Great post – I’ve just started on Twitter too really. I set up my account a while back but have only started tweeting regularly in the last 2 weeks. I agree with you – I have no idea how people tweet so many times a day. I’m aiming for one tweet a day at the moment.
    I also have 80 followers but only following 116 at the moment. I read somewhere that you should only follow about 20% more people than your followers so you don’t look like a spammer. This blog post gives you suggestions for getting more followers
    Tim has other ideas on what to tweet too – you should be able to find the links on his site.

      Thanks for the link Tracey. I’ll look into that.

      Wow – then I for sure look like a spammer on Twitter at the moment. Currently my ratio is 943/145. I better attract more followers. Please go to
