Using Twitter to get Twitch followers
I wanted to share with you some of the things I do to get Twitch followers using my Twitter account. I will show you my own techniques that I use to grow my Twitter followers and my Twitch followers.
Get it RIGHT! Setup your Twitter bio like a BOSS!
The first thing you need to realise is that most people wont just find you by accident. You need to help people discover your Twitch channel and you need to tell them to follow you!
Visit my Twitter page and read my bio (Hey, send me a follow while you are there!), you will notice I use the website field to promote my YouTube channel and I use my personal bio to tell people that I giveaway CSGO skins and that it happens very often. Also I include a link to my Twitch channel because people are probably to lazy to type it.
Remember not to lie on your bio, If you are not giving away skins don’t pretend you are. Tell them something else which is cool and true about your channel. I am a CSGO streamer and CSGO players love skins, so this works great for me!
Now your Twitter bio is ready and you can generate interest in your Twitter page!
Archie.co auto favorites tweets!
I used to use TwitFox, but that service was recently shut down because it seems that Twitter doesn’t like services that auto favourite or retweet tweets. My theory in life is people get rich by exploiting loop holes while they exist. I don’t know how long Archie.co will be online but right now it generates me between 25 and 50 new Twitter followers every single day.
Archie.co searches Twitter for specific types of tweets which contain specific keywords and then it favourites them for you. This generates an email from Twitter to the user and other types of notification. Then hopefully they will visit your Twitter profile and like your bio, then follow you on Twitch. It’s a numbers game but it works!
You choose the keyword and archie.co does the rest. If you play World of Warcraft perhaps you can make archie.co look for tweets about “WOW” or “MMO Games”. This helps find people that are interested in the type of games you stream.
Unfollowers.me creates an auto-responder!
If they haven’t already followed you on Twitch after reading your bio, you can now send them a private message via Twitter telling them about your Twitch channel. Hopefully now they will follow you on Twitch.
Go to Unfollowers.me and after you login via Twitter visit the “Automate” tab. From here you need to turn on “Welcome DM” messages.
Create a good welcome message, include your Twitch URL and tell them again why to follow you. Here is my welcome message:
Now you are fully automated, archie.co is generating traffic to your page and unfollowers.me is telling people about your Twitch channel. This is how you can use Twitter to get Twitch followers!
The Final Word!
BOOM! You are officially a BOSS! As your Twitter grows you also have the ability to send cool tweets to your followers and continue to reap the rewards of your hard work! Remember people need all the help you can give them when it comes to following you, make it easy, make it worth it and be clever about your automation so your social media can work through the night and create interest in your Twitch channel!
