Twitter is Powerful
Twitter Power Users are the cream of the search engine optimization crop. When you have many active and hungry Twitter followers you can quickly and easily become a Twitter power user. Everyone who is anyone online is familiar with Twitter, and more than likely is active on the site itself. Tweeting is the current IT thing to do, along with Pinterest. Movie stars, Tv personalities, models and supermodels, somebodies and nobodies alike all use Twitter to gain interest in whatever their chosen online niche is or could be. When you first start your Twititer account you are nowhere near considered a Twitter power user. In fact your profile isn't worth much at all. But with a concentrated approach and some patience you can slowly, step by step, reach virtually any level of Twitter power user that you wish. Of course, you may never quite get to Lady Gaga level, but fortunately, with Twitter being such a popular entity in and of itself, you do not need to have millions and millions of Twitter followers to be considered a Twitter power user. Several thousand Twitter followers will do just fine for most people.
Twitter Power Users
An always important way to eventually become a Twitter power user is to start small, but think big. Have a vision of where you would like your Twitter profile to be eventually. Dream big, and work hard and the results are virtually guaranteed. It is very important as well to search. Search the web yourself and see what is popular. Google's keyword tool is also helpful to see what is popular on the web and what is not. If people do not search Google for something, then odds are pretty good that they are not searching for it on Twitter either! It is probably adviseable when you are first starting out not to target niches or terms that are too highly searched as these are going to be targeted by many, many others. Although if it is your long-term strategy to rank for more popular keywords then I would absolutely say go for it. Remember it takes time to develop a following and even more time to become a Twitter power user. When I say time I mean months or even years, not days or weeks.
Power Twitter Users
It is fairly well known that growing into becoming a Twitter power user, and growing a web site and increasing its rank in the search engines, would use a very similar approach. First, as I said you would want to identify the terms and keywords that you want to rank for. Second you would develop content built around those specific keywords. Most would tell you that it is then time to start building links, or Twitter followers, but I am not going to do that. I am a firm believer in that often repeated saying "content is king'. So my advice, especially to those who are just starting out is to decide what keywords that you want to rank for, then work on developing content, and then repeat several more times. There is virtually no long term gain in backlinks and/or Twitter followers if you have no content to back it up. Now, once you have the content, and lots of it, it is officially time to build as many backlinks and followers that you possibly can. If you follow these steps and you do it well, then becoming a Twitter power user is definitely in your future. Just remember not to get discouraged if it doesn't happen as quickly as you would like. It is a process, but once done the results and the dividends that it will pay are amazing, and so worth the effort!
