This article will help you increase your chance of getting followed back by a celebrity (or any other celebrity) on Twitter.

2. Follow them on Twitter by searching for their handle
You can find the Twitter handle of the celebrity. You can search for the celebrity on Google by clicking “Search Tools”, or simply enter their name into the Twitter search bar.

3. If they ask to be followed back by you, do not at them. This could seem spammy.
Follow celebrities easily on Twitter. You just need to click on the Follow button at their profile page. When adding celebrities to your list, you can choose another option than “Follow back” if they don’t wish followers. You should not follow them on Twitter unless you ask or they are asking for fans interaction via #askmeanything, which could seem spamming.
What does it mean to unfollow someone? You can unfollow a celebrity by clicking the “unfollow button” in Settings. You will no longer receive notifications from that celebrity and they won’t be posting any posts.
4. Send a tweet to the celeb with your message explaining why you wish to follow them, or what their meaning to you
You can include a link or create your tweet to mention the celebrity on Twitter.
Show them photos of your work, and tell how they have influenced you. If you can show them how they have influenced your lives, they will be more inclined to do the same.
You can use words to grab attention if they do not seem interested in connecting with their fans. “One popped up close to my office, so I wanted share the interesting items caught my attention.” This directs their concern and makes it clear why they should follow your tweet.
Respect When asking for follow-up, and don’t spam celebrities with messages. They will most likely ignore you.
5. Send them a screen grab of your tweet and include some text or emojis

Your full message should appear in the screenshot. You can’t fit more than one tweet in one screenshot. Instead, share the screenshots as a series. You could also snap a photo of you holding an index card with your message.
6. Follow this account and save some of their tweets as favorites
Follow their Twitter , like their Facebook page and make sure to Like them. This will allow you to interact with their timelines and possibly get a follow back.
Finding someone with the same interests is your first step to getting a celebrity following you on Twitter. You might know them for their acting, music or cooking. We’ll be using Beyonce as an example.
Follow her tweets, and then favorite some posts to see her interactions and possibly start following you back. You can also tweet any updates she posts, including old and new content like ‘Throwback Thursday’. They’ll be able to see how much support there is from everyone , which may make it more likely that they follow you back. Celebrities often like to have conversations with their followers.
To follow Beyonce’s profile, first find it and click on the “Follow” button beneath. She will then be notified that you are interested in following her back.
7. You might have something in common.
You have just taken the first step towards finding a celebrity who will follow your Twitter account. It doesn’t matter if you can’t relate to someone. It is important to find someone with similar interests, and who has had the same experiences.
Start by looking for their name and past tweets. Sometimes, they will include information about their hobbies and interests outside of work. You can then think about something they have tweet before, and include it in the request tweet. (e.g. “I like cooking too!”).
You can browse photos that have been tagged #___ to see what celebrities are sharing. There might be some things that you share in common, which could lead to your first tweet campaign.
8. Keep trying, but don’t be aggressive. If they do not respond within a few days, you can wait to try again.
It’s a great way to not come across as desperate, but still show how much you care by showing patience and working hard to get what you want. People like to be followed up on politely by others, even when it takes them a while.
If they do not answer, please be polite. There’s always someone out there that will take your offer! Remember that people may not follow you for a reasonable time, such as a couple of days. This could be because they have lost interest or are busy. Some people prefer to have more followers than they follow themselves, so they will ignore any requests.
You have a better chance of getting a response if the person you’re trying to reach is someone who tweets frequently. It might take them longer to see your tweet if they don’t update as often, or even at all. You have a better chance of them responding and noticing your message if they’re more well-known online.
9. Retry again
Try tweeting again if all fails. Wait a couple of days to check if there are any changes. But don’t quit too soon. It can take a while before someone sees you tweet and begins following you back.

This often boils down to a lack of understanding of Twitter as a social channel and an inability or unwillingness to invest the time to learn. But the secret to success is simple: put yourself in your followers’ shoes and consider what you’re adding to their lives.06-Jul-2010
