- Alert Your Twitter Followers To heated Blog Debates
Post your blog posts to Twitter – especially when a specific post has generated several remarks. If you alert your Twitter followers to a heated debate on your blog, you will get more traffic to it!
- Ask Your Twitter Followers To Share Their Experiences
Encourage people who follow you on any and all social networks to participate on your blog by asking them to share their experiences. Generally people love to talk about themselves so this is a good way to get them to visit your blog.

Please feel free to comment on your Twitter experiences.
