It is important to know the terminology used and familiar with these words.
-Tweet: is a message 140 characters maximum that is sent or received.
-Followers: are the followers users account and that is you appear tweets written
-Following: are the users that follow
-Replies: this refers to the response of the messages that are written

The next question to consider is how to get followers. No doubt this is one of the goals more difficult to achieve.
This is basic having patience and not try to go more quickly than it is and use some techniques such as:
