LinkedIn and new Twitter Friends,

I’ve been #3 in the world on LinkedIn, which has over 500 million members.  I started one of the first LinkedIn open networking groups aka LIONs 11 years ago.  Now I’m on Twitter where active followers are just like LIONs (would that make them TONs?).  The more followers you have, the more people you can reach. But Twitter – like LinkedIn – doesn’t make it easy.  So I created LinkedIn Twitter Follow Back (LITFB) to bring LinkedIn open networking to Twitter.  It’s the easiest and most effective way to build your Twitter network.

I have 50,000 LinkedIn contacts that I’ll be bringing here.  I hope you’ll refer your own.  Whether you’re already a Twitter pro or new to the Twitterverse, LITFB will generate many thousands of new Twitter followers for our members.  So do join us.  And yes, it’s free!

Top Questions for Twitter Newcomers
  • What is a ‘follow back’?  A Twitter follow back is just like what it sounds.  I follow you and in return you promise to follow me back.
  • Is this allowed on Twitter?  Yes.  LinkedIn discourages open networking.  Twitter doesn’t.  Follow back is a common, accepted, and fully permissable Twitter practice.
  • You want more business and contacts, don’t you? Since you’re already on LinkedIn, you know the value of having a large network for maximum exposure.  You never know where that next referral or customer is going to come from.  You need to be on the top social networks like Twitter where your partners and prospects are.  If you’re not on Twitter, extend your brand and sign up now.
  • Break through Twitter limits.  Twitter won’t let you add followers under various, sometimes magical, conditions.  Here’s one – you can’t add followers if you’re following 5,000 people and have less than that many followers.  If that happens, how do you magically get more followers?  Get LITFB!  Fellow members will follow you and your restriction will be lifted.
  • Quality followers. LinkedIn Twitter Followback members are excellent followers with real and active accounts.  They’re not fakes that you buy and that later disappear.  They’re professional individuals just like you.
  • Support fellow LinkedIn members. When you follow a LITFB member, you’re also building their network.

Many of our LinkedIn contacts are or want to be involved with for-profit or social startups or small businesses.  If you’re one of them, please read more about how you can help at
