For my final project with my Writing with New Media course I developed a project around the social media platform Twitter. I set out to determine if anyone could apply popular social media strategies to their own personal accounts to gain a large following and engagement with their content. I planned to apply four basic strategies,

  1. Utilize hashtags and key phrases to get my content noticed in the trending feed.
  2. Repost, or retweet, content that is highly regarded to direct traffic to my page.
  3. Use a third party app to enhance my reach on twitter.
  4. Cross post content from other sites.

In doing so I hope to prove or disprove the claims that the strategies were full proof and successful or if it was just luck of the draw in being social media famous.
