I felt that I added followers in a plethora of ways, which helped me branch out and be followed by a diverse group of people.  I was able to get retweeted by one of my favorite hockey journalists, which added a few hockey fan followers, as well as gaining followers from making friends in class, and also from my viral tweet campaign.  This twitter account (I have a social one as well that I use much more) was relatively new and I had not tweeted often from it, however when I began tweeting on a more regular basis I was able to gain followers.  A few of my tweets included hashtags that also improved my amount of followers slightly.  I probably could have gone out and followed more people to attempt to get a follow back.  This is one thing I wish I had done to improve my follower growth.

This tweet was posted during a class where we learned about a website called Emoji Tracker that included live updates and analytics of the most and least used emojis across the world.  While everyone was interested in which emojis were used most, I played devil’s advocate and tweeted the one that is used least. People found this funny, and it gained some success.

This tweet was posted during our viral campaign, and I felt that after the election was decided, I could make a connection to it somehow.  By using the hashtag ‘Election Night’ I was able to get a lot of impressions and views due to the hashtag’s popularity.

Again, this was during the viral content challenge.  This was the first tweet I put out, and my classmates helped me get some engagements.  Due to those retweets, it spread to other groups of people.  I tried to include a relatable caption for the twitter card, as well.

This tweet was made for a twitter assignment that required us to post a selfie.  Rather than just post a random selfie, I tried to get engagement from a company, so I chose Chipotle and was able to get a favorite as well as a reply from my favorite fast food place.

Here, I used a relevant event to complete a twitter assignment.  I used hashtags to get more engagement and used media to catch the eye of both followers and possibly people who clicked on the hashtag.  I included an emoji as well, to add to the visual aspect of the tweet.

During our Periscope challenge, which was hilarious and extremely fun, we tweeted it out to get more viewers, and to spread some happiness and hopefully generate a few laughs.  This tweet included a hashtag to try to gain more viewers, as well as included Periscope media.

This was drafted as an assignment to tweet a link.  I tried to get replies and engagements by asking a question, however seemed to come up short.  I added a tag of TSN as well as tagging the NHL in a hashtag.

This tweet was an assignment to create a gif and tweet it using Gif Boom. Since this was media, it got a lot of clicks, I think.  I also included the hashtag ‘poker’ to get the tweet out to another group of people.
