Startup Challenge: 36 hours to 100 on Twitter 

At YVR Startups we believe in taking actionable steps and getting results. And if you want to get something out of this, we challenge you to take on the twitter challenge. Go on twitter (or create an account) and start tweeting in your niche, follow influencers and be present there. You don’t need to spend hours on it, just a few minutes throughout the day. We did that a few days ago and check out what we got from a day of hustling:

We simply started an account, started interacting with local relevant startup folks, joining hashtags, following startup leaders and joining in on their conversations, being resourceful at all times and within 36 hours we got a little over 100 followers. We did this experiment to show you that it’s not that difficult to grow a twitter account and you just need to take some initiatives and you can start getting results.
