There's no way your fave celeb would follow you, right? Well, Twitter expert Keith Keller reveals how you can land a spot in their follow list.

Find the right target
"You have a better shot at being followed by a celebrity who actually follows their fans," says Keith. "They obviously take an interest in them."
• Leighton Meester? She follows 130 people. Too hard.
• Justin Bieber? He follows over 119,000. Totally doable!

Stand out from the crowd
When trying to get a celebrity’s attention in their feed, you have to make your tweet stand out. "Using keywords is the best way to get their attention," says Keith. "Find out what they’re interested in and what they’re tweeting about."
• Use trending hashtags • Include your own hook • Be consistent (they’ll notice you eventually!)

... but don't be creepy
The worst thing you could do is make your username something stalkerish like @justinbieberismine because chances are, it will just get you the wrong kind of attention. Instead, Keith suggests you use something “catchy and easy for them to remember”.

Find out what’s important to them
"Showing support for something that’s important to them is an almost fail-proof way to get their attention," reveals Keith. "Retweet links they’ve posted, share their videos and help them promote something that they really believe in."
Nothing OTT, just a few flattering words and a compliment, or two!

Make their fans your fans
Need one last shot? Flood their Twitter stream. "Target their Twitter friends by replying to their posts," says Keith. "Aim to write the best ever tweet – something witty that they want to retweet." Your celeb will see that every tweet in their feed is a retweet of yours. You must be someone worth following then, right? Genius.

  • Aria, girl, we gotta talk. Your outfits are almost always ~on point~ you're the kooky one and we applaud that. We didn't say anything that time you wore a skirt made of ties 👔. You were being stalked by A at the time and we've all been guilty of some bad fash choices. BUT now you come out wearing this purple sequined top and we're scared it's a cry for help. And confirmation there is a new A, because someone must have put you up to it.
