Since I started tweeting in 2009, I’ve been asking questions like this to spark conversations with my followers.

It just makes the conversation more personal & fun.

And it gets a big response.

Sure, I still tweet news & tips that provide value for my followers. But questions are what keeps them engaged -- along with the fact that I reach out to people from all walks of life.

And I encourage them to reach out to me!

How do I do it?

How do I come up with questions to ask my Twitter followers?

Do this until you find an great idea (just click "See More").
