Weird I don't remember needing to do this at all. Must be new.
On Twitter, 100,000 followers is a magical turning point at which an account like ATS (with 65k followers now) goes from important to relevant. When that happens, our tweets, favorites, and links become higher-value in Twitter searches. So for just random Twitter searches on something like 9/11 Pentagon, with 100k followers, our tweet will most-likely appear near the top. Additionally, at 100k followers, the ATS Twitter feeds appears more often in suggested feeds when people are looking for new sources of information to follow. But must importantly, 35k new followers will be a big deal. While our current status with 65k followers is quite good, those have been cultivated over a period of years. A good percentage of our existing total followers are likely not active on Twitter.
Looks like they did not get 100k .
