How to get Twitter followers

How to get Twitter followers is the issue that most people are facing. See some people or sites that have thousands of followers, and they can not find even a few hundred. This is because these people or sites are brands, and you're not. Or they just buy thousands of followers, it's the worst thing you can do. Because these followers are not targeted and not have some great use out of them, plus most of them will unfollow for several days. I'll explain techniques that I use to find targeted Twitter followers.

1) Make up your profile

The first thing you need to do is to make some cosmetic changes to your profile

You have to use your name and not your website name or something, because your website is not a brand, but on the other hand people are much easier to decide to follow other people rather than websites. 

You have to use your image as profile picture and not a logo or other image no matter how interesting that picture is.

You need to change the background of your profile and your profile header. Find two interesting pictures related to your niche and set them as background of your profile, and a header of your profile.

2) Follow other people

This is the oldest Twitter technique, start to following others and others will follow you. I do not want to follow anyone, because most people are not active or do not share with their friends, or they are not interested. You need to find targeted followers that are active, interested and share interesting things with their followers. I explained this technique in the video at the beginning of the post.

3)  Post pictures

On Twitter apply the same rule as for Facebook, people just like to share an interesting picture with their friends. Find interesting images related to your niche, accompanied with some interesting text, and share it with your followers and they will share with their followers. I explained this technique in the video at the beginning of the post.

4) Replay to other people's tweets

Find people in your niche who have thousands of followers and who are very active, start to follow them and see when they make the most tweets. Be among the first to see the tweet and replay on him with some related interesting picture or video accompanied by interesting text. In this way, many people will retweet your replay to their followers. 

These are techniques that I use, I hope it will help. If you have any suggestions or your technique please leave a comment.

Chinese are the largest consumers of luxury goods

The Chinese are the largest consumers of goods in the world luxury front of Americans, accounting for 25 percent. The Chinese bought luxury goods worth 53 billion euros.

The Chinese are the largest consumers of goods in the world luxury front of Americans, accounting for 25 percent of total world consumption of luxury goods.

The Chinese in 2012 .
luxury bought goods worth 53 billion euros, while the market these goods in total revenues this year of 212 billion euros.

The Chinese
luxury two-thirds, or 63 percent of goods in 2012. continental bought out part of their homeland, and the other in Taiwan and Hong Kong and Macao, and the percentage continues to grow, according to a report by "Ben and company."

That percentage was in 2009. was 56 percent in 2010. the figure rose to 59 percent in 2011. to 60 percent.
At the same time, in the continental part of the People's Republic of China's consumption of luxury goods this year increased by only seven percent.
This trend is partly explained primarily growth in the number of tourists from the People's Republic of China throughout the world.
So the French 2009th visited by 600,000 citizens of the People's Republic of China, and the 2011th even 1.1 million.
"We should not forget that the reason for buying Chinese citizens abroad and additional taxation of luxury goods in China, where the price is 30 to 40 percent. Because Chinese people are waiting to go to Europe and buy the lower cost of luxury goods," the director said, "Ben and the company, "Joel de Montgolfije.
China market 2012th sold luxury goods worth 23 billion euros, well below the 59 billion euros earned in the territory of the United States.
Consumption of luxury goods in Japan this year amounted to 19.7 billion euros, 18.2 billion, Italy, France 15.1 billion.
"A taste of Chinese customers are becoming more refined, so that 65 luxury consumer goods from Beijing and Shanghai shows a tendency of buying products with less prominent markings brands," said Director of De Mongolfije.
Chinese women are increasingly seeking cosmetic products, while their compatriots shows highest affinity for clocks, carried the Canadian broadcasters.
The research firm Boston Consulting Group (BCG) recently showed that in the People's Republic of China, 20 percent of the population by 2020. be wealthy enough to be able to be called "rich".
It is believed that up to 280 million people, then do the wealthy class in the People's Republic of China, and their purchasing power will amount to 3.1 billion dollars a year, or five percent of global consumption, said BCG.
BCG ranks as the rich people whose annual disposable income per household is 20,000 to one million dollars.
Initial figure of $ 20,000, adjusted to take into account differences in purchasing power, equal to the annual disposable income of $ 38,000 in the most developed markets.
By 2020, the consumption of the "rich" in the People's Republic of China will be almost equal to Japan's total consumption in a given year, 128 percent higher than in Germany and three times higher than in the South Korean consumer, said BCG.

Average total domestic product (GDP) per capita in the People's Republic of China in 2011. reached 5432 U.S. dollars, far more than 1135 U.S. dollars in 2002.

This is how airplanes will look like in future

The future of commercial air looks quite different in the eyes of innovative aero-engineers and designers who have introduced new types of aircraft, in an effort to make them faster, more efficient and environmentally friendly.

Delta Force

Corporation "Northrop Grumman" created this "flying wing" on which engines will be built on the upper surface of the aircraft, in order to mitigate the more noise they produce.


One of the proposed models created in collaboration NASA and Boeing should look like, and its advantages are lower fuel consumption, reduced pollution and noise. 


N3-X, NASA's latest "child", is one of the hybrid aircraft, and the air is lifted over the surface, causing his wings less than the "fat" body. In this way, reduce fuel consumption, as well as the length of the runway for takeoff. 

Double Double 

Another model with wider fuselage MIT D8 has only one flaw that will appeal to travelers, and this has reduced the number of windows in relation to the number of seats, which can create a sense of claustrophobia.

Dual Boom  

NASA has developed a model of "Amelia" aircraft as a hybrid, which looks like the wings of the aircraft to "grow up" directly from the trunk, which should provide a more comfortable flying at higher altitudes.

In the box

Wing-shaped diamond boxes, such as the model of "Lockheed Martin" and NASA, are now feasible in practice due to the ultra light fibers that are reinforced composite materials.

Lift me up

Boeing Model "Sugar Volt" is characterized by its long wings, but he is the most radical feature that features a hybrid electric motor.

Shock test    

"Airbus Walter" brings a whole new dimension to electric motors, with their propellers are powered solely by batteries.  


Back supersonic flight can be accomplished by using the aero-dynamic shape craft.

In both directions

The supersonic jet in the form of suriken could be flying in both directions, and the rotation of 90 degrees exceeds the supersonic in supersonic flight mode.

Threatens us, the world's water shortage

The global crisis has affected water. Climate change, which many scientists blame the irresponsible behavior of the great powers, the world's highest transmitter exhaust gases that cause the greenhouse effect, caused by parallel - drought and massive floods.

Although, as seen from space, two-thirds of our planet is covered with water, the view from the ground reveals a completely different picture. Only two and a half percent of that water is usable for drinking.

- Photo of dead cows in the wilderness that evokes any reference to the global water crisis, for many people it is a reality. But in this crisis there are many more dimensions - said Professor Jeff Debelko, an expert in ecology from the University of Ohio.

Because high water flooding, or sea level increase due to devastating storm, it is equally deadly as the "classic" thirst for want of drinking water. Global population growth to a billion by 2025. The only will provide experts to complicate things.

Not only will it increase the population, but their habitats will be moved to the cities, and it is anticipated that by 2050. as much as two-thirds of humanity to live in them. This means that water needs, but critical in arid regions of the world, in addition to the increase. The consequences are numerous, from the food to the industry.
Some richer countries, such as China, Saudi Arabia and South Korea, therefore, of interest already occupied land in developing countries. According to the forecasts of the Group for Water Resources, 2030. The water demand could exceed "bid" for as much as 40 percent.
Accelerated water consumption has been recorded in North Africa, the Middle East and Asia. According to data from the UN Food and Agriculture Organization in less than 40 years, one in five developing countries will not have enough water.
Symptomatic example of India, where the satellite photos of the north, they found a worrying degree of soil drying due to large-scale irrigation. Ground water is reduced by as much as 30 centimeters a year, threatening crisis in the supply of the precious liquid for about 115 million people. According to UN data, the use of groundwater to total tripled in the last 50 years. In China and India, and the water is consumed faster than they can be renewed.
The result is that half of the global population lives in countries where there are serious problems with water supply. This trend is further accelerated due to the cutting of forests, land drainage, poor maintenance of water infrastructure in cities.
Climate change is a "trigger" for both water shortages, and floods. First they best illustrate the drought in some parts of the world, including Serbia. The heat in the U.S. and Europe, for which Panel on Climate Change, says it will only increase next year, but it caused a chain reaction of consequences, most notably a jump in food prices. The targets are the poorest who spend more than half of income on food. The same cause, on the other hand, products in other parts of the world the opposite effect - mass floods:

- We always knew that the hurricane as a "send" can come to New York. But it is happening now with the elevated level of the sea, which continues to rise - notes drought specialist at Columbia University in New York Richard Seager.

By mid-century, annual runoff of water in some tropical regions will be increased to 20 to 40 percent, and will reduce by 10 to 30 percent in some areas, but dry, predicts Panel on Climate Change. That could hit many waterless areas of the Mediterranean, through parts of the United States, southern Africa, northeastern Brazil, to Australia.

More than a sixth of the world's population relies on water from melting glaciers. But because of climate change, predicts the U.S. National Intelligence Council, this immigration will be reduced and does cause problems with water supply.

Overall, the OECD predicts that by 2030. Almost half the world's population to live under stress due to water, each of thirst, another flood. The risks of drought and excessive water overflow to the end of the century will be increased.

Greatly affected the urban areas of the developing world, but the weather woes could be developed to such an extent that harm the well-controlled structure as now, generally, does the United States. National Intelligence Council, moreover, predicts that the whole country could find themselves in trouble because of the water, when people are dissatisfied with the government's wrath poured out.

If problems are not solved in time, it is anticipated that the supply of water to be complicated, and the risks of disease, energy woes, will open conflict inevitable.

Future Economy: China before America

Futuristic analyzes indicate that the economic situation in the coming decades will be very different, with much higher consumption of food and energy and the increase in population by 30 percent.

All consequences of drought, climate change, irrational exploitation of natural resources - Perpendicular to the ground in less than half a century, according to the predictions of the experts. A study by the London "Šroder investment" states that in the next forty years the population increased by 30 percent, and food and energy will become a benefit.

Another study banking company "Citigroup" predicts economic turbulence in the pedestal. China will surpass the U.S. gross domestic product, a higher GDP than Russia will - India.

The country's population, according to estimates, "Shroder Investment", in 2050. increase by one-third, and consumption will be much higher. Those who daily consume 10 to $ 100 will be three billion more.

- Therefore, the scope of the global economy will be tripled, while increasing demand for food, housing, cars - this according to a U.S. study. - To meet the needs will require 35 percent more food and 37 percent more energy.

Both analyzes show the futuristic new economic power - China. "Shroder investment" says that this country the 2060th have a share in the world economy by 28 percent and become the leading economy in the world. Banking firm "Citigroup" China earlier releases in the foreground.

- China will 2025th by the nominal gross domestic product of U.S. threatened - say experts in this business. - In the third place will be ahead of Russia, across India. Brazil, which currently occupies the seventh position, but next year will overtake France and Britain, and India will succeed 2015th year.

According to analyzes of U.S. bank economists, India will have a higher GDP than Germany 2020th when Russia will already exceed France, Canada and the UK.


Governments of developed countries should, according to the "Citigroup" to adopt fiscal policies that will encourage the construction of residential areas, using public transportation, and moderate consumption of food.

- A new economic model requires a more responsible environmental policy based on the controlled use of limited resources - researchers say. - Reforms in the area of ​​energy can increase the living standards of the country's population by 16 percent over the next 50 years.
