DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

A word of warning

Having a large number of followers on your Twitter account may seem impressive. It is more important to be helpful and become known as a trusted resource rather than treat Twitter as a popularity contest. Pushing too hard could result in the loss of your account. Never buy followers. Other than showing impressive numbers they are typically bot accounts and are of no value.

Follow you, follow me

The easiest way to get more Twitter followers is to follow interesting accounts on a regular basis. If you see someone who is Tweeting information that is interesting to you, follow them. Chances are, they will follow you back. This is known as reciprocation and it is very powerful.

Engage with the community

You can engage with others on Twitter in at least three easy ways. Tweet a thoughtful reply to Tweets that you like. Favorite a Tweet that is of particular interest to you. Retweet and share a Tweet that is valuable to you and may be so to others that follow you. The original Tweeter will see this activity and may follow you back.

Also make sure that they have similar stated interests in their profiles to what you are looking for. After following an account, they still need to manually follow you back, and that is completely up to them. If they do not follow you back after a certain number of days you can use the handy unfollow feature to “flush” those who do not follow you back.
