This month marks Twitter’s eighth birthday, with the prolific social media site registering over 230 million active users in its short life.

It’s the site where Ellen Degeneres shared her epic Oscars selfie (which broke records with over 3 million retweets) and Justin Bieber (50 million followers) and Barack Obama (41 million followers) vie to take top spot from Katy Perry, who leads the charge with over 51 million followers.

Twitter’s undeniable staying power and popularity prove that if you’re still not quite on the bandwagon, there’s no time like the present. Here are some failsafe tips for increasing your Twitdom in, fittingly, 140 characters or less.
