I give the same advice about Twitter that I give to people on SEO for their websites:
If you write in a natural way about topics that directly relate to your target audience, they'll find you. If you write about nerd stuff, make sure you're writing like you're talking to nerds. If you write about political stuff, make sure you're writing like you're talking to political junkies.
I know this seems obvious, but it's a fundamental mistake that a lot of people make (i.e. they try to appeal to a broad range of people, many of which don't give a crap about what you say because the topic doesn't interest them.)
Be natural and address your target audience...it will happen on its own. It won't happen overnight, but it will happen.
