Twitter have bug, which you can use to increase the number of followers you have. This bug allows you to increase the followers count when ever you are hitting the follow button from another account multiple times.
What you have to do is
Login to another twitter account
Open the twitter handle (where you need to increase the follower count)
Just click the follow button multiple times (follow/Unfollow)
The count will increase

The followers count will be reset to the correct count after few hours. Also when you are unfollowing it is showing the exact followers count.
