Also, just to answer your questions quickly, before getting into the detail i can in an article,
1. be careful how much you tweet at once. If you get annoying, and fill up people's screens, there's a good chance they will unfollow. However, how interesting your tweets are can go a long way here.
2. DO NOT follow people back who don't interest you. I personally feel it's best to be a "Friend" on twitter, rather than a "Collector"...see my article in the link above for details on that. One should really only follow those they find interesting and wish to actually get to know better on the Twitterverse.
