  • 1. 20 top tips & tricks Andy Priestner / @PriestLib
  • 2. Write a meaningful bio and add a good portrait photo to attract followers (ditch the egg)
  • 3. If you only broadcast and never listen, people will start to notice and unfollow you
  • 4. Manage your Twitter experience (and your other social channels) by maintaining them in one place
  • 5. Use the search facility to locate topics that interest you and to discover (and follow) people with similar objectives
  • 6. Use hashtags to group your tweets by content (and search using hashtags too)
  • 7. Tweet useful content – news, blogposts, websites – and offer your own take on their value
  • 8. Don’t be tempted to obtain followers by any quick route, this will not aid your Twitter presence
  • 9. Tweet regularly but not too often, people might think you are addicted rather than engaged
  • 10. Take part in Follow Friday (#FF) to promote good people to follow and to find new ones
  • 11. Set aside time in your schedule to tweet – make it part of your routine in order to keep up the momentum
  • 12. Maintain a balance between how many people you follow and how many follow you
  • 13. Engage in conversations and (good- natured) debate – this is the key to getting value out of Twitter
  • 14. Invest your 140 characters with wit, warmth and character - learn the art of constructing concise but interesting tweets
  • 15. Show personality and humour in your tweets - no one is going to follow a Twitter account that could be run by a robot
  • 16. Retweet other peoples tweets and others will retweet yours in return
  • 17. Favourite tweets that you want to come back to explore when you have more time
  • 18. Tweet at lunchtime and between 4pm and 5pm when Twitter is busiest and they will be seen
  • 19. Set up keyword search alert channels, so that tweets matching your interests are gathered
  • 20. Create lists in order to organise your most valuable followers into areas of interest so you don't miss their tweets
  • 21. Don’t sit there like a potato! You get out of Twitter what you put in - tweet, follow and engage, and you will be rewarded for your efforts
