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