    • To build up a list of posts to re post at a future date

    • Having a place to save your posts, when you think of them…if you are not ready to post yet
    www.nofussaccounting.com twitter handle: nofussacctng
  • Simple Solution : Excel I use an excel spreadsheet for saving my posts. You can use the tabs for different topics you wish to post about. This makes it easy to copy and past posts into your twitter manager very easy. Bonus I have created a “character count” to keep your posts with in the 140 twitter limit (or your own Retweet limit) www.nofussaccounting.com twitter handle: nofussacctng
  • Calculate the characters available if you wish to be retweeted (RT)!! For me my character count needs to be at 124 in order someone to be able to RT me with out editing. Always make it easy for people to Pass on your content. You can then save these posts and build a library of content to use. Use Excel tabs to separate topics.
