Twitter 20 tips and tricks

  1. 1. 20 top tips & tricks Andy Priestner / @PriestLib
  2. 2. Write a meaningful bio and add a good portrait photo to attract followers (ditch the egg)
  3. 3. If you only broadcast and never listen, people will start to notice and unfollow you
  4. 4. Manage your Twitter experience (and your other social channels) by maintaining them in one place
  5. 5. Use the search facility to locate topics that interest you and to discover (and follow) people with similar objectives
  6. 6. Use hashtags to group your tweets by content (and search using hashtags too)
  7. 7. Tweet useful content – news, blogposts, websites – and offer your own take on their value
  8. 8. Don’t be tempted to obtain followers by any quick route, this will not aid your Twitter presence
  9. 9. Tweet regularly but not too often, people might think you are addicted rather than engaged
  10. 10. Take part in Follow Friday (#FF) to promote good people to follow and to find new ones
  11. 11. Set aside time in your schedule to tweet – make it part of your routine in order to keep up the momentum
  12. 12. Maintain a balance between how many people you follow and how many follow you
  13. 13. Engage in conversations and (good- natured) debate – this is the key to getting value out of Twitter
  14. 14. Invest your 140 characters with wit, warmth and character - learn the art of constructing concise but interesting tweets
  15. 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. 16. Retweet other peoples tweets and others will retweet yours in return
  17. 17. Favourite tweets that you want to come back to explore when you have more time
  18. 18. Tweet at lunchtime and between 4pm and 5pm when Twitter is busiest and they will be seen
  19. 19. Set up keyword search alert channels, so that tweets matching your interests are gathered
  20. 20. Create lists in order to organise your most valuable followers into areas of interest so you don't miss their tweets
  21. 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
