A quick twitter tip

This is just something that I do, that perhaps might help you out when it comes to using twitter. You can take these ‘optimisations’ too far, but when done well, I think these tips will get your a few more Retweets (RTs) than you are already getting.

4 retweetable tips

  • When tweeting links include authors twitter handles
  • When mentioning brands include their twitter handle
  • When sharing links mention the twitter handle of how you saw it
  • When sharing another tweet add your own commentary on it. Instead of just clicking the RT button, use a quote instead

By taking these steps you are more likely that someone will re-share (what twitter is in the process of renaming retweets to.

Having other people share your tweets is one of the fastest ways to to grow your twitter audience. Of course it goes without saying that you should really only share things that you yourself are actually interested in.
