If you want to be effective, you have to know these Twitter secrets!
We’re starting a new SECRETS Series for you so you can have all the insider tips on how to be the best. Let’s talk Twitter secrets today:
1) Minimize the Clutter:
Engaging with people is the #1 tip for Twitter success but it can be time consuming looking for tweets to favorite and RT right? Consider turning off ReTweets on the accounts you follow who tend to overdo it. Keep in mind you will only see their original tweets after doing this, so this tip is only for users who are RTing stuff you don’t find valuable.
2) Make Your Mentions Public:
Put a period before you tweet at someone so ALL your followers see it on your profile. For example: “.@BelleStrategies your #Twitter secrets are awesome! #socialmedia”. This removes the issue of Twitter only allowing users to see replies when they are following both people in a conversation. More eyes=more engagement!
3) Flush, Flush, Flush:
Back to the efficiency point here…following the right people and not cluttering up your feed helps keep you streamlined. Tweepi is a free tool you can use to flush outdated accounts, people who aren’t following you back, and more. You can also use it for so many other things (if you’re interested in learning more, check out our recent blog on Tweepi here!).
There you have it – three of our favorite Twitter secrets. More insider tips are coming each week as we continue with our SECRET Series.
