Twitter is a versatile medium, but because of its condensed format Tweets that are about me, me, me get really old—really fast! Sure we all want to increase our audience and reach more people, but that isn’t the way to accomplish that. The thing you want to be known for on Twitter is relevant content. You want to give those who follow you something worth following.
We need to learn to Tweet in a way that benefits others.
- Let someone else benefit from what you’ve found helpful
- Share about someone else’s success
- Pass along opportunities
Another helpful tool is something I mentioned last week—Lists. This is simply pulling together tweets of one particular subject and allowing others—those who have joined your list—to follow them as well. One list I particularly like is put out by Alton Gansky.
To make up your own list, click on list on your Twitter homepage and follow the directions. It’s very simple—even I can figure it out!
With this we come to the end of our Twitter Tutorial. I’d love to know if this has been helpful. So leave me a comment—
And don’t forget to join the conversation!
