Twitter is showing us what it's really good at

Twitter is arguably still the fastest social media channel. Here are my key takes:
  • Twitter is a major source of announcement and information, regardless of whatever global event is happening.
  • Twitter provides real-time updates, and users can sort tweets in reverse chronological order, giving them the latest tweets on their news feeds.
  • Twitter, however, is still struggling to carve out a niche to attract and retain users.

Chime in.

    It is true, what happens fundamentally is that twitter is a simpler and more organized network and currently people like something with more movement, well that is my opinion.

    I think Twitter is the fastest way for reaching out globally. Have you guys lately seen "Nat'l Cowboy Museum - @ncwhm" since Mid-March? It is one of the finest examples of good content and story telling will get you good results.

    Well there are many ways you can use Twitter that most people don't usually do

    - You can create "Lists" that are either public or private so you can organize people by niche. You don't even need to follow them. I have numerous lists which are helpful on a marketing standpoint as well as for non-business interests. You can engage and get exposure.

    - You can use advanced search to find out who is tweeting what you are targeting in on. This could be hashtags, marketers who promote certain companies (identify with URL link they tweet, etc.) . You can even search by dates they tweeted like March 1st, 2019 to June 15th, 2019. I've found this helpful targeting marketers from companies that closed or suffering declining sales... these marketers incomes likely took a hit so I'll give them a follow.

    - You can connect with "active" users who are liking/retweeting or commenting on tweets in your niche. This can by replying or following them

    - You can keep track of how well your tweets are performing using the Tweet Analytics on your individual tweets which shows impressions, engagements, detail expands, retweets, likes, profile clicks, link clicks, replies & hashtag clicks. Further analytics on all your tweets month by month plus other data is at https://analytics.twitter.com/

    - You can schedule tweets for better productivity using tools like Hootsute with free (or paid) options or use https://ads.twitter.com/tweets_manager/d012x/tweets to do it free (not promoted) on Twitter itself. You also now can use Tweetdeck to do that which appears even easier to do compared to the ads tweet manager - see https://help.twitter.com/en/search?q=scheduling+tweets

    - you can use hashtags in your tweets that relate to to the content of your tweet to hopefully get further engagement/impressions from others that search hashtags. Use 1 or sometimes 2 hashtags but no more. www.Hashtagify.me is great tool for finding similar hashtags to use (Experiment!)

    - You can directly ad a URL link in your profile description "bio" which will be clickable when people see your profile in likes, retweets, follower/following lists as well when you tweet out or comment on something and they hover their mouse/pointer over your profile image. (Get free traffic). Sure you also can add a URL beneath your bio as well which you should do but I know (based on tracking) I get leads from the one inside my bio.

    - You can pin a tweet to be at the top of your feed when someone visits your profile... use it wisely.

    - you can use Twitter polls to engage with your followers

    - you can use images/videos in your tweets for extra impact. I actually have found that tweeting quotes "not on an image" gets more more engagement/expressions than on one which seems opposite of what we are told. However - I'm considering using memes business-wise as well as image only marketing tweets. Video apparently outperforms images which I believe is the case & plan on doing that in the future

    - you can use direct messages to interact with people who engage you in a tweet requesting further information if you can't do it in a limited character tweet. I get people asking me questions via direct message. DM spam is still an issue but it is a fraction of what it used to be.

    I do believe it is accurate to say that Twitter has struggled to attract & retain users. I've been on Twitter since 2009 & doubt if 80%-90%+ of my followers have logged in for the last 6 months but could be wrong.

      You can even become micro influencer on twitter and make money by promoting affiliate products.

    I recommend reading 'Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook' by Gary Vaynerchuk if you haven't already. It has a great section on how to effectively use Twitter and is wonderfully illustrated with screenshots of good, bad, and ugly examples of Twitter posts and detailed explanations of why. My recommendation is to get the hardcover edition and keep it as a reference when done reading.

  • Twitter is social media platform where large number of user engage through tweets and retweets. We know that it is great for socializing and a single tweet is broadcast to all the followers easily and it is also useful to we can aware with current situations that are going on in country. we use hastag campaign on twitter, and what is exactly hastag mean and use? It is marketing initiative that is use to gain social media attention create engagement and traffic to a specific topic and idea. We can start campaign against unacceptable things and activities on this platform.
