Twitter For Beginners: 10 Crown Tips

Are you a newbie on Twitter for expert advice that will make you tweet like a pro in no time? We present our ten tips for beginners that will make you start with the right foot, and you think you are good habits to gain followers, interact with your colleagues and move on Twitter with the authority of an experienced tweeter.

  1. Customize your profile

One of the best tips for beginners is that your profile reflects you as a person. Do not be a generic robot that lurks silently behind the egg that comes as an avatar by default. Be the owner of your own space! Write a good biography, customize your avatar and your header image, and add any additional information that you think is important.

  1. Use lists to segment your TL

Create good habits from the beginning and segment your audience into lists. You may not be following many people at the beginning, but Twitter lists are a resource that is priceless for the most active timelines, so why not start now? Separate professional contacts, new sources, family and friends in different lists to sort your TL and find the information you need more quickly. Do you need to review the latest news of the sector during your morning journey without being distracted by the latest articles? No problem, head straight to your professional list.

  1. Share content you enjoy

Sharing content that makes you a valuable account to follow is an easy way to gain followers. Share content that you enjoy and is relevant to you. For example, if you have created a personal account on Twitter, sharing content that is of interest to you is sure to attract people with similar hobbies and interests. For a corporate account, share relevant content in your field (as long as it is not competitive content) to establish contacts and provide your followers with good reading material.

  1. Use rich content in your tweets

Using multimedia content such as photos, videos, or GIFs (we like GIFs) makes your tweets visually appealing to your followers. Tweets from companies that contain images are 34% more likely to receive a retweet than tweets from brands that have no image. If you are using Twitter with your personal account, social media scientist Dan Zarrella discovered that tweets with images are 94% more likely to be retweeted. The photos can be up to 5MB in size, and animated GIFs up to 3MB, and you can also tag relevant users, which saves space in those precious 140 characters of your tweets.

  1. Program your content

Have much to learn little grasshopper, and one of those involves lessons do not spam in the timelines of people once a day when you have time to log on and check your own TL. Tweeting bursts has some disadvantages, such as:

  • People who do not see your content as it will be lost in their timelines.
  • People who stop following you because they are tired of seeing lots of tweets at the same time.
  • That you are not constant in your use of Twitter.

The best practices for posting on Twitter are to do it gradually and consistently, day by day. This means that you can make a conscious effort to publish progressively, saving your tweets in drafts and checking your timeline every few hours, or you can use a free tool to program your tweets as Buffer or Hootsuite.

  1. Shorten your links

There are lots of free URL shorteners in the market, so take advantage of them. Using a link shortener such as Bitly, not only will you adjust your links to a specific size but you can also track the people who click on your content. As you can see below, here are the statistics of a shortened link with Bitly that we have recently shared.

  1. Participate in the #FF

If you are new to Twitter, it is very likely that you only follow a handful of accounts. Some news, maybe some famous comedians, maybe some expert in the sector or just your friends. Either way, pay attention to the Follow Friday (tagged with the hashtag #FF). If a Twitter user you follow has bothered to make a list of their favourite tweeters, check out their profiles and see if it is worth following. Better yet, if you have a favourite Twitter account, share them! Everyone appreciates some tweeting love.

  1. Join a Twitter chat

Gain knowledge about the sector, about social media marketing and about Twitter quickly by participating in Twitter chats that interest you. Twitter chats are not only a great way to improve your knowledge on the subject in question, but it also brings you, new people, to follow and helps you make contacts effectively.

  1. Don’t overdo it with hashtags

The hashtags are part of the core of Twitter, and should strive to tag your tweets whenever relevant, but not too! All in moderation, okay? Tweets from companies with a hashtag are 69% more likely to be retweeted than those with two hashtags. Composing the perfect tweet is an art: it must be balanced, contain the basic ingredients for a successful tweet (i.e., good spelling and grammar, relevant hashtags, an image when necessary), and be well structured.

  1. Learn the Twitter shortcuts

Extra tip: This trick is very useful not only for beginners, but you would also be surprised at the number of people who do not know that they can access all the Twitter shortcuts simply by pressing the “?” of your keyboard when on the Twitter web. If you want to impress people with your knowledge of Twitter, this post may be exactly what you were looking for.…
