1. Basics

  • Twitter allows 140 characters to articulate a message. If you are anticipating a response from followers or clients, consider conserving space in your message so they have room to respond.


2. Purpose of Hashtags

Hashtags (#) help you find relevant topics and events on Twitter.


3. Twitter Language

Re-Tweet (RT): This is when you say what someone else said by “retweeting” their post.

Modified Tweet (MT): People modify tweets so they can add their own comments but this is fading away with additional character limits.

Follow Friday (#FF): Follow Friday is a great way to acknowledge people and gives others influential accounts to follow in your same circle.

Throwback Thursday (#TBT): This is an opportunity to post historical pictures of your business, products, business friends, or other creative ideas having to do with the past.
