The 7 Twitter Tips To Know About

  1. Find a hashtag chat and make a point of actually taking part. You never know what you’ll learn or who you can meet.
  2. Follow at least 10 new people every week. When you do, unfollow people who aren’t adding to your online learning and growth. This culling will help you build a truly powerful Twitter stream and Personal Learning Network.
  3. Ask questions. Use Twitter instead of Google to answer your day-to-day questions. Instead of finding an outdated webpage, you may be surprised to get your answer from an expert in the particular topic you’re looking into!
  4. Don’t feel like you’re doomed to the sidelines if you don’t have enough followers or feel like you don’t have anything worthwhile to say. When you do that, you stop any potential benefits before they even happen. Just jump in!
  5. Share photos! If you share a photo right from Twitter.com, you can get the  ‘View summary’ or ‘View image’ button to appear below your Tweet.
  6. Make Twitter a regular part of your daily online  travels. Bookmark it, add the official app, and then build a Twitter List. Great RSS alternative!
  7. Reply to the @mentions you get. Whether you get 1 or 1,000 a day, a little responsiveness goes a very long way. Wouldn’t you love to get an unexpected reply from someone?
