Twitter Tutorial - How to use Twitter Effectively
There are different ways to find your following.
1. The simplest way is just scrolling on your twitter timeline and find tweets that you like or are interested in. You can click on the user’s profile and follow him or her. Most people follow back.
2. Then you can also search for hashtags and find people there. For example, if you’re an author, search one of these hashtags: #writers #authors #writerscommunity. If you have a website about dog accessories and you want to connect with likeminded people, use hashtags such as #dogs #dogsoftwitter #pets #doglovers #doglife, and so on.
Regardless of the niche you’re in, you can type in the corresponding hashtag in the search bar.
3. Sometimes there are “lifts”. Those are tweets that lift others up.
Check if there are any lifts. Most of the lifts I have seen are writer’s lifts and bloggers lifts. They encourage you to share links to your website, book(s), blogs, etc, or you can also simply introduce yourself.
Just make sure you are in the right “lift”. For example, don’t promote your website on CBD products in a fantasy/horror writer’s lift. Many people want to engage on Twitter and do not want to see only advertisements in their feed. If you want to share your website, regardless the niche, then I would recommend checking if there is a Blogger’s lift.
