Twitter Tutorial - How to use Twitter Effectively
Twitter allows 280 characters per tweet. What? How am I going to cram all the info in such little space? Yes, that was my first thought when I started out with Twitter. Seven years ago, though, only 140 characters were allowed. Twitter increased it to 280 in 2017.
Fitting in all the info in short spaces takes practice. I can show you some examples of tweets. The KISS principle (Keep It Short and Simple) applies here. Remember to also add some hashtags, you have to cram those in as well.
Another wonderful feature Twitter has is the pinned tweet. If you have a tweet that you would like to feature on your profile and that you want your followers to retweet, simply pin a tweet to your profile.
After writing and posting your tweet, just click on the drop down arrow within your tweet. A menu will appear. Select "pin tweet", and you're done. That particular tweet will be pinned to your profile until you decide to change it.
When a follower comes to your profile and sees your pinned tweet he/she might either check it out and/or retweet it. When I retweet others' tweets, most people will retweet my pinned tweet in return.
So, having a pinned tweet is extremely useful.
