            It can be difficult at best to fit an entire message into the 140 character limit set by Twitter, but with a bit of practice it can be done and done well. There are a few different things to keep in mind when tweeting to be sure that it is a good tweet that will catch the eye and hold the attention of others, and perhaps even be retweeted!

If one wants to convey a longer message or to give details from another website, providing a link can do just that. At times URL shorteners are used and those are not always foolproof, so be sure that the link is functioning when it is posted. Simply posting a link is not enough, one has to make those seeing the link actually click it, so be sure the tweet the link is in is interesting enough to encourage this.

Twitter’s limit of 140 characters doesn’t always leave a lot of room for extra or unnecessary ramblings. If you cannot get your message across in less than 140 characters, go ahead and use them up! If you can get by in less however, doing so can increase the likeliness that your post will be retweeted. When one retweets a post they often like to identify that they are doing so, and add their own signature. These tweets are also limited by to the same 140 characters, so if room is not left for these additions the tweet may get passed over instead of passed on.

Don’t be afraid to fill out your Bio on Twitter. If you do so well you are helping your cause in two ways. Firstly, it’s important to create a bio that will be interesting and cause others to become curious of you. Secondly, stuffing keywords into the Bio section helps attract a well matched group of followers. If you are tweeting about business or professional topics, or if your twitter account is specifically for a business, break up the monotony of business talk. By adding personalized tweets followers will not get bored with the same predictable posts. If the majority of your posts are about business spice things up with something random such as “I just tried some great new coffee! If you’re looking for a good cup of Joe, buy  instagram likes.” Twitter users enjoy having something new and unexpected to read. This is what keeps certain individuals tweets followed and retweeted while others are ignored.

The foremost method in gaining followers on twitter is to have a creative and detailed profile which will attract the attention and curiosity of others. When you first tweet, be sure that the tweets are lively and amusing. Tweets that nobody is interested in will not assist you in gaining followers. If you do not want to share details from your life, you may not get the following you desire. Those who keep up to date on your tweets are following your life much like a soap opera, so do not spare the juicy details. Be sure that everything you post continues to be entertaining. It is not always just a matter of gaining followers, but also keeping them. Some sites offer you opportunities to buy 1000 twitter followers, but if those followers are not interested in the topics, it will do no good, as they will begin to unfollow you. Adding  photos and videos can assist in creating tweets that will keep followers entertained.

Twitter is used as a way to create a network of individuals who all interact with one another. Follow those who follow you, and make comments as often as possible, as individuals get offended when one does not reciprocate in followings and will often stop following individuals who don’t follow them. Much like presidential candidates spend time putting their face in the public eye, you will need to put your name in the public eye as well. The more you comment on various posts by others, the more others will see your online identity. As they become more familiar with you they will be more inclined to begin to follow your posts.

Another great way to add followers is to link other social media networks you are apart of to your twitter account. Add your twitter information to any other site you are a part of and watch as those who are familiar with you there will carry your relationships from those sites over to twitter. Using Hashtags is also very helpful in finding followers. Twitter allows for individuals with similar interests to come together, united over things that they have in common. Hashtags allow your tweets to be linked up with other groups that already exist on Twitter. Adding followers is a great way to increase ones visibility online. The above methods should all be used together to accomplish the highest success rate possible.
