Tweeters from all over the world want to learn how to become a better tweeter in Twitter. How will you do this? It’s really not too difficult; basically it boils down to common courtesy – and don’t be a pest.
One of the first things you may wish to learn is how to ‘retweet’. You can definitely improve your standing in Twitter if you re-tweet. When one of your followers posts an appealing article or interesting comment, you can retweet it. If you do this, most of your followers will also do the same. Just imagine all your followers re-tweeting. When they add your user name to their updates, you will be exposed to even more users. But be careful in re-tweeting because you might not be posting interesting or helpful topics – read it before you retweet it. Make sure that you retweet only the good ones. How can you re-tweet? You no longer need to copy the original tweet and write the prefix RT, you just click the retweet at the bottom of the tweet. If you use TweetDeck, just hover your curser over the person’s profile pic and click retweet
Many users use Twitter to post tweets that no one is interested about. Who cares about what you ate for dinner or what you did last night – unless you did so with someone of interest to others. Perhaps your closest friends will appreciate that but what about the rest of the social community? It would be better if you send out informative tweets, no nonsense. By doing so, people will think of you differently. They will know and feel that you care one way or another. If you’re addressing your tweets to one person, try to indicate it so that others will know who you are referring to.
It’s a good idea to send replies often. Talking all day long is possible through Twitter – if that’s what you wish to do. Keep in mind followers like a person who knows how to listen as well as talk. You will probably find yourself laughing at dumb tweets but you must restrain yourself. Twitter is an application that allows people to communicate; so no matter how funny some tweets sound, try to appreciate them and reply courteously-do not attack anyone. Most Twitter users want to be heard on the web and if they find individuals who know how to listen, they are more interested in making friends.
In order to tweet better, you must be proactive. Find some neat articles and helpful info online; when you find one, post it. Some might re-tweet it or you can find other users that are interested in meeting you and becoming Twitter buddies. You don’t need to comment or write something all the time. Try to be careful in using your automatic messages and updates because you don’t want to become a pest to others with uninteresting info. You can also try using hashtags. The keywords are preceded by # a number of users think that hashtags are really hot.
You can use Plixi.com (formerly tweetphoto) or click on the camera icon in TweetDeck to upload pictures. You can upload as many pictures as you wish, but choose your pics wisely. Your pictures can tell a lot about you and or the things that interest you. Through the pics, your followers can get to know you better. According to expert tweeters, pictures can tell a lot about you as compared to the posts you send.
