Man, there is a LOT of wasted messages in TwitterLand.
People can posted the dumbest stuff – “Just got a cup of coffee!”, “Can’t believe it’s Monday!” and so on. WHO CARES?!
Then you have the sharks – “I make $2,600 a day on Google adsense – find out how!” – the get-rich-quick guys.
And it seems some people just follow ANYONE in the hopes that those people will follow them back, building their following number.
What I did learn is that you can use target words in your post that people searching on that topic will find. For example, “Come see my great mantle clocks – they make awesome gifts! #wood #handmade #wedding” Not only will your followers see your message, but anyone that searches Twitter on those search terms will find your tweet. Ok, that’s a good thing.
Also found a website URL shortening service that will shorten a url so you can fit it into a Tweet. So, instead of:
I can use:
Not only that, they track the number of clicks on the link – all for free.
-- Have a blessed day!
