10 Tips for Success on Twitter (1)

Ever wondered why you are not benefiting from Twitter as others are? Ever wondered where you have been going wrong? If so, this is the right post for you! Today we will be giving you 5 tips for success on Twitter that are easy to apply and have proven to be effective with many throughout their Twitter usage (and mine as well):

1. Repeat Your Tweets:

Many tweeps fear that repeating tweets every now and then could get them unfollowed in the long run. However, and from personal experience, I can assure you otherwise and that it is alright to repeat tweets every now and then in order to make sure that your Twitter friends end up seeing them (especially since many Twitter streams might be flooded with tweets and might simply miss yours).

2. Stay Upbeat & Positive:

Although you might not want to believe this, but no one likes drama, badmouthing or plain negativity. This doesn’t mean that you should be something you are not but with every tweet you have a choice. Be positive or stay away.

3. Test Your Tweet Times:

Tweets must always be planned based on where you are and what your time zone is. Therefore, it is important to test your tweet times. This can be achieved  using multiple bit.ly or ow.ly short URLs and via testing tweeting at different times of day. Give yourself the best chance of being RT’d by influential followers by knowing when they are likely to be on Twitter. Continue reading »

5 Ways to Avoid Being Filtered From Twitter Search

Twitter search is very important. If you do use it, you probably noticed that not all tweets show up in your search. The reason for this is that Twitter filters out certain tweets from Twitter search.

Your tweets not showing up in the search results is not a good thing, especially if you are using Twitter for business. Being filtered out is not good for your social presence either.

Therefore, today we will present you with 5 ways to avoid being filtered from Twitter search:

  1. Don’t spam: We all know by now that spam could devastate your presence on Twitter, so please don’t do it!
  2. Don’t post duplicate tweets: If you want to promote your website, blog, product, etc, better do it over a couple of hours. It’s very annoying to see your service or blog linked five times in a row. Continue reading »

10 Advanced Twitter Tips & Tricks

Advanced Twitter Tips

As a part of our mission, we aim to make use of our tweeting experience by bringing you tips that may help you get more attention, engagement, clicks, replies, and new followers.

Therefore, we invite you to enjoy this great list of 10 advanced Twitter tips and tricks:

1. Search for Yourself: Twitter has an API call limit of 150 calls an hour. Every time your Twitter client searches for replies, DMs, or tweets, it wastes a call. Use a search for your own name instead of a replies column in your Twitter client, thus saving APIs and getting the same result! (The only downside is that people with protected updates won’t show up).

2. Use Friendfeed: Friendfeed is a very good resource for searching for old tweets. Twitter Search only goes back a few weeks, but Friendfeed allows you to find any old tweet.

3. Use Groups: Even when you are following a large number of tweeps, you really pay close attention to only a sum of their tweets. By creating groups in your Twitter client, you have a column with those tweets that really count!

4. Don’t Use & in Your Twitter Profile: For some reason, the “&” symbol doesn’t get along well with Twitter and won’t be displayed properly.

5. 125 is the new 140: Although you can now tweet more than 140 characters, the whole purpose of Twitter is the short messages. Shorten your tweets to 125 (or shorter if you can) to encourage easy retweets and added comments. Continue reading »
