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

Twitter is a fun platform where you could meet friends, share music, videos and stories. However, Twitter could also be a great way to do business!
Therefore, today I will be giving you 10 best ways that you could benefit from Twitter for your business:
- Try to have more than one tweet following up on your business Twitter account. You need continuous interaction with your audience and you don’t want a gap since employees can be busy, be on vacations or even quit!
- When promoting a blog post related to your business, don’t just dump the link on your Twitter followers; explain to them, in a few words, what the post is about or prompt them for a reply at least.
- Follow interesting and active people. If you find tweeps who you think are interesting, follow them and retweet the valuable and interesting things they tweet.
- Share the “human side” of your company. If you’re bothering to tweet, it means you believe social media has value for human connections.
- Commenting on others’ tweets and being active is a great way to build your community. Continue reading

Sometimes it’s hard to find something worth tweeting about, or you might just be overwhelmed. So for those looking for inspiration, they should do the following; select 3-5 “pro Twitter users” and 3-5 “lite or less popular users” so that you can look to them for inspiration or you can just RT or reply to one of their tweets.
The people that you pick would need to:
- Post less than 15 tweets a day
- Have a fairly equal conversations to links ratio
- Talk about topics that you feel passionate about
- The less popular users need to be someone you know or have some relationship to
Put those people in a list and make it a daily habit of checking, interacting and replying to those people. This will not only get you active on Twitter, adding those people whom you have a relationship to will make your experience on Twitter more authentic and real. You can also use Tweepi to filter and choose people to add to this list.
Have you found this tip useful?
Do you like to play hashtag games – like #followfriday or #teamfollowback – or any of the several hashtag tags that require you at their essence to follow people who follow you back after you have tweeted that hashtag?
Then Tweepi will make playing those games and following people a lot easier. Each time you want to play the game, tweet the hashtag of your choice wait a couple of days and then log on to Tweepi and reciprocate all those who followed you.
Makes playing much easier!
Moreover, to send your own customized FF messages and to make the game a lot more fun and personal make sure to check our Follow Friday Helper tool.
