41 Ways to Become Twitter Savvy

Twitter has become the world’s social media giant – agree or not? It’s evidenced by hundreds of millions of daily users. However, in the early days and even today there are a large amount of users who are not skilled enough to use Twitter. Is it hard? No, it is not. It is just that some people do not want to read basic Twitter guidelines and they spend hundreds of hours on Facebook instead.

 

Twitter is all about communicating. As Steven Hughes wrote in his blog, “Twitter is a different animal.  Twitter is a grind.” You are required to use various tools to enhance your overall Twitter experience. Twitter is used in different ways, from different locations, in a specific time. So it’s impossible to visit Twitter.com every time to post something you want to share.

    Thank U for including my post Annetta :)

    You put together a great resource covering everything you need to do.

    People think success on Twitter comes easy, and in reality it takes work. and real success on Twitter isn’t just getting more tweets.. tweets without real traffic to your blog or website is a waste.

    Relationships and tweets and traffic is what it is all about.

    • Thank you John for the comment. I can see from your daily Tweets that how much engagement you are having with your followers. I would say making relationships and engagement are more important and traffic is just a bonus.

    I am not really into Twitter. But this year, one of my goals is to be more active in Twitter both for business and personal purposes.

    Hi Annetta,

    Thanks for this detailed post. I’ve recently switched PC’s and totally forgot to install the Buffer plugin for Mozilla.

    I also use TweetDeck a lot, mostly for hashtag searches and mentions.

    And Triberr is great. I’ve noticed a huge increase in traffic from Twitter since I started using Triberr.

    Wanted to ask you, what do you think of using TweetAdder to get more followers? Have you had any experience with this tool?

    Have a great day Annetta, cheers.

    ~Philip
