Tweet Your Way To Online Prominence Twitter’s simple question: “What are you doing?” has certainly generated a lot of response since its launch. From teenagers, to professionals, celebrities, politicians, corporate bigwigs – you name it, everyone is on Twitter.

Understanding the Twitter Phenomena What is Twitter? It’s another popular social networking and micro blogging service that allows its users to send and read text-based posts or “tweets” of up to 140 characters. Twitter was created by Jack Dorsey back in March 2006 and was officially launched in July of the same year. Since then, the service has gained worldwide popularity and currently has 300 million active users, generating more than 500 million tweets per day as well as handling more than 1.6 billion search queries every single day. Twitter has been described as the “SMS of Internet”.

Understanding the Twitter Phenomena Twitter offers a combination of different forms of communication - text, photos, music, videos - evolving from everyday life experiences to interesting contents, newsworthy events and crisis. Conversations can revolve on hot topics using hashtags and users can post and view updates, follow other users as well as send public replies or private messages to connect and communicate with other users. Over the years, the Twitter ecosystem has grown dramatically, enabling users to search for people, news or subjects.

What Should I Tweet About? • Instead of answering Twitter’s question, “What are you doing?” you can choose to answer the question, “What has caught your attention?” • Aside from a business Twitter account, have other Twitter users in your company. People can quit, take vacations, etc. • When promoting a particular blog post, don’t just dump the link. You can either ask a question or explain what’s coming up next. • Ask questions and encourage your followers to share their opinions. • Follow interesting and popular people. If you come across users who tweets interesting things, check out who he/she follows and follow them as well.

Slide 10

What Should I Tweet About? • Tweet about other people instead of simply focusing on you, your company, your brands or products. Twitter is not for selling and it has a more intrinsic impact on your business. Work on giving a face or personality behind a brand to engage your followers. • When you happen to talk about your company, products or services, make sure it’s useful. You can deliver it in a form of advice, pictures, blog posts that offer insightful content. • Don’t flood timelines and tweet too much. It may easily annoy followers. As a general rule of the thumb, tweet at least 8 times in a day and no more than 15 times.
