What works on Twitter

Know what you want to talk about? Let’s look at how you talk about it.

Keep it short and sweet

You’ve got 280 characters, but you don’t need to use them all. Once you’ve figured out something to talk about, keep your Tweet short and to the point. It keeps it memorable and helps people pay attention.

Pro Tip

Tweet often

As you keep Tweets short and focused, make sure you Tweet often to stay in the conversation. Your name will keep appearing in others’ timelines for the potential to get more replies or Retweets of what you share.

Be real

Be yourself when you’re on Twitter. Use your own tone of voice and talk about things that matter to you. Your followers will notice and appreciate you for being you.

Add some flair

You don’t need to rely on only your words to stand out. Try some of our other tools to flavor your Tweets:
