Twitter Marketing - Plain Tweets

Attracting followers is harder than following on Twitter. The best place to start, however, is by jumping in the conversation. Those who Tweet more have more followers. But not just because of the sheer number of Tweets they send – but the content quality matters.

Content Quality Matters Tweets they Send

Sending a Tweet from Twitter

As found on, to send a basic Tweet, follow the given steps −

  • Sign in to your Twitter account.

  • Type your Tweet into the textbox at the top of your Home timeline. Optionally, click on Tweet button in the top navigation bar.

Make sure your update is fewer than 140 characters. Twitter counts them for you. Remaining characters are shown as a number below the textbox.

Click on Tweet button to post the Tweet to your profile. You will immediately see your Tweet in the timeline on your homepage.

Deleting a Tweet

Make a mistake? Twitter can help you delete a Tweet you sent −

  • Sign in to your Twitter account.

  • Visit your Profile page.

  • Locate the Tweet you want to delete.

  • Click the More icon (•••).

  • Click Delete Tweet.

Done! Your Tweet has been deleted.

Note − You cannot delete a Tweet sent by an account that you do not own.

A few vital points as you start−

  • If you receive a Tweet, reply back.

  • Keep in mind what your twitter feed looks like. Just like any other social media channel, you want to make sure that what you are sharing en-suite reflects your marketing needs and strategy.

  • If you are sharing a content from another source, be sure to include the twitter handle of the content owner. Not only will they appreciate knowing that you shared their content, they might even thank you for it and follow you back!

  • Leave room for extra characters. Sure, you have 140 characters to use, but you might want to spare a few. Leaving extra characters at the end of your Tweet will enable others to retweet your content without having to edit it.

  • Be mindful of hashtags. They help search, but using too many hashtags can also be seen as spam.
