I’m really loving the 280-character-longer tweets! It’s about time! Twitter users have been asking for this since its conception 11 years ago.
And because of President Trump’s love for tweeting at all hours, Twitter usage had grown tremendously in 2017.
So how can you use Twitter’s longer tweets to promote your business?
- By quoting other people’s tweets and adding your own comments, hashtags, even a link to your own website. Now, instead of a countdown, you see a circle. As you get close to the 280 character count, it’ll change color and tell you exactly how much space you have left. 2. Put full quotes and excerpts. Not all sharing tools have caught up to the 280-characters yet, but they’re getting there. This is what the longer tweet looks like: 3. Thank more people at once. Especially if you’re just started on Twitter. Your objective is to build a following and get noticed by your target market and influencers (people who have a lot of followers). Now you can thank a whole bunch, add a hashtag, call-to-action and link. I like using TweetDeck to do this easily and manage my Twitter account.
