This week we will be talking about Twitter.
There is no doubt that Twitter is a major social media platform. With over 500 million tweets sent per day and over 6000 tweets per second, there is no wonder why Twitter is a bloggers dream.
Twitter is a powerhouse of knowledge, news, and fun. There is really no better place for a blogger to be than on the Twitter scene. Which is why utilizing Twitter for your blog is such a great idea. You can share as much as you want when you want how you want. you can meet other bloggers, join groups and engage in casual conversations with the world.
Blogging and Twitter really go hand in hand for most which is why I wanted to share with you in this post how to build a Twitter account for your blog and some tips and tricks to help you Improve your current Twitter use.
Decide if you would like to use your own personal Twitter account or if you would like to create a Twitter account that is exclusively for your blog. I already had a personal Twitter account that I used to share posts from the beginning. This is the account I still use. I enjoy using my personal account to share because it links me and my personality to my Twitter a little more.
If you are looking for a more strict brand then perhaps an exclusive blog Twitter account would be best. This has many benefits also, making your twitter account easy to find and your brand clear across all social media platforms.
Twitter is all about being short and sweet, so think about a fun way to get across who you and your blog are and what people can expect to connect with by following you.
Make sure to add that you are a blogger in there and your site link.
As you can see on the image below my Twitter profile is slightly more personal. Unlike my Facebook page my Twitter has my photo as the profile. Decide which way you would like to go with your Twitter. If you are keeping it personal have personal touches, and be yourself. If you are sticking to a strict brand oriented theme then be sure to stick with that. Do not confuse your followers.
When choosing a color theme stick to light colors. Heavy Twitter themes and colors will deter users from visiting your profile. Keep it, clean people.
There you have it the basics to get you started on building a great Twitter page for your blog. Check out the below tips and tricks to help you bring it to the next level!
