Twitter is a website, owned and operated by Twitter Inc., which offers a social networking and micro blogging service, enabling its users to send and read other users’ messages called tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters displayed on the user’s profile page. Tweets are publicly visible by default, however senders can restrict message delivery to their friends list.
Users may subscribe to other authors’ tweets—this is called following, and subscribers are known as followers. According to twitter there are 1 billion number of tweets posted per week. In one year twitter increased their mobile users from 14.28 million to 26 millions users. In February 2010, Twitter reported having over 200 million active users.
Maintaining a thriving Twitter account that makes you money means more than just being on Twitter; you have to be apart of Twitter. Here are ten key tips to keep in mind to make sure that you are getting the most out of your efforts on Twitter.
A lot of people think your Twitter’s presence is measured against getting the most followers you can. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. What you need to focus on is finding high quality followers.
Having those high quality followers will allow you to share information (your tweets) with the people who want and need to hear it. Your followers will naturally increase because you have high quality followers sharing your tweets.
So, above all else, the quality of your followers is important. Having said that, you do need to focus on getting more followers, because if you’re just tweeting to five people…well, you’re wasting your time.
