Staying Factual on Your Twitter
One of the most popular platforms for social media is the microblogging platform, Twitter. If you are looking to start using Twitter, there are several things that you need to keep in mind while you’re on there. As you know, information can go viral quite quickly, especially with the ease of “retweeting” and replying to posts from places like your local news long beach. Because of that, you have to make sure that you are giving your followers relevant and factual information. Here are some tips that can help you stay relevant and factual while posting on Twitter.
- Always verify your information. You may see something that one of your followers has tweeted and you may be tempted to retweet it, but make sure that you can verify it with a reliable source, like an international newspaper or from a representative of the organization that is being discussed. If you post unreliable information, then you can lose followers or people’s trust in you will dwindle.
- Don’t stop posting. Don’t take long breaks. Even if you have the weekends off, use software that can help you to automatically post on the weekends. That way, your audience is constantly seeing information from you, and there are more chances for them to retweet what you are saying about a variety of topics. It also means that your tweets won’t get lost in the mix of every other tweet on a person’s feed.
- Don’t fall behind. Posting a five week old article on your feed is okay every once in awhile, but if you are never providing recent information, why should people follow your Twitter? Make sure that you are constantly updating with relevant news. It’s fine if it’s a day or two later, but if you wait too long the information just won’t matter anymore.
