One of the key aspects of using Twitter to promote yourself, a business, service or product online is to grow a targeted list of followers.
When growing a following it’s important to keep in mind that you want to attract a targeted list of follows. In most cases the ‘right’ sort of followers are those who are interested in what you have to say and therefore more likely to make an interaction (e.g. re-tweet or visit).
A key area you can get the message across about what your Twitter account is about is through your bio; made up of your name, location, a 160 character introduction and one link. With so little real estate to work with, getting a succinct message that tells potential followers what you do and tweet about is key to attracting targeted followers.
On the back of yesterday’s revelations in the world of news and the relationship with new online media, I thought this would be a good time to talk about trends. The online blogging, networking and news communities feed on trends. There are many metrics available, to measure these. Some look at search engine queries, others look at Twitter trends whilst there are those that tap into global mentions.
Statistics can often be deceiving though. Just because a topic is trending, numerical data can never provide any context for why or how relevant it is – there’s certainly no accounting for the accuracy of news. However, if its general spikes you’re looking to determine, then there is certainly value to be had. As mentioned previously, a great tool to use if you want to know what has been or is being discussed online is BlogPulse.
