Loads of people be asking questions as to which platform Is best for social blogging and I say all platforms are all very good. Yes I said all because it all depends on which one works for you. Like myself for instance, I use facebook, google+ and the twitter… I prefare to work with these few for now but will definitely expand sooner or later. So what exactly does it take to have one Twitter account? Absolutely nothing more than an active device and internet/data connection to visit www.twitter.com and register.
The beautiful part of this is the fact that registration is free and you can have as much as you want to but please use all wisely and for legal purposes..
So now here is the drill.
1. Create a Twitter Handle..
You can create your handle according to your choice of username. I blog here and used my blog name as my handle @lexhansplace
and also my personal account @iam_ujumenkiti
. So an advice, create one with your brand/blog name so as to allow for professionalism with your audience.
2. Link it to your blog…
Create a bio about your blog and include your blog/brand url for ease of reach by your intending followers/followers.
3. Use a good Avatar/Display picture.
No one wants to follow a handle with no image, so please do get one.
4. When you publish an article, You post/share on your twitter handle for your followers to get a read of it..
Its that simple, your followers will surely want to have something to be reasonable to follow you for, so why not give them your published posts and articles to read up. ( You can always at anytime republish your old articles to keep them alive).
Best part of twitter:
A. You reply.
B. You re-tweet.
C. You favourite.
D. You use #hashtags.
E. You can use Images along with the post link.
F. You write just a few words with your link and post.
G. You get massive traffic from twitter if these are done properly.
H. You have the chance to publish when ever you want to.
I. You follow back your followers (this is by choice but I do follow back also).
J. You get to interact with your social audience on twitter better and faster.
G. The more active followers the more active and good traffic for you.
On a personal experience I’l say twitter is a very good platform to use to socialize and interact with your blog audience. So what are your waiting for?
Get on and create that handle now. Don’t forget to follow my blog @lexhansplace
and also follow my personal handle @iam_ujumenkiti
and also please don’t forget to share this post as someone somewhere will be itching to read and understand a thing or two about twit blogging.
