HOW TO BE A #Twittercelebrity
We got Sree Sreenivasan, Chief Digital Officer, Columbia University, to help you get popular on #Twitterverse!
It won’t be long before the number of people following you on Twitter will be considered a skill. So we asked the expert for some handy tips on how to climb the Twitter popularity charts. Remember, you read it in Cosmo first! Participate by posting on a regular basis. Aim for 3-5 posts a day, with no more than one post an hour. But that can vary when you are doing live-Tweeting. Find Twitter chats where lots of folks are talking and jump in. #Participate No one wants to constantly hear about what you’re eating unless you are a food writer or chef. Instead, share things that reflect the best you. #Dontboreme there are at least 50 additional people you could be following. Don’t follow blindly, but seek out good feeds. And no sponsored stuff! #Followingisgood Share content shared by others, using the Retweet button, but also occasionally cutting and pasting the Tweet and putting RT in front of the other person’s Twitter handle. #RTmore People decide in a few seconds whether to follow you or not. Describe yourself clearly and link to a site where people can learn more about you. The more information you give, the more Twitter is likely to suggest you to others as well. Be sure you have a recent, recognisable photo of yourself. And make sure your handle is recognisable and memorable. #Optimise Share things—tips, ideas, articles, that are helpful to others and people will flock to you. #Helpothers Always credit others if they point you to something you are sharing (using “via”) and do include @ mentions when talking about others, so they can get more followers. #Generosityrules Whether you’re following less than 20 people or 2,000, Visuals and videos work great on Twitter, so post more.
