Some of us have never used Twitter and don't understand the point! Some argue it is the same thing as Facebook... but regardless Twitter is a great means of communicating and quite simply put, addicting. With the easy to integrate widgets you can add your Twitter account to your site and show off your presence on social networks.
The basics of Twitter
Each tweet can only be 140 characters. This imposed short length requires successful tweets to be informal, concise, and conversational.
The tweets on your account need to be something that pops. Twitter is often compared to a cocktail party - where you only have a limited amount of time capture people's attention and get a conversation started. And just like a cocktail party you can discuss with like minded people or not! The 140 character limit requires wit and tact to create a conversation and stops rambling!
Some example tweets:
Why connect my Twitter to my website
This is a great way to add up-to-date content to your site and create a more interactive personality with your users. You site users will get another view of your activity and some peeks into your personality. Your website is the detailed description of your activity and Twitter is a way to enrich your content in a creative way. Twitter creates a network in which you can connect conversations to your website. To create links and social networking are extremely important to your sites SEO in 2016.
