Not sure what to tweet to get your followers to engage with you? Whether you’re just getting started with Twitter or you’ve been using it for a while, but feel like you’re in a rut, it can be hard to come up with new ideas for what to publish.
Sometimes, it can help to follow some tried-and-true tropes. Here are several Twitter “formulas” you can follow. Just make the following changes to each one:
- Fill in the “blanks” where the [BRACKETS] are.
- Edit the #hashtag with the actual hashtag you’d like to use (e.g. #marketingtips). Hashtags make it easy for people to find your tweets when they’re tracking that hashtag, so you can find more relevant followers.
- Replace @TwitterHandle with a person’s real Twitter handle (e.g. @HubSpot).
Typically, when you want to retweet someone’s tweet, you’ll simply click the retweet button and share the content with your followers. But if you want to know how to retweet with a little flavor, we’re going to show you. There are two ways to add commentary to a retweet: using the “retweet with comment” feature or composing a new tweet and publishing it manually.
