Anywhere you visit, any blog you read, you'll just find 'Twitter, twitter, twitter..' everywhere. In order to define it, it can be said that, 'a Social Networking site which allows its members to put short updates and status and share it to their followers is known as Twitter'. If you haven't already started to find out what Twitter is, its power and marketing capability, then you're in the right place. In this article, I'll be giving 6 Useful Twitter tips for beginners telling them what they can do in their first day on Twitter and how they can take their business to the next level with the help of Twitter. This article is only produced for the BEGINNERS, not for all.
6 Things which You Can Do in the First Day on Twitter
Tip-1: You can share links
Some websites have long URLs which are not possible to share in Twitter just within 140 Characters. But there's nothing to get scared about. You can easily try some free URL shortening services- such as bit.ly, adf.ly and many more!
Tip-2: Use DM for Direct Messaging
You can send direct messages through your Twitter account. This DM function can be located in your Twitter control panel. You can send messages and make a good conversation there. However, you won't be able to send messages only to those people who are following you.
Tip-3: The proper usage of @ sign while replying
If you want to contact with one Twitter user, you can easily use the @sign while contacting or replying to that guy. But keep in mind that, everybody in your Followers' List would be able to check it out.
Tip-4: Usage of The #Hash-Tag for categorizing your Tweets
If you want to make a series or Tweets or simply make a group of them, just use the hash-tag. Suppose, if you're willing to tweet about ipad, try with #ipad. This will help you to show up your iPad tweets when a man is searching on Twitter about tweets related to iPad.
Tips-5: Use RT in order to ReTweet
If you find a tweet (previously posted by a member whom you're following) worth of sharing, then you can re-tweet it easily. In addition to that, you can give some credit to the Tweeter by putting RT @UserName and then Paste The Tweet.
Tips-6: Use TwitPic to share photos
You can easily share your pictures through Twitter. TwitPic is the most common and used massively. If you want to try something new, then you can opt for TwitGoo.com
These are some basic but useful twitter tips for new and basic users. Hope it's useful to you.
