I know there are so many ways to write a tweet, but are you writing yours to make it easily readable by your followers? I can guarantee that your readers are not likely to read what you are tweeting if they cannot read it quickly. Here are my tips on writing a good tweet.
Verify the Link You are Sending
Make sure that the link to the article, story, video, photo, etc. you are sending is well-written and easy to read with no misspellings, the video plays and is short and sweet, and the photos are attention-grabbing.
Use Hashtags in the Correct Locations
Use hastags in sentences to a minimum. Place them at the end so as to not interrupt the flow of reading. Overuse of hashtags makes your tweets look like gibberish.
Place Usernames after Your Links
Typically we will put a Twtter username when we are mentioning someone because of an article they wrote. Be sure not to place the usernames strewn about throughout the tweet.
Example of a Bad Tweet
#Apple @MacRumors releases the new #iPad #Mini http://boguslink.notreal
Example of a Good Tweet
Apple releases the new iPad Mini http://boguslink.notreal via @MacRumors #Apple #iPad
