One thought on “7 Simple Ways To Get More Out Of Twitter

    These are all great tips. There are a couple things I’ve been doing to make Twitter work better for me…

    – When I get a new follower, I send them a direct message (not automated), using their name, and ask what kind of stuff they’re doing in life. Eventually, after talking about themselves long enough, they’ll ask I what I do and we’re off to the races.

    – There are some Twitter accounts that specialize in tweeting out jokes, like Joke Blogger and others. Getting into their stream can yield a bunch of retweets and favorites. Then you follow Step 5 above.

    – Something new I’m trying (just in the last week or two) is segmenting all my followers into location based lists. As much as possible anyway. Many people don’t list their location. Then I set up a column in Tweetdeck that only shows me tweets from people in areas I’m playing in the next week or two. I can then concentrate on conversing with those people and they’re more likely to pay attention when tweets about my shows in their area pop up. I can also selectively DM some of those people with a personal invite to the show.
