Twitter is not a social network with a public as large as Facebook, however, we must think that, as it does not have many users, it does not have as much competition.
A good marketing campaign on Twitter can bring you excellent results and even more if it allows you to capture an audience that prefers this network to others. It is obvious that on Twitter the number of publications is much lower than on Facebook and it is for this reason that your visibility may be higher.
In this article, you will understand better how this social network works and how you can use it in your favour. Will you come with me?
What is the dynamics of Twitter?
Twitter uses the concept of a social network with that of a blog, which is defined as microblogging. In this network, publications cannot have more than 280 characters, its objective is to have short and objective publications that facilitate the transmission of information.
The social network was created in 2006 and had great differences of what it is now that it has more than 300 million active users. Originally Twitter posts could only have 140 characters, which limited communication in some languages. The increase for 280 characters was not for all languages.
Twitter posts, besides being quick to read and write, can contain images, links, surveys, emojis, gifs and even videos.
How does Twitter work?
The functioning of Twitter is a little different from that of other social networks. The relationship between the contacts is similar to that of Instagram, it is not reciprocal.
On Twitter, users can have two functions: followers and following. Among your contact,s you will have two groups, those you follow and those who follow you. Logically in these two groups, there may be users in common, in this case, it is said that they are co-followers.
When you follow someone you can see their publications on your timeline, these publications are known as tweets on the platform, the same happens with those who follow you, your tweets will appear on your timeline. As you are the one who decides who to follow, the content you see in your timeline depends on you.
There is the option to share a user’s publication, (it is not necessary that you follow it or that you follow it to do so). For that, you just have to click on Retweet, popularly known as RT, in any publication and you’re done. It will appear on your wall next to your other publications.
In this network the # (hashtags) work very well, so use them in your publications, so it will be easier for other users to find your content.
One of the Twitter tools that deserves a highlight is their lists especially if you want to attract audiences. Here I will explain how you can use them.
How to use Twitter lists?
Twitter lists serve to segment those you follow. With them, you can group users by content types. They are very useful to find the type of information you want at a certain time or you can also use them to get public.
The lists on Twitter can be of two types, public or private.
Public lists can be used to disclose your content, all users of a public list have access to your content when consulting the list.
You can access the content of a public list in two ways, by becoming a member or by registering for it.
A member is a person who was chosen by the creator of the list to be part of it. All publications made by members on your wall appear in the list.
A person who signs up on a list is one to whom the content seems interesting and who wants access to it. However, your publications will not be displayed next to the content of the list.
- Member: Your tweets are part of the content of the list and have access to the content published by the other members.
- Registered: You have access to all the contents of the list, but your tweets are not part of it.
You can create your own public lists, be part of them and select others that address similar issues to be members. Over time you can have several enrolled if you make an interesting selection.
The private lists are perfect to know what our competition is doing, with them, the members will not know that they belong to your list. Remember, you do not need to follow the members of your list, so you can spy on them without them suspecting it.
Private lists can also help you to know a little more about your followers, through them you can know what their concerns, the type of things that interest them and what their desires are, in this way you can create content that really reaches them.
