It’s a great time of year to give your Twitter account a bit of good housekeeping.
By following the below 5 tips your Twitter account will look as if it has had a really great facelift!
Inactive Tweeters, Tweeters with have no profile pictures and yes even those who are not following you back. Manage Filter is a really fast and effective Twitter tool to enable you to tidy up your account by bulk unfollowing.
This is a good way to group your Tweeters the same way you would if you were tidying up a filing cabinet it’s a simple job that will enable you to quickly identify topics and themes. Twitter lists also have the added bonus of cutting out some of the noise we all experience on Twitter when looking though our Twitter streams.
There are two options available
Option 1 an open list which other tweeters can follow.
Option 2 is a closed list.
All you need to do is click on the link at the top of the page that says “Profile“. After your Avatar you will see the “Edit your profile” text. On the right hand side sits the “create a new list drop down box“. Click the drop down box, now you will be given the option to create an open or closed list.
Take a minute to name your list and add some basic details so other Tweeters who look at it know instantly what your Twitter list is about. This will influence if they decide to follow the list or not and of course if you decide to keep it private your list will be exactly that private.
Once you have created your list you can add it into your Twitter management platform if you use one. Such as Hootsuite and Tweetdeck for easier viewing.
If you do not have a set business background for your Twitter account I recommend using Themeleon.
They have an amazing range of professional Twitter backgrounds.
If you haven’t changed your Avatar in a while look for a new image that best reflects you.
Take look at your bio does it need updating, changing just a few words may make it more appealing. It’s like with most things in life when we start on a journey we learn so much along the way that your bio may not even represent who you are anymore.
So what do you do when you have connected with everyone you know on Twitter and what to look further afield.
Never underestimate the power of an RT!
