How to Write the Perfect Tweet

I’d say this infographic from Neomobile was almost perfect.

But I wouldn’t recommend always placing your links at the end of the tweet, as that’s the first bit that’ll get cut off if people do an old style retweet or append copy to the start of a reply. It’s safer to put your links in the middle of the tweet—even if that may look a bit ugly—so the integrity of the link is never compromised.

After all, a tweet with a broken link is no use to anyone.

So, on balance, I think I’d recommend this sort of structure:

Perfect Tweet Anatomy

(CTA = call to action)

What do you think?

Here’s Neomobile’s recommendation for comparison:

    This really is perfect!

    I've been struggling to perfect my tweets for ages, never sure on where to put the links, how many hashtags to include etc but this is really helpful.

    What would you say about including images?

    I know that a lot of people love images, especially as Pinterest is so big now. I like putting an image in wherever I can on my tweets (as long as it's relevant of course) as it seems to me that people are more interested by the visual and respond better to images than just text and links.

    Any advice?

    Thanks,

    Kayleigh
