Plus, the site’s growth is outpacing that of Facebook (although Facebook’s membership is nearly four times that of Twitter).

You probably have a Twitter account. And, in all likelihood, so does the company signing your paychecks. In fact, there’s a good chance you manage that Twitter feed.

The task can be daunting. So, to celebrate Twitter’s birthday, we’re giving you a gift.

From a story that ran on PR Daily last year, here’s a list of 40 possible tweets to send to your followers:

1. Identify a hashtag you are following for the day and why (or list a few that you think are worth a look).

2. Discovered a new app or tool that’s useful? Provide a brief description and share the direct link. (You can find new and useful tools on the weekly column Platform 5.)

3. A link to a Wikipedia entry from your niche can be very useful—especially if it’s been updated.

4. Link to someone’s Twitter favorites; they are usually full of hidden treasures for you and your followers.
