If you’re a regular Twitter user, you probably think you know what a good tweet looks like.
A good tweet should have a catchy headline, shortened link, hashtags and fewer than 140 characters. Yes, I know you know.
But an infographic from NeoMobile.com offers a few additional tips that can help you make your tweets even more successful. Here are a few:
1. Use no more than two hashtags per tweet. If you include any more, your tweet will look like spam.
2. Avoid slang and abbreviations. Your followers may not know that AFAIK means “as far as I know,” but they will understand “I think.”
3. Don’t be afraid to use symbols. They can help you save space and make your tweets look cleaner. For example, replace “and” with an ampersand.
