    These are some great pointers.  A lot of them, you, have written about before but they are so important.  From sharing multimedia rich content, to automating your content (not conversation :) ) Being in the social media management business I find tip #4 very useful. Specifically when you speak about solving problems in your content.  Most successful business are built off of solving a common problem and relieving  a major frustration.  Doing the same in your content will absolutely gain traction.  Great post!

      Thanks David for the comments.This post will be the key word rich cousin for a presentation I will be doing TED style in 18 minutes at “Social Media Down Under” on Wednesday the 14th of June. The visual version of this will be on Slideshare in the next 24 – 48hours.

    Wow, I just scheduled tomorrows post for my website, and it’s entirely about Twitter Content Strategy. When writing it I was thinking “Twitter isn’t new, is that why other popular social media blogs don’t do many Twitter tips posts anymore?”

    Twitter is probably the most misused, underused, and overused (all at the same time) network on the Internet. It’s also probably that primary network for most social media bloggers. I hope that some people take these tipcs to heart. Good luck with your TED talk!

      Thanks Adam for dropping in and contributing. A lot of people don’t get Twitter. It is a sharp tool that needs to be brought out of the shed..

    Thanks for the comments. How did you notice that the blog post was influenced by Stephen King? Maybe the title should have read 12 lessons from a Twitter maverick and the worlds best selling author! Now you just need to work out who is who :)
    He wrote a great book on writing principles titled” On Writing” it is worth a read that is full of great insights!

    A few writers tend to be of the idea that too much multimedia content distracts the readers
    however plain content is boring too! I love your point on automating twitter> that will definitely save me a lot of time. Thanks Jeff.
    I like your article a lot. Great Read as always.

    • http://jeffbullas.com Jeff Bullas

      Thanks for the comment. It is a fine line sometimes to walk between multimedia, images and text.

  • http://jeffbullas.com Jeff Bullas

    Twitter is often underestimated and used properly is a great content distribution platform.

    What a great post! I don’t think people understand how important twitter is! It is almost like a gateway to everything this, new customers, new clients, new connections. I think the most important thing that you mentioned way headlines! It is so true because I am guilty of only reading headlines you have a certain amount of time to catch someones attention and the best way to do it, is headlines ( interesting ones) and or pictures! Once again great post! Love your blogs. 

    • http://jeffbullas.com Jeff Bullas

      Thanks Shannon. Yes, don’t forget to learn the art of the headline.

  • Chris Picanzo

    Great one Jeff.. It is very important to have followers or better yet a Tribe of followers that is your market specific. I will say the one group of people using twitter like fire are the teens! I have a son and daughter and my son and his friends are very into it. FYI I’m writing this from my iPhone :)

    • http://jeffbullas.com Jeff Bullas

      Yes it is building fast especially as it is now embedded in Apple’s mobile operating system

    Thanks for the comment and look forward to hearing about your success.

    hi Jeff, thanks much for your wonderful article. also i joined tweepi immediately it looks wonderful for followers maintenance. i have now asked them where do i maintain my twitter lists. 
    for you i have the following question: people these days are so much drilled to re-ply instead of just ply. when twitter started there was no expand, no “conversation”. i contemplate that twitter dropped the ambition level by giving the audience what they are used to instead of asserting them that being authentic is good, and interaction is not necessarily the same as re-action.
    so the question is: what is your view on this change from twitter from “what are you doing?” to “what is happening?” to now being able to reply and expand a conversation?

    best regards, Ron

    Thanks for a very informative
    article. Since the Twitter explosion, those who want to gain a large following should
    heed your suggestions. It is very true
    that if you want a large following, you need to focus on the category of your
    choosing, follow the experts in that category, and make sure your tweets are not
    only be informative but “educate, entertain and inspire”. I try to grab their attention with a headline
    that makes my followers want to read what I posted. I try to make my posts relevant to what they
    want/need to know about, and I try to find interesting things others may not
    have seen before.

    I do find frustrating those blogs
    and/or websites that have a twitter name/account, but don’t use a twitter
    sharing function on their site. It takes more steps to get their information out
    to my followers. There are even a few
    blogs I enjoy that don’t have a twitter account, so it even harder to get the
    information I find from their sites out on twitter.

    Good morning!

    Sorry to be a pain, but could someone very briefly explain how twitter helps with seo, please?

    Many thanks,

    • http://jeffbullas.com Jeff Bullas

      THanks for the question. There is one indirect way Twitter helps with SEO. It allows people to discover your blog content read it and then link to it. It contributes significantly to link building but only if you are creating quality contagious content that people want to link to..
