Tweeting about your business on Twitter is another way of showing your customers what you have going on during the day through quick blurbs. Facebook is all about making the overall connection with your customers and YouTube is about making videos to show your customers what your business is about.
Twitter is a quick and easy way for customers to check up on a business and the world in general because of its easy to use platform.
If you’ve never used Twitter before here’s a quick run-down of the site. Twitter allows you to create 140-character posts about anything that you want. It is easy to say a few words about something, leave it there and go about your day without having to worry about writing long posts and drawn out content.
Twitter regularly updates their feeds, which means your feed can drastically change from one minute to the next. It is a high-speed recollection of everything that is going on in the world from current events to business news, to opinions that people have on a variety of subjects.
When it comes to your business, you should be using the platform for tweeting about your business on Twitter and things that are going on in the industry.
Your Businesses First Tweets
The most important thing about your first tweet is that it is getting your company’s name into the Twitter universe. Before you send out your first tweet, it is important that you’ve fully finished setting up your account. The first tweet that you send should be something that is witty and clever to grab your audience’s attention.

When it comes to the platform, only business accounts can take advantage of the ability to advertise.
It is vital that you make sure that the first few tweets you send include a link to your website. If you don’t want to waste characters, you can use URL changes to make your URL much smaller.
It is also a good idea to post at least one picture with your first few tweets. While Twitter isn’t necessarily the best place to advertise your photos, it does allow you to share images and show your followers what your company is up to.
Once you’ve set up your account, you’ll want to start following other users of the site. Follow your personal Twitter account and other businesses that are similar in nature to yours, as well as industry insiders.
You can also follow news and other informational accounts but be cautious with these because it can turn out to be detrimental to your business if you show people how you feel about specific controversial topics.

Similar to Facebook, retweeting means sharing someone else’s original tweet. Doing this allows you to connect with other companies that are related to your industry.

With the different connections that you can make on Twitter, it’s a good idea to try to retweet relevant information and Tweets as often as you can.
While you still want to create your own tweets and put things on your account that are related to your business, retweeting other’s information is just as important because it is something that will ensure that you are getting the most out of the platform and it will allow you to connect with other companies.
