Are you out of tweet ideas to share? Don’t worry I got you covered as always.
Before jumping into today’s guide, I have two things you need to do;
- Read this post to the end.
- Check out other great twitter posts on my blog.
If you’re thinking about what to tweet or the best tweet ideas to get more followers while providing the best value you can then you’re not alone. Most bloggers get this block every day.
Increased twitter engagements can lead to more followers, connections, fans and even business deals. The more you put out great content on your twitter page the faster your traffic, leads and follower base grow.
Creative tweet ideas = Engaged twitter community!
But thing is;
You know how important great twitter content is but the question that keeps popping everywhere is “WHAT DO I TWEET?” or “WHAT TWEET IDEAS ARE BEST FOR ME?!”
Well, I reached out to a few blogging experts to reveal what they consistently tweet out on their twitter pages and without wasting much time, let’s jump right into it…
Tweet Ideas for Bloggers by Bloggers
1. Tweet a video recommending an affiliate product or an upcoming product launch you are having. Twitter says that videos are 6x more likely to be retweeted. And remember to include a strong call to action.
2. Another idea is to crowdsource your next blog post. Ask for topics that people want to know more about and hear right from your readers.

A thoughtful response to someone else’s tweet. No one cares what you do or how much you know until they know how much you care. Lead with engaging with others, not promoting your own message and people will come to listen and pay attention to what you truly have to say.
About Leonard Kim: Leonard Kim‘s TEDx Talk has been internationally recognized as one of the best TED Talks by Forbes and Inc. Magazine. He now helps individuals and entrepreneurs build their personal brands with Ryan over at InfluenceTree. Follow Kim on Twitter @MrLeonardKim
Reuse your existing content. Over time you’ll share a lot of content on Twitter but that doesn’t mean you only get to share it once. You can tweet it as many times as you want; as long as the content is still relevant.
Use the Twitter media studio to find all your existing videos, gifs, and images. Then select the ones you want to re-tweet and schedule them.

1. As a blogger, you need to start getting on the radar of influencers. They have direct access to your target audience and a relationship with them will be extremely beneficial.
While there are super effective ways to do this like subscribing to their list and replying to their emails, a quick and easy way is to mention them in a blog post and let them know about it via Twitter (you could send them an email too to make sure they don’t miss it.
2. Make your tweets more engaging! Try pulling tips from your posts and including them in tweets along with emotes.

“To grab the attention of different audiences around the world, I always recommend taking a look at what hashtags and topics are currently trending for the day.

You can use Canva, Visme or Pablo to quickly create stunning images. Once they are ready to be tweeted, make sure you use a trend hashtag that is relevant to your post- Carmen Lascu, Empowering Online Marketing & Motivational Hub.”
About Carmen Lascu: Carmen is a social media expert and published author on Amazon. She shares her social media expertise on her website’s blog. Carmen has been listed as one of the top social media influencers on Huffington Post. Follow Carmen on Twitter @CarmenLascu.
“Anniversaries are great occasions to tweet. First, they create a context for a message. Second, there are tons of people following #OTD and #OnThisDay on Twitter…and retweeting. The key is to pick events that people can relate to. You own blog’s anniversary won’t get you much attention. For instance, on the one-year anniversary of a great flood, you might remind people how important it is to have a spare pair of water boots, then attach a pic of a duck wearing water boots and a link to “where to buy water boots”
2. When hashtags relevant to your niche are trending, use Twitter to tweet about your relevant content and include the article’s URL. This is a great way of repurposing old content as well as capitalizing on the recent interest. For example, when I see Google trending, I’ll tweet my older articles about Google with the trending hashtag #Google. If you’re concerned people will think you have a new post for them to read, include the hashtag #ICYMI (In case you missed it) so people know it’s not a new article.
3. Use Twitter to promote your email list optin. In this way, your tweets will help grow your email list. More information about how to use Twitter for blogging success can be found here.

1. Invite influencers to an expert roundup blog post and then tag them on Twitter. For best results, choose a quote from each answer, add the title and the link to the post and tag the author. He or she will most likely retweet it.
2. Make a habit of reading at least one article per day from your industry. Tweet that article, include some relevant hashtags and tag the author. It will be more useful for you than automatically scheduling 10 articles per day that you don’t even read.
3. Always write the name of your blog post and your site’s URL on the images from your articles. This way, even if someone doesn’t read your tweet, the image will stand up and attract more visitors.”

“Social media is all about visuals. This is especially true on Twitter, as there are so many updates being made to a status update feed 24/7.

Create visuals that are simple, clean, and have a great headline or call to action.”

“If you want to improve your twitter feed while building relationships that will have long-term value then you need to do more than actually just “follow” people. I have often used the following framework:
Day 1. Like a tweet related to your shared interests
Day 2. Like 2 tweets related to your shared interests.
Day 3. Retweet 1 of their tweets that contains a link to something interesting they’ve posted
Day 4. Quote retweet 1 of their tweets that links to THEIR site/video/etc.
Day 5. @ reply to something they’ve posted.
By this time, if they’re at all active on Twitter they will have followed you back and will start engaging with you. If they’re not, then move on. The big benefit is that your feed become active with likes and retweets relevant to your industry and ultimately your end audience.”

“Sam Hurley’s ‘List & GIF’ Technique!

1. Choose a suitable list name and select whether you want others to be able to see your list or not (for this particular usage, I’d suggest a ‘Private’ list):
2. Regularly send each person a different GIF with a lovely message, and watch your engagement dramatically increase! [Continually add a good mix of peeps to your list!] 😍”

Twitter thread is now the thing on twitter. People are tired of single tweets that end up getting lost in Twitter’s stream; creative tweet ideas are the only things cutting through now.
Summarise a huge idea and discuss it in a Twitter thread. People will definitely love it and it’ll keep them 2X more engaged.
Not sure how it can help?
Ciara used a single twitter thread to gain over 20,000 followers and also 10x her traffic. Saaay wwhaaattt???!
That was exactly what I said when I came across Guan’s blog post (via pinterest).
Aside gettng s of traffic and followers, I went through Ciara’s. “Miracle” Twitter thread and the thread also got a ton of engagements.
I’ve also personally started trying and testing Twitter threads and have seen great results too so expect a post from me real soon 😉
If you want to have a feel of what and how Twitter threads look like l, here’s one I did on my twitter page:
I know this probably isn’t the best place to teach you creative ways to get real twitter followers but I’ll give it a shot – follow this thread to learn how to get 100 new followers fast! #letsgo
