Twitter is one of the most popular social networking websites, with tens of millions of people using it to advertise their businesses and for linking up with others socially. There are certain Twitter tips that you can use to enhance your experience, allowing you to utilize 100 percent of your Twitter account.

Here are 5 tips you can use to help make Twitter a great tool for your marketing efforts:

1. The use of hashtags – Including a hashtag (#) on a comment or status which you have posted that relates to an ongoing event or a popular topic will ultimately make the status appear on the search results of anyone who searches for that topic. Hashtags.org helps track the frequency with which a hashtag is used, informing you of how popular a hashtag is.

2. Delete tweets that you do not need – You should always remove tweets that you accidentally posted, but did not want to post or simply wish to have removed fro the Twitter stream. This can be done by clicking on the image of a trash can that is on your homepage on top of your update.

3. Utilize the Twitter customer service tool – Twitter is one of the best and most effective ways to communicate to others if you have a complaint or a comment about any business. Most medium and large organizations look for tweets about their operations and if you mention what problems or experiences you had with them; you just might get a faster response by tweeting your situation.

4. Make your URLs short – Because every one of the 140 characters that you use counts, it is advised that you make your URLs shorter to leave more room for your message. There are third party services like Ow.ly and Bit.ly that can shorten your URLs accordingly.

5. Avoid broadcasting your location every time – It is understandable that you would want to share your tweet location especially when you’re visiting someplace fun, but only do that on occasion. Click on your profile tab, choose “edit your profile” settings and then check the box for “tweet location” to allow your tweets to identify where you’re tweeting from.

These five Twitter tips should enhance your experience and help your followers, allowing you to maximize your influence with this giant social networking website. Twitter is favored by many college students and is a tool you can utilize on behalf of your company.
