1) Biggest lessons I've learned on Twitter (13th #MyTwitterAnniversary edition) there is still a 5,000 limit on following people on Twitter until you have that many followers, (see reference here: help.twitter.com/en/rules-and-p…) but no limit to followers on LinkedIn. 1/13
2) besides your profile bio (limited characters) you only can "pin" one tweet which stays at the top of your profile, but you can add others to this 1st tweet & they stay up there as well. Use the + in the lower right to add tweets & they are treated as one or a collection 2/13 This photo shows the ALT text for Twitter in August 2021.
3) adding alt text to an image or video is a way to be more inclusive AND another way to get more words on Twitter (1,000!). The image or video description (characters) is in addition to your tweet characters! Inclusiveness has another benefit & just makes everything better 3/13
4) Use twitter lists! twitter.com/stilldrey/lists for MS EDU, @TwitterSpaces & #MVPBUZZ - you can subscribe to these and other lists or create your own and make them public or private - twitter.com/MicrosoftEDU/l…, twitter.com/betsyweber/lis… & @DrewShah1 and @unixterminal
4/13
5) Use moments to take hashtags, topics or events and make them easy to retrieve or share in the future. Moments are setup around a theme and can be curated (share and group what you want) then shared on Twitter. Here is one about MVP info: twitter.com/i/events/11482… #MVPbuzz 5/13
6) On the mobile Twitter app, you can save drafts of tweets (maybe as you are composing a tweet & you want to get a link to a website, take or crop a photo, mention someone, get a name, word or phrase just right). When you cancel your tweet, you can either save or delete 6/13
7) Hashtags let you find stuff like my #TipTuesday or #TechThursday posts, #CommunityRocks or #MVPbuzz tweets. Try searching - already a hashtag on twitter? Easier for others to find/discover. I love #BlackTechTwitter and #ClearTheList not a thing yet, it’s just your tweets! 7/13
8) Great suggestions from @lbaer_lisa “This is a great reminder to also use ALT Text your images, #CamelCase your hashtags and use captions for videos to make them accessible!” I try to do all of these and she shared a tweet from @Goodable about #MisterRogers 8/13
9) If you mess up a tweet in a series, you can delete the last one to make a correction - no edits for now. Only one pinned tweet unless you start with two or more. There are Twitter bots that will “unroll” or put back together a series of tweets to make them more readable 9/13
10) linkedin.com/feed/following/ how many followers do u have on LinkedIn? I have broken through the 5k followers on Twitter, but LI is 10k. My LinkedIn posts generally out perform Twitter. These are easily my 2 largest audiences on social media today. YouTube is around 💯 subs 10/13
11) If you want to network, there are some great options like @MentorMesh here on Twitter, #HumansOfIT on #MicrosoftTechCommunities techcommunity.microsoft.com and the #TributeApp when you join Microsoft’s Tech Community. Any others you would suggest? 11/13
12) I’ve scheduled a post for the 1st each month as my reminder to add to my #MVPBuzz list new MVPs. There are some great stories of people like you who have been contributing for years & finally get the recognition! Nominate someone that never has been-MVPs or MSFT FTE 12/13
13) Once you have added 2 or more tweets & pin the 1st one as your pinned tweet, you can add as new things come up & they become part of your pinned tweets thread. You can unroll this into one long post using unroll bots like @threadreaderapp 13/13
