Twitter is an excellent way to get the latest news and follow influencers in various industries. You can click the “star” to “favorite” or bookmark the tweet to read it later or you can save tweets by theme in a “collection”. Use the free Twitter tool, TweetDeck to do that. TweetDeck is a great way to manage tweets, schedule them to post in the future, monitor your notifications, monitor your competitors in a private list, and much more!
Here’s a sample of some of the tweets recently tweets on SCORE’s Twitter account:
We’ve used a cool, free feature of TweetDeck to create this embedded widget. In TweetDeck, click on the “+” sign to add a column and select “collection”. Name your collection then “collect” tweets that you’d like to embed in a blog post.
In the Collections column, click on the control icon at the top of the column then click “Share”, then “Embed” and you’ll get a page were you can format how you want it to appear. Then click get code and paste the code in the “text” tab of the blog post. Don’t paste it in the “visual” because then all you’ll see is code.
Twitter is a powerful tool to get exposure, reach your target market and get search engine optimization (SEO) because tweets come up in Google searches.
