Avoid this!

Careful using humor on Twitter.  As Justine Sacco found out, people can interpret your joke in a completely different way than you intended.  You could end up getting fired.

Twitter profile

You want people to follow you on Twitter.  So, when people go into your Twitter feed, they must almost immediately get a sense of what your posts are about.

In my case, I want to have followers who are interested in social media marketing.  So, I tell them about my posts in my profile.  It says, “My tweets are about social media marketing. I post nothing but high quality information about social media.”

Creating the header

For reasons I do not understand, Twitter made it difficult to create the ideal header. So, if these instructions sound weird, bear with me.  If you do what I did, you will follow the steps below to create your header.

Yellow Twitter header template

    1. Upload the above template and save with a descriptive name.
    2. Open it in GIMP and expand it to be 1500 pixels wide.  (It should be around 421 pixels high.)
    3. Go to the Texture King website and get yourself a free textured background.

Scale and break link4. Change the dimensions to 1500 x 421 pixels.  (You’ll have to click on the graphic of the links to do that.)
5. Add an invisible layer to the template and paste the texture into it.
Change opacity of top layer6. Temporarily change the opacity of the textured layer so that you can see the template.
7. Add graphics on top of the yellow part of the template.  You will create a picture describing the purpose of your Twitter account.  (Mine is social media marketing.  So, I added the logos of the main social media I use.  Each logo was on a different layer.)
8. Delete the bottom (template) layer.
9. Starting at the top, merge each layer down.
10. Save with a descriptive name and add it to your Twitter header space.

Scheduling tweets

The short article below is from a Twitter email.

To maintain a lively Twitter presence, you need to Tweet consistently. But you probably don’t want to spend every day glued to your Timeline.

In Twitter Ads, under your “Creatives” tab, you can schedule a Tweet to publish for a time when you’d rather be away from your phone or computer.


You do need a Twitter Ads account to access this feature, but you don’t have to spend money to use it.See more about scheduling Tweets through Twitter Ads or meet the media library — another hidden Twitter trick.Follow us @TwitterBusiness for other insights and updates or try Twitter Ads, which amplifies your efforts on Twitter.
