I am sure that many readers will agree that social media is quite addictive and many of us will have our preferred platforms that we use in both our personal lives and in business. I spend much of my ‘social media hours‘ on Twitter as I find it the best place to catch up on the latest news (let us face it, most press / media outlets now push out fake or toned down news depending if the are left or right minded), how businesses close to me are marketing themselves and its a place to share my thoughts, comments and opinions.

How we use Twitter can very much determine the rewards we get from using it and within this blog I wish to focus on those who use Twitter for business. Here are 33 key tips that you need to put in to practice to help you to achieve the best results:

  8. Share your content ie blogs, videos, images via Twitter.
  9. Make sure your Twitter account is included on your website so people can follow you.
