A tweet is the name given to publications on the social network Twitter.

Tweets have a maximum length of 140 characters . They are public (unless a private account is created) and they automatically appear in the timeline of the users who follow the tweeter who has posted the message, that is, who has tweeted.

The length of the posts on Twitter (140 characters) has been given to them since its inception , when messages on the social network were sent as text messages from mobile terminals, with a maximum length of 140 characters.

How to make a perfect tweet

The objective of any tweet is to be perceived and shared by the audience , but considering that the life cycle of a tweet is very short, we must learn to make a perfect tweet :

  • Less than 100 characters : Leave space for comments.
  • Use related hashtags : Although we should not abuse them. The ideal is one or two.
  • Use URL shorteners : This way you will gain space and the tweet will be more pleasing to the eye. Some like Bitly will also allow you to click.
  • Take care of the spelling : Do not make mistakes in your tweets but you want to draw the user's attention for things that do not interest you.
  • Cite the source : Do not endorse any comments or information. For example, via @socialmood
  • Include an image : Image tweets work much better on Twitter.
  • Do not abuse mentions to other users.
  • Include a link : So the tweet will have 3 times more chances of being retweeted.
  • Use "you" (or third person) instead of "I" or first person
