Twitter is where people share their opinions, connect with others who share their passions, and find out what’s current in the world right now–it’s also one of the best platforms to share relevant content. Because Twitter users expect short, useful information, it can be a great way to drive followers to your website, promote older content pieces, and engage with other influencers.
In this webinar, we will guide you through the chaotic but valuable world of Twitter. For those who tune in, you will learn the basics of managing your Twitter account and how your organization or group can use this tool to better communicate with your members, followers and the community at large.
- Explore the demographics of Twitter
- Develop a social media strategy, with a focus on Twitter
- Best practices for creating content
- Managing your time on Twitter
