How To Use Twitter For Publicity Purposes

04/11/2014 Adrienne N. Hester

TwitterThe second most popular social network, behind Facebook, is the micro-blogging website Twitter, according to eBizMBA. For some companies it's growing in popularity among young people faster than Facebook. As a matter of fact, many believe Facebook has now hit the ceiling in the United States while Twitter still has room to grow. This is why it's the social network to look for publicity.

#Hashtags

#Hashtags can be started by literally any #Twitter user, however the ones that gain the most popularity are most often businesses, celebrity and world event related. This is because those garner a large follower base and are able to keep lots of people disseminating the #hashtag. When enough people to do so, the #hashtag usually ends up in the trending topics section visible to all #Twitter users on their home page of the site.

Sponsored Tweets

Companies are now able to pay money to have sponsored tweets. These tweets go into the stream of news feeds of a lot of people regardless if they do or do not follow your account. This in turn may lead to more followers for your account, which is sure to put your message in front of more eyes than before. Your publicity just might increase with the paid option.

Media Reporting

Some of the best publicity on Twitter comes from the media reporting on the things tweeted throughout the site, especially when something unusual gets tweeted. You can believe the blogs and major media outlets will pick up on it. That's earned media and that is a win. Hopefully it's positive and that's good news for the company.
