4. Use a Tweet Thread if you want to link your tweets

Why use This

If your message exceeds 280 characters then you may use this method. Some people may not like using an image or a screenshot as in point 2 above because they feel that tweeting per point is better for conversational purposes. What we have noticed is that Tweets usually don’t get lost when you thread them or get taken out of context.

Be very careful though because a long thread may bore people.

Make sure you turn the private slider on to make your list private. If it’s public, each competitor will get a notification when you add them. You dont want that.

Why use This

Lists are great because Twitter can be overwhelming and you just want to see what your competitors are up to. Lists help you to keep up with what’s going on in your industry and keeping up with updates. You can also just create a list, containing anyone you may like.

A point to note. Twitter Lists can be public or private. A public list will allow other users to see it on your profile and potentially subscribe to it. However with a private list only you can view it.

Creating a list is great because you can control what you want to see or keep up with certain people. As your Twitter account grows its advisable to start a list. Out twitter account at @Heropost1 is still young so we actually can keep up with our stream.

A point to note is that if you do not like the list you’re on you can contact the list creator and ask them to remove you or you can just go straight for the block.
