40 Things To Tweet About Besides Your Business

Twitter is one of the great social media platforms that should not be ignored in social media marketing. However, Twitter feeds go pretty quickly and unless someone is searching for your hashtag used, your 1 or 2 tweets may never be seen. While over-posting on most social media platforms is a big no-no, Twitter is a bit different. Because of the fact that it goes so fast, you can actually post more times per day. In fact, it is recommended that you do! Posting a minimum of 6-8 tweets a day (spread out) is actually ideal. You can also re-post some of your older content.  But, you don’t want to make the posts simply about you or your business – or it may feel too sales-y and people will click “unfollow” … FAST…. That’s why today we are going over 40 things to tweet about besides your business. Try adding a few of these into the mix of tweets in order to start getting more engagement and recognition on Twitter! Slowly but surely followers will come and they will take notice of your tweets! (Note: while a few are “business related” – they focus on alternative fun ways to spotlight your brand)
