So you ask, how can I optimize my Twitter posts?
There are a few things that you need to tweak in your twitter game plan to accomplish Twitter-euphoria.
Lets start off with some really interesting stats that can bump up your tweet one step at a time.
- To have a picture or not? Strange but true, people love visuals. So including a picture within your tweet will most likely get you 2 times the engagement!
So yes, it is a smart plan of action to post a picture relating to your tweet.
140 Characters or Bust?
Should you try to max out all 140 characters? Believe it or not, the answer is: No
This is another stat that was similar for Facebook. On both platforms. If you’re posting tweets with links, Dan Zarrella’s study results shows that 120–130 characters will be your sweet spot.
Retweet Blues: If you don't ask than don't expect it to happen
You know what happens when you assume, right? I always thought it would turn people off to ask for a Retweet, that is far from the case. The Retweet rate is 23X higher if you spell out the word “Retweet”. That doesn't seem overly difficult.
I was using 4 – 5 hashtags in my tweets at one point thinking the more the merrier! Not a good idea.
How many hashtags is enough? Great question! I have heard the more hashtags the better, but that is not true. If you stick with 1 to 2 optimized hashtags you have a 21% chance of higher engagement compared to peppering your tweet with 3 or more hashtags.

Tweet it once and be done?
definitely not the case. There are so many different ways you can format a tweet differently and still send it to the same content. The biggest thing you have to consider is your tweet may get over looked the first time. This makes it clear that you want to tweet out the same link but just switch it up a bit.
Post your content more than once but make each tweet unique. Just because you posted something once, it may have been overlooked. A few ways you can do this is by changing the verbiage and the hashtags if needed. It really isn't that difficult.
I also use Hootsuite to schedule out my Twitter posts. It is a simple yet effective tool to manage your tweets and keep an eye on the metrics.
