5 Ways to Boost Your Twitter Engagement

http://www.socialmediaexaminer.com/5-ways-boost-twitter-engagement/

#1: Refine Your Twitter Bio

#2: Act Human

#3: Ask People to Act

If you want followers, you can get more of them. If you want shares, you can get more of those, too. All you have to do is ask.

Even big brands understand the power of asking for a retweet.

Your goal is to get more engagement for your tweets, right? Sometimes you just have to ask, and many times people are happy to oblige.

#4: Harness the Power of Hashtags

Hashtags let you interact with the most viral and current topics at any given time.

Hashtags can double your Twitter engagement rate, increase your number of followers and improve your reputation.

#5: Post Consistently

Twitter job-search

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on 19th September 2014

SCSU students are given the narrow choice of MN e-Folio.
Since it is a MnSCU supported service, few students are exposed to additional information about the possibility of using LinkedIn as an electronic portfolio, and, respectively, tool for finding employment.  An increasing number of SCSU students circumvent even the LinkedIn possibility and search for jobs using Twitter. Here is an article, which reflects a tendency, I have been observing for the past 2 years.

Be Twitter-savvy in your job search

To increase your chances of getting the attention of a recruiter on Twitter, follow these three tips:

  1. Be strategic about your bio.
  2. Be relevant (and use discretion)
  3. Engage with the recruiter you followed.

Chef the movie

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on 14th September 2014

There is a movie about a middle-aged cook, his early-teen son, who TWEETs and VINEs and helps his dad’s career: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2883512/

chef movie, poster

Good actors but weak plot and movie. My blog entry is not about the movie quality, but about the notion that social media is saving the main character’s career and helps him self-promote.
