It’s everyone’s dream on Twitter. When people get their tweets to go viral, it ends up with a lot of publication and extra followers. The problem with most Twitter users is that they think you cannot go viral on Twitter unless you have many followers. This is totally not true. I have seen many Twitterers with less than 500 followers which have had their tweet retweeted more than 100 times. If you are trying to get a viral tweet, follow these steps below and they are sure to encourage others to retweet your tweet and make it go global.
Time of Day
- Please RT, RT & Tweet this if– You are directly asking people to retweet your tweet. Therefore, they know what your aim is for the tweet encouraging them to retweet it.
- You & Your – By addressing people directly makes them think the tweet is at aimed them. From this, it will seem more personal to the people the tweet applies to.
- Because – Using this word informs people why they need to act (being a retweet) and in many cases, act now.
- Thank you – Common courtesy is a great way to get retweets. As well as portraying yourself as someone who is kind and doesn’t take things for granted, it will encourage people to retweet it so they are, like you, portrayed as kind etc…
