After a great run, the Winning the Internet blog has been retired. However, you can still keep in touch with New Media Mentors here.
Here are some highlights:
- Tweets with image links get 2x the engagement of those without. That’s easy enough to do – and apparently worth the return.
- Tweets with 100 characters get 17% more engagement. Okay, shorter is better. I think we knew that.
- Tweets with hashtags get 2x more engagement. You can research hashtags by checking out this post I wrote a little while back.
- Your tweets have a 12x higher chance of being re-tweeted if you ask for it, and 23x higher, if you actually spell out the word “retweet.” Now that’s a no brainer.
Good stuff here thanks to the author, Belle Beth Cooper. Time to tweet, more, better.
