I am watching a great training on how to use Twitter to grow your YouTube channel from Think Media TV when it occurs to me that, in general, I am using Twitter incorrectly.
Now, I have heard this said many times before. Twitter is about conversations, not just to push content. Since I wanted to add tweets, all I did was repost stuff from other media. It is time I learn to use this thing. So, I ask the great Google how do I find popular hashtags. This is the main answer it gave me:
- Find out what influencers are using.
- Find trending hashtags in your niche.
- Find relevant cross-platform hashtags.
- Drill down to find more specific hashtags.
- Use Twitter’s tailored trends.
- Use Hashtags.org to find trending hashtags and more.
- The low-tech option: brainstorming.
Apparently, the great Kim Garst was the person I need to thank for this answer (she does have great content). Then, I read it again and noticed number 6. It is time to do more research. I accessed hashtag.org and discovered that I don’t think half of the current trending hashtags are actual words that apply to me.
These were the hashtags trending up at the time I did this research:
#endyemensiege, #mustblow, #coloradomusic, #despacitoremix50m, #83ulkeala2istiyor, #dadvader, #mustblowparty, #feuillederoutefi, #coalition, #oxfam, #surprisingmenuitems, #ramaphosa, #climbon, #heinekenzatweeta, #betoftheday, #fsrsport, #soundslikeyou, #catia, #expochat, #mercurial, #shoe, #lustforlife, #waybackwednesday, #pt, #hardknocks
I think I can relate to two. So off I go to start a conversation, or two. I will keep you posted on my progress of learning Twitter. How do you use Twitter? Leave me your comments below. For those of you interested, I left the Think Media TV video below. The guy is very good at explaining things thoroughly. Enjoy.
