Kick-Butt Author and Publishing Tips and Ahas

Kick butt sheep test 2

Twitter is one of my favorite social media platforms… here’re a couple of tips to make your weekend.

twitter tipAha #TweeterTip #1: Are you asking your Peeps to Retweet you? Just add to the end of your Tweet: Please Retweet … Hint: if you spell out versus abbreviating (pls RT), you have a higher probability of getting a “goose” from others.




twitter tipAha #TweeterTip #2: Twitter allows for 140 characters which include your spacing. Did you know that if you reduce it to 110 total characters you have a 17% higher probability of being Retweeted?
