Twitter has over 200 million active users An active user is considered a user who logs in at leastonce a month There are over 400 million Tweets EVERY day Twitter is where breaking news is reported first so thesubject of most Tweets is very current The age of Twitter users is more diverse than othersocial networks. The majority of Twitter users arebetween 18 and 54 and more younger people are joiningTwitter than any other social network 6. Promoted Tweets 7. Promoted Tweets Promoted Tweets are just normal Tweets that arefeatured at the top of Twitter Search results Lets you reach a wider audience who currently dontfollow you or to spark engagement from your existingfollowers Promoted Tweets are clearly labeled as Promoted Promoted Tweets act just like regular Tweets and can beretweeted, replied to or favorited 8. Where Do Promoted Tweets Appear? At the top of relevant search results pages on twitter.com In Search Results for a Promoted Trend You may see a Promoted Tweet in your Home Timeline if that Tweet isrelevant to you or your profile Brands or partners with enhanced profile pages may choose to pin aPromoted Tweet to the top of their timelines. Enhanced profile pages areonly available to larger companies at this time. Promoted Tweets can appear on official Twitter clients likeTweetDeck, Twitter for iPhone, Twitter for Android Promoted Tweets can also appear on Third-party Twitter clients likeHootSuite 9. When Do Promoted TweetsAppear? A Promoted Tweet will appear in a users timeline only ifthe Tweet is likely to be interesting and relevant to thatuser based on a proprietary Twitter algorithm The Twitter algorithm uses a variety of signals todetermine which Promoted Tweets are relevant tousers, including what a user chooses to follow, how theyinteract with a Tweet, what they retweet, and manymore factors 10. How Often Will They Appear? Twitter is focused on providing a great user experience. As aresult, Twitter is being very conservative about the number ofPromoted Tweets that people see in a single day. Any Promoted Tweet you see in your timeline will appear justonce, at or near the top of their timeline. After the initialimpression, the Promoted Tweet will scroll through yourtimeline like any other Tweet. Once you have seen a Promoted Tweet in your timeline, youwill never see that Promoted Tweet again. This means you have only one chance to catch a viewersattention so your Promoted Tweet has to be well thought out. 11.

Promoted Tweets OptimizationTips The best Promoted Tweets are just like the organicTweets you nd yourself drawn to every day. They are: Insightful - Users come to Twitter to learn somethingnew, and get the inside scoop. Do your Tweets accomplishthis? Exclusive - Exclusive content drives high engagementrates. Does your campaign offer special value to Twitterusers? Conversational - The best Promoted content avoidsadspeak and is rich in shareable insights and content. Doyour Tweets sound like they were written by someone whogenuinely loves using Twitter to interact with others? 36. Optimization Tip - Low ImpressionVolume Make your Tweets as engaging as possible. Ongoing engagement rate is a factor in which tweets compete in and win auctions. Twitterrewards engaging content over advertisers who are noisy or have deep pockets. Remember that exclusive content drives engagement rates - so make your offering a special one. Maintain fresh Tweets Tweets typically lose momentum after theyve been circulating for 1-2 days. Update your PromotedTweets frequently to maintain visibility and a steady stream of engaged users. If you are promotingTweets to your followers, be sure to add fresh Tweets every day to minimize user fatigue. Use relevant keywords or interests For Promoted Tweets in search, be sure to include any important keywords and hashtags in boththe Tweet copy and the keyword list to maximize relevance. Head terms will drive the bulk of your volume, and you should be sure to increase your bidaccordingly when targeting general keywords. For Promoted Tweets in timelines, be sure to includeany important interests to maximize relevance. Have a competitive CPE bid Remember that the bid you specify is your maximum bid, not necessarily the price you willpay per engagement. 37. Optimization Tip ImproveEngagement Improve your Tweet copy Keep in mind that the most engaging tweets are:timely, witty, relevant, informative & platform-specific. Besure to take advantage of popular #hashtags, in-stream videoand photos, and trending topics.
