Twitter Tip: Leave room for retweets
Posted by Charles | Filed under Twitter
Ever go to retweet something and your over 140 characters? Next thing you have to do is to start cutting out random parts of what was said to make it fit.
When your posting a link or anything else that you would like to be retweet try to make it easy for people. Don’t use the entire 140 characters, instead leave enough room at the end so that it can easily be retweeted. In my case I know I must leave at least 15 spaces after anything I would like retweeted (enough to fit “RT @CharlesPal “). This gives me only 125 characters left to use.
This is not something that I do on every tweet but it’s a nice thing to remember when posting something that you hope to be retweeted.
