Good Content Isn’t Cheap, So Recycle It Strategically

3 Ways to Stand Out on Twitter

Let’s start this out with an experiment.

Take out your phone and open Twitter. Send out a tweet, it doesn’t matter what it says. Take a look at it, sitting pretty up there on the top of your feed. Leave it alone for ten or fifteen minutes.
Now, go back to Twitter and look for your tweet in your feed. It took a bit of scrolling to find it, right? And if it was tough for you to find, and you were looking for it, imagine how somebody who wasn’t looking would end up finding your tweet.
That’s a fundamental problem for businesses using Twitter. If you’ve been on Facebook, I’m sure you’ve noticed that its News Feed is no longer organized chronologically. Instead, Facebook has instituted a complicated algorithm that helps determine what is the most interesting content for you, and pushes that to the top of your News Feed.

As far as we know, it is a combination of your activity patterns, the post’s recency, and the engagement with that post. The formula itself is a closely guarded secret, and it is constantly improving the user experience for all.

Twitter, on the other hand, has no such algorithm. Tweets simply run through your feed chronologically. It’s simple, equitable, and it makes it difficult for businesses trying to promote their own content.
