Best Practices for Shorter Tweets

BEST PRACTICES FOR SHORTER TWEETS If you're ever stuck making edits to a tweet that just won't seem to fit, check out the tips below to trim a few characters and make your message fit. 1. FIND SHORTER SYNONYMS Use a tool like Thsrs to find shorter synonyms for any longer words you'd like to use in your tweets. 2. AVOID USING “AND" & Make sure that there are no places where you use the word “and." This is easily replaced with an ampersand or plus sign. 3. LOSE UNNECESSARY PRONOUNS Get rid of unnecessary pronouns and articles, like the words “that" and "the" wherever possible. 4. FIND THE BEST LINK SHORTENER While TinyURL shortens links for you, sites like bitly actually produce even shorter links. 5. SUBSTITUTE NUMBERS FOR WORDS This is another easy fix if you see your character count dwindling down. "One" becomes “1," and so on. 6. USE CONTRACTIONS WHENEVER POSSIBLE You should make sure you don't have any instances of “can not" or "would not" that can be shortened to “can't" or “wouldn't." BONUS TIP: Drop vowels from certain words and use common abbreviations where possible. Just be careful not to sound like a texting teenager. %23
