Using Twitter to Get Blog Post Ideas

I use Twitter a ton to get ideas on what to write for my client and personal blogs. Are you on it? Many people shy away from Twitter or think it’s a place to promote. But Twitter is much more than that. Here’s how I use it to get blog post ideas.

Search

Don’t forget about Twitter search! Pop in a term in the search bar and see what comes up. This will not only help you be more social on twitter but also give you a wealth of ideas. You’ll find out what’s buzzing, what people are blogging about, and what their questions are.

Ask for Ideas

Speaking of questions, don’t forget that Twitter is a communication tool. Use it to ask readers what they most want to learn about or what their opinions are.

Interviews

Twitter is a great place to find sources. Send out a request for experts or ideas on who to interview. You’ll be surprised at how easy it is to connect with knowledgeable people this way.

Trending Topics

The trending topics feature will help you abreast of the news and also tell you what people are talking about most. If folks are talking about it, maybe you should blog about it.

Lists

Use the lists function (here’s how I use it) to keep up with your favorite bloggers, or people who chat about a certain subject area. This will help you link to them and give you new ideas.

  1. Use the strategies you already know – Pick 2 or 3 from the strategies which you feel you are best at and use them to promote your site.
    This indicates that the person knows how to obtain content shared and this
    can be a perfect person to network with. Considering
    the profits waiting to become made, there really isn’t
    any decision whether you need to join this kind of site or not.

  2. Microsoft has chosen to integrate the Zune software
    in to the phone, that’s mature and full-featured, having been within the Microsoft Zune for
    years. Sling Media’s Sling – Player software for Windows lets the viewer control live
    TV with all the Live Video Buffer–pause, rewind or fast-forward approximately
    one hour of video. If you are going to be storing a lot of
    media, you’ll want a more impressive one.

  3. Not only it is a local phenomenon, globally, WHO estimated one
    billion adults are overweight and most 300 million are obese.

    If you’ve been overweight, you know that most of the stares coming your path are not positive.
    These components are crucial if succeeding at improving our health and wellbeing and positively impacting our
    quality lifestyle include the objectives.
