3 Automation Tips for Twitter

Do you automate your Twitter posts? While convenient, there are some good reasons to be mindful when considering automation.

Twitter is big on engagement.

As such, one major faux pas is to frequently post things that make it obvious you’re not there. Posts such as:

“What the heck do I post?”

The long answer to this is, of course, going to depend on some¬†important factors. Some of these include: the individual business, what their goals are, what their clients respond to, what their brand’s personality is and so on. And all of those things most certainly play a huge part in getting it right.

Assuming you know most of that, there is one additional but commonly overlooked element: including great visuals.
