Twitter is a microblogging website, this social site has millions of users including almost each and every celebrity, politicians and sports person.

Everyone is using twitter because of its flexibility of interaction and it makes everything sharable with ease, but I was not using twitter seriously, I have a twitter account from the beginning of my this blog, and also I have my personal twitter account, But I was using just to tweet my post and post on other blogs, but that was my big mistakes.

I discussed with Amit Shaw(iTechcode.com) and Ehsan(Guideandnews.com), about twitter and how can I get much maximum benefit from my twitter profile, they helped me in my each and every query, after few discussions I started my work on twitter.

Now I am an active Twitter user, After using twitter regularly 2 weeks my analytics graphs shows me that I am getting highest referral traffic from twitter, before it was Facebook now Facebook is in 2nd Position and Google Plus is at 3Rd.

It means I was wasting my most of time on Facebook to promote my posts where twitter does this easily without that much effort.

Share Great Content

Your content is the key to get traffic from your tweets, if you are just tweeting like normal users it will not affect you, but if you tweet in some attractive way then you will surely get attention among all other tweets in the field, create great content and then share it in unique ways.

Tweet only if you find the tweet most useful, never tweet only because someone else is tweeting your tweet, that may kill your following on twitter.

Connect with others

Twitter is a Social networking, and you know the meaning of networking, so you have to connect with other Twitter users to get more benefit from twitters,it’s very easy to make relations and create connections with other Twitter users , it’s very powerful for making the community around your Business.

Another benefit is that, You are using the same site use by celebrities and all popular people in the world, so you can easily connect with them and also you can get their appreciation on your tweets.

Always follow people who belong to your blog and business and you are relate to you directly or indirectly.

@Mention Others in your Tweet

Mention feature is the one of the great feature of twitter, a mention on perfect timing can give you thousands of return visitors only from one tweet, for example you are writing a post about Bill Gates and bill gates found your post awesome, and if you get a retweet from Bill gates then you can just imagine how many retweets you will get, and same thousands of big names following bill gates and they retweet that post again, then your tweet will spread on the whole twitter network and you will get tons of visitors.

But don’t misuse this feature, if your post really worth reading and your post relates to that person, then mention those big names in your tweet, otherwise you are just spamming twitter to try your luck to get a retweet.

Use Twitter Tools

Twitter is a very simple website in use, but you can make it easier by using twitter tools, there are many Twitter tools available those twitter applications help you to use twitter as a power user, you can do many tasks from those applications like bulk reply, automate your tweets, bulk unfollow tool, and twitter management.

Some of them are Just Retweet, twitter Deck , commun.it.

Use Hash Tags Properly

#Tags are very important for a tweet, whenever people search something on twitter mostly twitter search first for hash tags and then mention after that keywords, so if you are using hash tags and someone search a particular topic on twitter and you have that hash tag in your tweet, then you will get traffic.

Example : #Socialmedia, #howto , #BlogTips ,#SEO

You might have noticed the trending topics on twitter, those topics are hot on twitter and millions of people are tweeting on that topic you should also join trending topics and tweet about that topic to get some benefits may be as new followers of retweets.

Start Conversation in Tweets

Conversations are always catchy and if your discussion is convertretial and important then everyone love to read them,when you start a conversation with someone on twitter, people will love to read and also they can join the conversation and while interacting always use hash Tags and mentions to get maximum benefits from the a twitter conversation.

You can ask a question to start a conversation or you can discuss some ideas with a few people and many bloggers use Twitter to discuss topics, because they get attention and lots of followers in return.

  1. Hi Nishant,
    Thanks for sharing simple, basic but very useful insight about Twitter.

    I have tried to get traffic from Twitter but didn’t get much luck but after reading your article I would like to give it another try.

    I know many of my friends who is getting decent traffic through Twitter.

    Lets see what will happen this time.

    • Hi Sandeep,

      Twitter needs time to work, and I know you are very busy you have lots of things to manage and its not easy to use twitter regularly for a busy person, Hope you will get huge traffic in this attempt, try to be active from smartphones if you are not with PC or laptops.
      Thanks
      All the best!

  2. Wow Really Great to See that you are getting 75 Visit per day from Twitter. . . Thanks for mentioning me Nishant. Best of Luck.

    • Hi Ravi Verma,
      I think most of new and some old blogger doing this, that’s why I wrote this post to motivate those who are doing what I was doing…
      Thanks for sharing your experience..
      How much traffic you get from twitter daily?

  4. These days m lil bit busy,so unable to update myblog regularly.,,, but most of traffic m getting is refferal which comes from twitter and other social website… :)

  5. Hey Nishant, Thanks for sharing the multiple benefits which we could get from Twitter.

  6. Nishant,

    Great actionable tips! I’m an active user of JustRetweet and I get alot of addition traffic from there but I’ve never used commun.it before. It looks like a neat organized platform.
    Using twitter as a source of traffic takes time and patience, but once the momentum starts it’s basically on autopilot.

    Thanks Again!

    • Just Retweet is an awesome service, I won a giveaway on Skyhitblog.com, and after that I start using Just retweet, it driving traffic and retweets.

      And I agree with you Twitter needs time, you have to be active for a long time to get regular returns from twitter.
      But once you start getting traffic you will find twitter is best from all other Social Sites.

      Thanks for sharing your Experience in Comments!

  7. At first, I also thought that twitter is useless. But when I started using JustRetweet and Hootsuite, Twitter starts generating some traffic for me.
    Hootsuite really a good tool to manage twitter account effectively. It is better than the normal homepage of twitter.
    At last, Thank you for nice sharing. I wasn’t aware about @mention. I will try it out.

  8. The most important trick which you have shared in this post is #hashtag and sharing and mentioning other users.

  9. Over the years, I’ve grown to really love social media – it’s a fantastic idea and tool that can help create powerful relationships, generate amazing leads, and really help with your overall online efforts. We’ve just run into a small problem over the years – social media is, quiet literally, becoming unsocial media.

    If you take a look, for example, at most of the tweets on Twitter, you’ll likely find that the majority are being scheduled and sent out. Ping services and scripts send the majority of tweets – not real people. There’s far less connection to others now than before. Social Media is becoming a wasteland of link spamming and blind hope, really.

    Thus, it is extremely important to do two things – share valuable content (not just links, messages are meant to be shared), and make connections with others. Reach out to people. Talk to them.

    Great post, keep up the great work!

  10. Nice post @Nishant. I will follow you tips :)

  11. Good traffic from twitter but i am getting very less traffic from the twitter and also the reason is i am not active on twitter but will try to follow you.

  12. Hi Nishant,

    I’m here from Amit Shaw’s post and find your blog really very interesting.

    I’m totally new to twitter and use it just to tweet, not very well versed with the insights.

    Your post has kept me focussed till the last line and now feel that I need to adopt twitter as another social media platform.

    Thanks for sharing these.

  13. Start conversation with the fellow bloggers and appreciate their work by RT at regular intervals.

    Share some great post once in a day or at-least use “twitterfeed” to pull out the tweets from your favorite blogs. :)

  14. Great post dude. Nice tips. One more tip that is worth mentioning is that we have to be active on twitter. This incident happened to me. When I stopped blogging and working on internet for an year previously, later after I resumed, I lost lot of trustworthy contacts. So being active on twitter is important.

  15. Thanks for the shout out Nishant, glad to know you learned something from me about Twitter. Keep up the awesome work on Twitter, It can be really useful and beneficial for you and your blog.

  16. Twitter is great platform for sharing unique contents. People who failed in twitter is because they are totally interested in Facebook with friends only, we have option to link Facebook with twitter and Twitter with Facebook so we can use any one platform and get most traffic from Twitter also while posting on Facebook …

  17. Thanks for this. I’m just starting up with a new blog and had totally forgotten about Twitter. Need to get on it – thanks for the reminder!

  18. Hello Nishant bro,
    I was using twitter but unaware of its proper use yet. This article is little old now, but seems very helpful in my blogging career as I was unaware of any of the above mentioned tips yet. Thanks for sharing :-)

  19. hii nishant

    thanks a lot for sharing these tips… it will be definitely helpful for my blog
