9 Ways to Cram More Words Per Tweets

Best Practices for Short Tweets

Courtesy of Pardot, here are nine tips on how to squeeze more words (or more meaning) into your 140-character tweets.

1. Use Thsrs (http://www.ironicsans.com/thsrs) to find shorter synonyms for long words you want to use. — Click to Retweet #1

2. Don’t use the word “and.” Just substitute symbols like & or + to save 2 characters. — Click to Retweet #2

3. Get rid of unnecessary pronouns and articles, like the words “that” and “the.” — Click to Retweet #3

4. Find the best link shortener out there. Bit.ly is a good choice. — Click to Retweet #4

5. Substitute numbers for words.Click to Retweet #5

6. Use contractions whenever possible. — Click to Retweet #6

7. Drop vowels from words as long as the word still makes sense. — Click to Retweet #7

8. Use common abbreviations. While they’re not always pretty, substituting “w/” for “with” can save you 2 characters. “Retweet” can easily become “RT,” and “by the way” is often shortened to just “btw.” — Click to Retweet #8

9. Use expanded images. A picture is worth 10,000 words. Tweets with expanded images receive 18% more clicks, 89% more favorites, and 150% more retweets than those without. — Click to Retweet #9
