  • Don’t just promote yourself :  Keep in mind that people will love to  share your status or tweets if it  points to some interesting and useful  content, even if it is not your’s
  • Use Hash Tags in your status updates :-  These hash tags works as meta tags and meta description for people  searching  tweets. For example: If you use a hash tag #blogging in your  tweet it means  that your tweet is related to blogging, and twitter  searching engines will  easily point out your tweet when ever some one  will search “blogging” on  twitter or any other twitter search engines.
  • Post status on peak timings :-  Update  your status on such time when most of your existing followers are online. It  will increase the chances of your content being liked and  shared. Most people  are online between 9 a.m to 12 p.m. & 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
