Twitter Expands Tweets to 280 Characters

Twitter is now a better value for clients.
Twitter is now a better value for clients.

Finally, Twitter expands tweet length from 140 to 280 characters – just this last week! And HootSuite finally allowed our writers to start using the longer word count.

We do a nice job with writing for Twitter for our clients, but 140 characters simply did not make the cost valuable to enough clients. Now with new expanded tweet length up from 140 to 280 characters, Twitter is looking very attractive for many businesses.

I have always like Twitter. I like the medium, interaction and ability to get a businesses customer service reps attention fast. Plus there’s simply no better way to know what is happening then to ask on Twitter. Donald Trump has made Twitter popular with business owners although I never recommend tweeting in the same fashion that he does.

We’ve been waiting for our Pro HootSuite version to allow us to write at the longer character count and just this week, we were able to make the shift.

With a longer tweet, look for the use of more images in profiles that typically did not work to create an nice looking interactive page.

If you need help with Twitter writing, now’s the time to take a look at our services just for Twitter.

We Do More When It Comes to Social Media

Nancy McCord
“Just Nancy” – My Point of View for Today.

We are different and truly focused on quality and content when it comes to social media writing.

Here’s how:

  1. We use only American writers.
  2. We use only college educated, mature professional writers.
  3. We hand select the background information for our team of 10 writers.
  4. We decide what keywords will be used in your hashtags when used.
  5. We have four social media installers, who load the content in our writer’s portal and schedule your updates.
  6. We have an master’s graduate proofread all your content after it has been installed in our writer’s portal before being published.

But our service does not stop there…

The day your update is to appear, we verify that it has published and republish it if the time was missed.

We will typically touch an update we write (even Twitter) 8 times from start to finish/publish. If you are looking for quality content, turn key operation, and an attention to detail from your social media writers and managers, we invite you to review our programs for Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+.

Get More Hearts on Twitter with This Strategy
Get More Hearts on Twitter Using My Strategy

Interestingly enough I have two twitter accounts, one for my business mccordweb and a personal one nancymccord. I have found that even though I feed the same content out to both accounts, I get many more hearts on my personal account.

For me, I post #AdWords Tips and #AdWords Trivia. I use my study information from my AdWords exams to reveal short little nuggets about AdWords from reports, studies, training materials, or my own knowledge.

In all cases I am linking to my own services page, but I am finding that followers will heart me and then retweet my post all repointing traffic to my own website service.

By taking this new strategic focus just this month, I have noticed how many more likes and shares I have been getting. I will be continuing to work this program to grow my fan base strategically in one of my own core services.

Do you need help creating a similar Twitter strategy for your own business? Check out our Twitter writing services today.

More Politicians Are Embracing the Web

Nancy McCord
Nancy McCord – Point of View for Today.

Donald Trump, love him or hate him, he has masterfully used social media to his benefit and forever changed the way politicians relate to the electorate.

But, not only are politicians moving to Twitter and Facebook as they seek votes, but some are even embracing Google AdWords to try to drive traffic to their election websites.

Glitzy websites with donate now buttons or click here to sign up for our email updates are standard fare for judges, congressmen, senators, and of course our presidential candidates. Never before have we seen a politician use Twitter to his ultimate benefit as Trump has. Rapid firing off tweets that carry his special brand of candor, make it clear that no ghost writer is writing Trump’s tweets. They are “All The Donald”.

Not every politician wants the high profile and electorate exchange that Trump has embraced, and not every politician has the sass and bad boy demeanor that Trump has embodied online, but for The Donald, it is certainly working.

For others in the political landscape using Google AdWords allows for strong, very targeted exposure that increases the chance that voters will see the message that they want to share and not the message of PACs or of that of other candidates. That’s especially important when negative campaigning is being used.

We are currently running one AdWords program for a Circuit Judge in a Midwest state and expect to see more politicians move onto the Web and into Google AdWords in the months to come.
