How to tweet like professional?
Follow this rules, and your followers will appreciate it ;) 
Connect this with twitter strategy and you will for sure get more engagement.

How to tweet in more professional way? Follow this 7 rules and you will see more engagement on your twitter account! Get more clickable twitter tweets.

1. Follow language rules

Don’t use too much shortcuts. That looks crappy! To be a professional you need to write grammar correctly. Read your tweet again and check if it's easy to understand. Don't use sophisticated or rare words, your followers from other countries might not understand this.

2. Don't use more than 3 #hashtags in tweet

When you #use #a #lot #of #tags it's hard to read your tweet and people are unlikely to retweet your tweets. For the best effect use 2 hashtags! It was proven that tweets with 2 hashtags are more clickable than with any other number of hashtags.

3. Check before you tweet

Check your grammar misspellings, check if you don't left too much space and try out your links. What if your link drives to another page you wanted? Don't let your tweets look like written after hard party.

4. Tag @username when you want to interact

It's added automatically when you respond, but sometimes you want to write to somebody without responding. Tag them @username in front and he will get notification and this tweet will be only visible for you, user you called and anybody else who follows you both. The same when you tag more people - anybody who follows you and all mentioned people will see that, and of course tagged people, even when they don't follow each others.  Add something in front and then @username when you want everybody to see it.  Also, you can use 'via' or 'by'@username to show tweet source.

5. Use RT @username and comment + RT @username tag

If you didn't used retweet button, Retweet tag is not included. It's nice to notify retweeted person that you used his tweet. Use 'RT @username' or 'comment + RT @username' when you retweeting.

6. Use links and images

It's proven that tweets with links inside are more clickable and provides more engagement. You can use images in your tweet too. Use link shortener like bit.ly or goo.gl to shorten long links and to measure clicks!

7. Don't share only headings

Don't just share article headings in your tweets. Say it in your own words and be creative! You can try multiple tweets with the same link commented in other words and measure clicks to see which phrase works better.

ADDITIONAL TIP: Don't only share links and retweet others. Write sometimes your own thoughts and engage with others!

Enjoy this infographic and spread the word - share!
