It was less than 6 months ago that I decided to fully start out on Twitter. I soon got sucked in to a fantastic environment of helpful and knowledgeable tweeps.

I was blogging for a while before. Vividly I applied some key lessons I learnt and my experience was that it worked extremely well on Twitter too.

The most important part was that it came naturally because I was already used to these techniques.

1.) Don’t Rant – Copy Counts

Fortunately the time when Twitter was a ranting tool you would use to put your thoughts out to no one and anyone is gone.

I like to see Twitter as a microblogging tool in the literal sense. Creating compelling copy that is both attractive to click through and carrying an honest and sincere message is key. Make your Tweets great.

What I means I that whenever I am reading a great article I would change the headline so it would suit my voice.

3 Steps to a Productive Life on Twitter as a Blogger Using Buffer

This is a guest post by Leo Widrich.

One of the most important things I discovered is to manage my time efficiently on Twitter. Otherwise I would spend hours and hours without getting anything else done.

Recently I have started to use Buffer, a super simple Twitter tool which helps you to breathe a little easier by keeping my followers posted all day long. It is very different from any existing Apps and makes my life online a little less complicated.

With Buffer you simply throw a few tweets into your Buffer and the App then schedules these tweets for you during the day – that’s it.

Now, let’s take a look at how Buffer works.

Step 1: Put Tweets in Your Buffer

Adding tweets to your Buffer is super simple. Simply write them into your tweet panel at your Buffer home account.

To make it even easier I suggest you install the right browser extension for you (Chrome, Firefox, Safari) so you can add tweets from any page you are one. Like this:
