6 Ways To Make The Most Of Twitter’s 140 Characters
- Substitute letters and symbols for words: "Will I C U @ 2morrow's gig?"
- Remove unneeded words: "The band just finished in the studio. We really love the new songs. They rock."
- Use links to draw fans to other content, but shorten URLs using bit.ly or other free tools.
- Forget what your English teacher told you and use only one or no spaces at the end of sentences.
- Use contractions like "I'm" or "I'll".
- Don't forget that you're talking to your friends. They know who the Tweet came from and so there is no need to type out your full name. "I" or "we" are shorter and more personal
