Why do Hub-bers and Hub-bies not tweet each others posts more?
It seems to me that a great way of spreading a great hub is by tweeting - and yet I see so little of it done. Why?
Don't know the exact reason but may be most of us not attached our Twitter Account. Even I don't use tweeter so others may be like me who have Twitter but don't use at all.
Perhaps you need to expand your twitter following/followers more? Are you following several hubbers? Several hubbers also have 'hubber lists' on their Twitter profiles and this helps locate additional hubbers. I see quite a bit of sharing between hubbers on Twitter. Tweets and retweets alike. It is a good idea to include the person's @twitter name when you tweet. This way they will see your efforts and will usually return the favor. Careful with spamming though. You might lose your account and/or followers.
Also, if you simply tweet a link without any kind of description - followers won't see any type of hook or attraction. Again, only tweeting links comes across as spam and not a personal interest.
I use Twitter quite a bit to promote my own hubs as well as other's hubs when i find them interesting. The reason I limit myself in the amount of Tweets, is that you do not want to "spam" your followers with a bunch of Tweets to the same site and all. A Tweet here and there, spaced out over time, is most effective, and Tweeting on a "regular" basis is also go.
I think many do not use twitter. I do not use it to follow people nor do I enjoy its' layout. It is as simple as that.
people don't want to be known as spammers on the sites they belong to.
Well this is a great idea. I usually rate the interesting posts. But never thought of tweeting others hub. From now on I shall keep it in mind. Though I am unsure whether other hubbers will reciprocate it in the same way.
I don't tweet, twitter, nor twang. Just kidding. Seriously, I don't tweet and twitter and have no interest in ever doing so. I hope it doesn't affect my writing ability or my hub scores because even to "join in" nahhhh-not going there.

I have never Tweeted my articles and I feel as though that may be a problem. I know I can do better with views, but I just need to know where to post my links. I need to generate more organic backlinks and I am thinking that Twitter may be the place to go. Has it helped you with your views?Thanks!

First a disclaimer is in order.I broke the evergreen rule with this approach. I knew it going in and did it anyway. What the hell, sometimes rules are made to be broken. Sometimes a gamble pays off, often it doesn't. I do live in Las Vegas though so it is in my blood! Hubs should be on evergreen...

Why is there no longer an option to share Hubs on Twitter? It looks like it's been replaced with Flipboard, which seems like a weird choice.

What is the reason why we Tweet?I have been tweeting and had an epiphany! What do we tweet and re-tweet? What is the purpose of all of this madness? Are we really getting any traffic, or are we just babbling on-line? Who really sees all of these tweets?

I had a hub that was the #3 spot and without knowing I tweeted it to much now it is on like page 7 listed under username/twitter. Will google crawl this back up. I never imagined that would happen. I have stopped tweeting more than one time now. Thanks for any input or help.
