The easiest and best way is to use hashtags. By adding # in front of any word you want to share, you add your tweet to a unique channel for that word, letting thousands of potential visitors see it.
Hey WryLit, care to explain that in a little more detail? I don't know hashtags from sales tags. Where do you use them, in twitter and give an example. I would love to know this one.
Okay, I looked it up, I have no idea why I try to make stuff complicated. Duh! They then are just like tags other places, giving readers search fodder. I will start using them now. Thanks for the info WryLit.
You're welcome. And a hashtag is basically that - a word with a hash sign written in front. Once you tweet it, it will turn into a link.
This #sentence has #three hashtag #channels in it.
Do you get a lot of traffic from this? I shared my two first hubs without hash tags and only got 3 visitors from it - quit doing it.
Well if you've got no followers, who's going to see your tweets?
With hash tags you can share your tweets with ANYONE who is interested in that topic, whether they're your follower or not.
Okay now I'm starting to get it a bit more! But how long are these things you tweet? Is it an entire hub or just the link to that hub? Keep in mine I've never used this service before!
You tweet just only the link to your hub, OK?
Twitter messages are limited to I think 140 characters, so you're definitely just tweeting links to the hubs, not the actual hubs themselves.
I never used Twitter much because I thought only my followers could see my tweets.
That's pretty awesome WryLilt, thank you.
Link your hubs to your twitter account. Then, as you gain followers, when you create new hubs you can tweet about it on twitter and all those people will get a notice about it.

Earlier I used to hit the tweet button as soon as I published a new Hub no matter what time it was. Not any more. I realized that timing is the key on Twitter. If you tweet in the night when most of your followers are asleep or early in the morning when they are busy with their motions your tweets...

I've had twitter for a while. I find it very spammy, so don't really read it. I post my hubs there & the occasional article I like. I have approx 300 followers (many are writers), yet in my traffic, I have very rarely had a visitor from twitter. Do the backlinks count for...

Hello. I've been researching Twitter recently but a lot of the information I've found seems to be dated several years ago already so I'd like to ask for some recent information. Is Twitter still a good site for backlinks and traffic? Is it really effective? Does it work?How many times a day should...

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.
