When you’re stuck for content to Tweet, here are ten ideas that might spark some creative content while increasing engagement with followers.

  1. Share posts from influencers. But more importantly, add your own comment. For example, here’s a post from HubSpot, “Holiday campaigns only run for a certain period of time. Don’t miss out by starting late: ly/H01qBtX0.” I would add/change this to my own spin, “Are you on the naughty or nice list? Holiday #MarketingCampaign to do’s now. hubs.ly/H01qBtX0 @HubSpot”.
  2. Inspirational quotes are great to retweets. Be sure to use the hashtag #InspirationalQuote or #QuoteOfTheDay.
  3. Recognize Tweeps by giving them a shout out, such as “Woot! Thx 4 the Twitter luv this week. [list several handles]”
  4. Post a trivia question, using the hashtag #TwitterTrivia. Here’s an example post from Auburn University (@AuburnCampusRec) @ Here’s today’s #TwitterTrivia! How long did the very first Thanksgiving meal last?” Remember to come back and post the answer and acknowledge those who got it right the quickest.
  5. Link to old, but relevant blog posts. Do this by reviewing annual website analytics to see what the top blog articles were for the year.
  6. Search for questions being asked in your industry or niche. Then answer them. Use Twitter’s search tool to help you find topics by hashtag.
  7. Share your favorite website and why you love it.
  8. Link to a podcast, Ted Talk, or video that you found inspirational and why.
  9. Post information about upcoming events that might be relevant to your followers.
  10. Share trending topic/current event news.

Here’s a thought, share this blog post! Here’s a tweet you can use:
