Repeat Your Tweets

                           http://thesocialmediaguide.com.au/
                                                                                      4
Guy Kawasaki uses the strategy of repeating his tweets.

From his blog,

Tip 9: Repeat your tweets. Try this experiment: take your most interesting tweets (as
measured by how many people retweet them, perhaps) and post them again three times,
eight to twelve hours apart. I used to think that people would complain about repeating
tweets, but I’ve never had a complaint. My theory is that the volume of tweets is so high
and most people check in at about the same time every day, so people don’t notice repeat
tweets.




Obviously you don’t want to do this too much as it could border on spamming.

If you publish a new blog post for example.. you could schedule your tweets using a
Twitter client like Hootsuite, so they’re sent out,

      Once every 6 hours – 4 times in a 24 hour period, or
      Once every 8 hours – 3 times in a 24 hour period
