How to write great Twitter threads

If you’re not sure where to start with Twitter threads, we’ve got some best practices for you to keep in mind:

Have a clear objective and plan ahead

Before starting a Twitter thread, make sure that you have a clear objective you want to achieve that aligns with your content. This could be educating your audience, sharing a story, or providing a tutorial. 

Keep it relevant

When adding media to your Twitter threads, make sure it is relevant to the content you are sharing. Your media should support and enhance your message, rather than distract from it.

Keep it short and sweet

Twitter is all about brevity, so try to keep your tweets and the attached media short and sweet. Use short videos or GIFs that convey your message effectively in a matter of seconds. This will help keep your audience engaged and interested in your content.

Be creative

Experiment with different types of media, including images, videos, and GIFs, to see what resonates with your audience. Don’t be afraid to get creative with your content and try new things.

Use a conversational tone

Twitter is a social platform, so using a conversational tone when writing your thread can help you connect with your audience on a more personal level and encourage engagement.

Test and analyze 

As with any social media strategy, it’s essential to test and analyze your results. Try different types of media, and track your engagement rates with Loomly’s analytics to see what works best for your brand.
