Cooper explains how to use inline Twitter images to your advantage in her article, “How Twitter’s new expanded images increase clicks, retweets and favorites.”

Hubspot’s Jay Acunzo reveals a strategy for ensuring your Tweets are visible to all your followers: Do not start your Tweet with an “@” sign because it will be visible only to that user and people who follower that user.

  • I find so many brands and people I follow still start their tweets with the “@” symbol. You’d think they would know by now……especially big brands. Is it just laziness when here responding/mentioning another person or are they specifically doing it so then only mutual followers see the tweet?

  • Thanks for your comment, Trent. I think a lot of people just don’t realize that tweets work this way. I can’t imagine why they’d continue to do it if they knew. But I could be wrong!

  • I learned a tip some time back that makes sure others see your tweets too. Put a dot before the @ in a tweet. Seems to work, when one remembers to use it. Merry Christmas to the Blogging Bistro Team!

  • Interesting, Vatsala! That’s a subtle, non-intrusive way to add a character before the @, which means you could put it at the beginning of your tweet (after the .) and it would then show up to all in your Twitter feed. Merry Christmas to you, too!
