How To Write A Quality Bio On Twitter

A quality Twitter profile is a great way to make a first impression. The Bio section is a text-based section of the user’s Twitter profile that is constrained to 140 characters. Enhance your connections on the social media network by providing text that catches the eyes of users and persuades them to click the “follow” button to connect further with you.

A quality Twitter profile is a great way to make a first impression. The Bio section is a text-based section of the user’s Twitter profile that is constrained to 140 characters. Enhance your connections on the social media network by providing text that catches the eyes of users and persuades them to click the “follow” button to connect further with you.

The Intention

Think about why you originally joined Twitter. Was the motive professional, personal, or a combination of both needs? The answer will help determine what information to include in your bio.

For example, do you want to increase sales of your latest e-book using Twitter? If so, include the title and synopsis of the book within your bio section. Be relevant to what you wish to promote using the online platform. Users who enjoy reading about authors and literary trends will be interested in your bio. A quality connection is created and you increase the chances of acquiring a new buyer for your novel.

If your goal is personal rather than professional, include your interests. What type of people do you want to connect with? If you like poetry, and want to read haikus and poems online, then add your interest in poetry to the bio. The users who connect with you will likely have a passion for reading and writing poetry as well. The shared interest increases your chances of making relationships of interest.

The Links

Include relevant links along with the text. If you have a blog or website you wish to promote, include the link to the site in your Twitter bio.

Users, who read your tweets and are interested in the content, can easily connect with you further by way of the posted links. As well, some users will investigate your link before choosing to follow you on Twitter as they want to ensure you are a quality person to connect with online.

The text and link should relate to one another. If your blog is photography-based, for example, include the blog title in your bio and a brief statement about the photos.

The Wording

Self-promote but do not be needy when writing your Twitter bio. While you want to arouse interest in your profile and encourage users to follow you and read your tweets, you do not want to be too forceful.

State your achievements but do not sell yourself short. Write that you are an award-winning author but not that you have to sell forty more books by Friday. Be confident in your bio.

Make the details catchy in order to draw the eye of potential followers. Wording that is quirky and offbeat is more likely to stir attention than a dull bio. Do not include swearwords that may offend readers.

Ensure all words are spelt correctly and that grammar is correct. Do not miss out on a valuable social media connection because of the incorrect usage of a word within a sentence.

All information contained within the Twitter bio must be succinct like the twitter messages you create. Remember that first impressions are important and the bio helps create that impression. Be witty, confident, and information-based in your bio on Twitter. Following these tips will give you the greatest opportunity possible to create quality connections on Twitter and meet your original objectives.

Does having a real picture help with the Bio? Great tips! Thanks!

I need all the help I can get with Twitter. Thank you for the helpful tips. I tweeted this and Google Buzzed since I am out of votes.

Great topic and valuable information here. I particularly like the "wording" advice. Very impressive. Thanks much, I most appreciative of these guidelines you've posted. Voted ;-)

Great article and very helpful.

Good post Christy, I like it for promoting articles and minimal social reasons not including too much details

Thank-you everyone for the great comments! I really appreciate the support.

Ranked #20 in Twitter

I hope my bio won't be dull and boring after this.

Hi Gerard, have confidence in your writing. Ask a colleague, friend, or family member for his or her opinion if you are not sure how your bio sounds. Take care.

Excellent tips. I totally agree with you. Great work again, Christy!
