I’ve written so many articles about using Twitter for Social Networking and I have mentioned briefly about the bio on your Twitter profile, so now, I thought it was about time I went into this a bit more.

Learning More About Why Your Twitter Bio is Important

Your Twitter bio is possible one of the most important things that people will check when they view your Twitter page and leaving this blank is a complete No No! And yet again filling it with spammy words just to get followers is another NO NO, as most tweeters will know what your doing it..

Since originally writing this article I have updated it and extended it a little with some more useful tips

Twitter Bio - Is more important than you may realiseSo what sort of information should you put in your Twitter bio, well, make it informative, but not personal.

Show what you do and a few of the things you like, also added your URL into the bio, this helps when your Twitter bio is listed on other sites that may not mention your URL. What you shouldn’t be putting is things like:

Website SEO, blogging tips, thesis, blogs, blog design

This is just spammy and it shows that the tweeter knows that people will search through the bio looking for those keywords to follow them, yes it is OK to add a few keywords, but add them in a sentence, not just a list of words!

Example: I’m an author that writes about the ins and outs of the world of fiction and fact.

If you want people to follow you on twitter show them that you are worth their time and let them see from your bio that you are not just another one of those bots that are only there for the numbers. By showing that you’re a human being with a well formed and interesting Twitter Bio people will have an inkling of your Twitter streams content.

Try the following tips in your Twitter Bio

  1. Tell Tweeters what you do
  2. Show a side of your personality
  3. Add something a little personal, but not something no one should know!
  4. Never include politics, religion or sexuality
  5. Have fun, but be informative and most of all be HUMAN

So there you have it a few little tips, that I hope will help.
