- tips and tricks

Twitter: quick checklist
• 1 email account = 1 Twitter profile
• Name max 50 characters
• Username (beginning with @) max 15 characters
• Make sure you add a profile picture and a description about yourself in the bio
• Hashtag = topic of the tweet: #robotics #research #IoT #Tampere3.
It also works as a clickable search word
• Create a hashtag for your project and your event!
• Remember: can’t own it, can’t control it
• Mention other accounts, e.g. @SuomenAkatemia @TampereUniTech
-> they will be notified, and might react by liking or sharing
• If the tweet begins with @username = reply. The tweet does not show up in the
normal timeline and all your followers will not see it.

Twitter
Help Center
• Retweet (RT) = sharing the tweet to your followers as it is
• RT with comment = you can add your own comment to the RT (recommended!)
• Add pictures! (max 4 pcs) You can also use mentions @ in the picture
• Mention @TampereUniTech if relevant and if there is space
• Create your own lists or subscribe to a list. Researchers and other TUT staff are
collected in TUT Twitter list. Lists can be public or private.
• A link always takes up 23 characters
• Any punctuation mark will cut the hashtag or username (#Tampere-based,
@TampereUniTech’s)
• If you want to have a private conversation, use Direct Message
• You can block unwanted followers
• Twitter already mastered? Next step Tweetdeck
