Be repeatable and tweetable

Apply these techniques professional speakers use to encourage audiences to tweet about their presentations. Your messages will spread when you:

  • Ask for action. Tell people that you want them to share your message with others.
  • Speak in bites. Brief messages are easier to remember and repeat. You can talk at length about an important point; just summarize it too. Key: Keep summaries under 100 characters. That lets Twitter users add your username or a hashtag.
  • Be fresh. What you say doesn’t have to be new, as long as you say it in a new way.
  • Let it sink in. After delivering a key point, pause so listeners can absorb the information and, perhaps, jot down some notes.
