Welcome to this week’s social media tip.
Pinning a Tweet allows you to showcase your best content at the top of your profile page for as long as you’d like.
In the past Twitter typically only allowed viewers to see posts in a sequential timeline which meant that your most important or relevant content quickly got lost in the fast-moving Twitter stream.
To solve this issue Twitter now allows you to pin a tweet or keep it placed at the top of the newsfeed giving you more editorial control as to what a viewer will see first when visiting your page.
It’s super quick and easy to do. Follow the steps below to pin your first tweet.
1. Open up your Twitter Profile Page.
2. Choose a Tweet you would like to Pin. Select “Pin to your profile page”.
3. The Tweet will now automatically appear at the top of Page.
4. To remove a pinned tweet, simply click on the “unpin” option.
It’s a good idea to review your pinned tweets regularly to make sure you are sharing up-to-date posts. Out-dated pins will make your profile look out-dated too. To refresh your Twitter profile simply choose another tweet to pin. Twitter will ask you to confirm if you want to replace your current pinned tweet.
It couldn’t be easier to follow these steps and it’s something you should certainly do to highlight your accomplishments, share your latest news, and bring your viewers attention to the posts you want them to see first.
Here’s to your tweeting success!
