A group of people having a friendly conference. One person stands in the front speaking to the group seated around a large table. Beside the speaker is a white board covered with drawings and text that reads social media. On the table are beverages in to-go cups; water bottles; electronic devices; writing supplies.

It’s hard to create content when your creative juices just aren’t flowing.

But how would you like a few more suggestions to go along with that already amazing list?

In this post, you’ll learn a few more easy-to-create tweets that you can share with your Twitter community. After all, creating great content doesn’t have to be stressful! You just need the right ideas to get the ball rolling. So, let’s dive in!

7 More Things to Tweet When You’re Short on Ideas

Whenever you’re struggling to come up with ideas for what to post on Twitter, just turn to this list for a little inspiration. It’s sure to help you create tons of amazing tweets.

1. Use Threads to Post a Tutorial

Want to teach your audience how to do something? Twitter can be a great place to do that! While most people turn to their blog or their YouTube channel to share a tutorial, it can still be done in a series of tweets. That’s where Twitter threads come in handy since your string of tweets will be connected to one another and easy to follow.

Use Twitter’s 280 characters to write succinct steps that are easy for people to comprehend. If you want to take it a step further, consider adding videos for additional help. When it comes to things to tweet, tutorials are so valuable. Not only do they provide great information, but people will be more inclined to share them with their audience. That’s a win-win for you since you’ll see more impressions and engagement.

2. Post a Poll to Get Community Feedback

If you want an easy way to learn more about your Twitter friends, post a poll. You can use this feature for business purposes if you’d like. For example, it can be a great way to gauge interest in an idea you have for an upcoming product or service. You can also ask about topics they’d like you to cover on your blog, YouTube channel, or podcast. Their feedback makes a huge difference, so listen to what they have to say.

But you can also just have fun with the polls you share. Ask about their favorite foods, the book genre they enjoy the most or whatever else. It’s the perfect way to spark a spontaneous conversation with your community. It also reminds people that you’re more than just the brand you’re building online. And you get to learn some fun facts about everyone.

3. Share Progress on a Personal Goal

It doesn’t have to be all business, all the time on your Twitter page. Sometimes the best things to tweet are those that are relatable. And there’s nothing more relatable than talking about the personal goals you’re working toward. It could be a health and wellness goal, such as going on daily walks or meditating every morning. Or perhaps you have a goal to read at least one book every month. Whatever it is, use Twitter to hold yourself accountable.

Share a personal goal you have with your Twitter community. Then, keep them updated by sharing progress reports every so often. Who knows, you might inspire others to join you! Plus, there’s nothing quite like the motivation that comes from having your online community cheer you on every step of the way. You wouldn’t want to let them down, would you?

4. Rave About an Experience With a Brand

It often seems like we’re more inclined to take to social media when we want to talk about negative experiences we’ve had with a brand. However, we shouldn’t just use these platforms to complain. Social media is a fantastic place to rave about the businesses that have gone above and beyond to provide a great product or service.

So, when’s the last time you shared some kind words about your favorites? If it’s been a while, let’s change that. One of the easiest things to tweet is a supportive message in favor of the brands you love the most. It could be software that you rely on daily at work. A coach who has made a difference in your life. Or even a message to a podcaster you can’t get enough of. Either way, spread the love. They’re sure to appreciate it. And your community will have the opportunity to check them out.

5. Educate With Interesting Statistics

No matter what field you’re in, there’s probably some interesting statistics online that you can share with your community. Stats are great things to tweet because they’re educational, they’re shareable, and they start conversations. A quick Google search can yield some relevant data that you can then share with your community.

For example, I might be inclined to share statistics related to Twitter. Did you know that 48% of people use Twitter to get the latest news or for entertainment purposes? If I shared that with my community, they may consider their current Twitter strategy and how they can adapt their content to meet those needs.

6. Use Voice Tweets to Share a Short Story

Sometimes Twitter’s character limit can be rather, well, limiting. Luckily, there are ways around it if you have something to share that goes beyond 280 characters. You could film a video or make a series of tweets via a Twitter thread. But another option is to use Twitter’s voice tweet feature and tell a little story that way. Just keep in mind that you only have two minutes and 20 seconds to get your point across. So, it’s best for stories that are short and sweet!

7. Repurpose Existing Content Into Tweets

When coming up with things to tweet, it doesn’t always have to be original content. You can turn to your archives for some fresh and exciting ideas. For instance, why not visit your blog, YouTube channel, or podcast to find topics that are still relevant to your audience? Then, you can take one of those pieces of content and pull quotes to turn into tweets. You can easily make a graphic in Canva to go along with the tweet.

Alternatively, you can summarize an existing piece of content in a Twitter thread, video, or voice tweet. This way, you don’t need to come up with something entirely new. You can take content you’ve already created, repurpose it, and get it in front of an audience that might not have seen it otherwise.
