3) Make your Bio interesting and engaging. Include keywords.

4) Did you know your Bio supports clickable hyperlinks, account names and hashtags? Add them if appropriate.

5) Give your profile and header photo files a SEO friendly name eg the name of your business.

6) Create a strong unique password for Twitter (and everywhere for that matter). See previous article – ‘How to change your Twitter and LinkedIn passwords‘.

7) Don’t forget to add your website address to the website field. Setting/Profile/Website.

8) Use Discover/Activity to see who people you follow are following. Handy for getting useful suggestions for you to follow.

9) Regularly change your profile pic to keep your profile fresh.

10) Use ‘https’ for improved security. Go to Settings and check the box next to “Always use HTTPS”.
