[INFOGRAPHIC] A Dr. Seuss Inspired Guide to Twitter

Since the release of  Twitter in 2006, use of the social network on has skyrocketed to over 500 million tweets per day and continues to grow. Twitter is now one of the top contributors of traffic for bloggers and brands. A recent study shows that 49% of monthly Twitter users follow brands or companies, compared to just 16% of social network users overall. So how can you increase the likelihood that your tweets get shared and clicked on?

Here’s a handy infographic tilted A Dr. Seuss Inspired Guide to Twitter from the hootsuite team that proposes some tips to successfully marketing on Twitter.

Some key takeaways are:

Let Tweets Breathe: If you send Tweets too much, you’ll risk looking like spam.

Pay Attention To Trends: Don’t ignore what people like.

You Don’t Need All 14o Characters: Short tweets make it easier for people to share your story.

What are the business benefits of being the #1 trending topic on Twitter?

For the last few months, BestBuzz has been participating in #PrintChat. This Tweetchat happens every Wednesday at 3 PM Central. It is hosted by Deborah Corn from Print Media Center and is attended by people who want to discuss and debate all things in the printing industry. BestBuzz is not a printing company, but we attend #PrintChat because we value the printing industry for our social media amplification platform. Simply put, BestBuzz relies on print to connect smartphone users from creative and innovative print to a rewarding digital experience.

Will we keep #PrintChat a trending topic?

Last week, BestBuzz was given the opportunity to host #PrintChat. This was such an honor and not a responsibility taken lightly by BestBuzz tweeter, and author of this blog, yours truly, Ondine Bult. #PrintChat has regularly been a trending topic (TT) on Twitter and has even been known to hit the #1 trending topic spot.

I must admit, I was very nervous before the chat. Deb, Sandy Hubbard and Marco Morales as well as all the other “PrintChatters” always have such a wonderful lively #PrintChat, I hoped my questions for the community would be up to par.

Thankfully, everyone grabbed the topic by the tweetchat horns and gave us some wonderful insights in to how print can be used to drive dynamic interactive multi-media campaigns. (You can see the entire Tweetchat here on Storify.)

How did we do?

#PrintChat is always a lively Tweetchat and this week proved to be no exception. When the hour was up Marco Morales delivered the statistics report from @hashtracking.
