The art of live-tweeting 


Live-tweeting is a great way to maximize your social media impact and distinguish yourself from other reporters and twitter users. Because you’re actually on the ground where the action is happening, you can provide a perspective that few can. 

It’s important to use that advantage as best you can. 

Take pictures 

Pictures are one of the easiest ways to set the scene and show people what’s going on. It doesn’t take a lot of effort and can really enhance your live-tweeting. 

Use direct quotes 

Direct quotes are a great way to inject another voice into your tweets. Just make sure you don’t incorrectly quote someone, even if it’s just on Twitter. And make sure names are spelled right! 

Don’t tweet too much 

I’ve been guilty of this. Even though you make think people are hanging on your every tweet, you may just be clogging up people’s timelines. Keep the tweets short and succinct, and only tweet things that are actually interesting and relevant.

    I’ve never really known anything about live tweeting, so this is actually really helpful! I never thought of Tweeting too much as being a problem.

    I personally have a fear of live tweeting. I feel like there’s a lot of room to make grammar and spelling mistakes when you’re on the spot. Live tweeting is something I want to practice more. Thanks for the tips!
