Top 10 Tweets: Am I TwitterFamous Yet?

Download PDF

Tweeting with the goal of being engaging and gaining impressions is hard. Internet celebrities should get a medal for coming up with content that people like to share. While I haven’t conquered the internet with my wit or shameless selfies, I have put forth a few little gems that either got people laughing or thinking.

September to the first week of December is the timeframe that I used to determine which tweets would be considered for the top ten list. I used Twitter analytics to help me curate the best ten tweets based on impressions (how many views the tweet got) and engagements (mentions, retweets, likes, participating in a poll etc.). The chart below each tweet outlines the kinds of engagements the content received.

The tweets are organized based on how proud I am of them and how many impressions they received. In a few cases the content was more engaged with but had a smaller number of impressions, I ranked those based on if I thought the engagements or the impressions were more important. The list is ordered such that the best tweets are at the top and the (still awesome but) least impressive are at the bottom.

Without further delay, in true award show fashion here are the winners:


1. “Party In Your Mouth”

3. “Emoji Madness” 

I think the copy is what is most fun in this tweet. It compares something fun and silly (emojis) with something not so fun (seizures). The great part is that it’s so unexpected.

4. “Be Yourself” 

This tweet is relatable. I think that we have all had an experience where our name has been used to promote something we didn’t believe in. I got Twitter hacked and this was my response.

5.  “Self Promotion” 

I used Twitter’s Ad Card feature to promote myself, I did’t want to pay for the ads so I took screenshot and edited it to look like a Twitter card and posted it with quirky copy.

Again, I used twitter to promote the Viral Content Challenge. This time I posted the link to the Pinterest board where the content lives.

Still in connection with the Viral Content Challenge I tweeted the link to my content on my pin board rather than the classes’ in hopes of gaining more engagements for both my meme and my other Pinterest content.
