The Twitter bio is one of the most important parts of the account. A lot of thought needs to be put in while writing it. It needs to be well written, with an aim and it needs to reflect your brand.

Would you like to embed your tweets on your website or blog?
A great way to place tweets on websites or blogs, is by embedding them. Embedding them is a lot better than just placing a screenshot or an image of a tweet, as you when you embed them, people will be able to see the number of times the tweet has been retweeted and made favourite.
People can also interact with this tweet directly from your website. They can retweet it, favourite it and reply to it. They can also follow the creator of the tweet, as a follow button appears on the embedded tweet. The only disadvantage is that if the original tweet gets deleted, so does the embedded tweet.
As the advantages outweigh the single disadvantage, the next time you want to add a tweet to your website, just embed it. It looks way better and more real than just placing an image or screenshot.
To make it easy for you to embed tweets on your websites and blogs, I have written a quick guide below. Check it out…

Are you setting up a new Twitter profile?
One of the key components of your Twitter profile is your name and by that I mean the handle which has the name after the “@”. You need to pick a good Twitter name which can help promote your brand and make it easy for you to be found on Twitter. You shouldn’t just look for your favourite option and then, if that’s not available, simply choose the one that Twitter suggests.
A good Twitter name can help you promote your brand, make it easy for you to be found and will make you appear more genuine.
So if you want to learn how to choose the perfect Twitter name, take all six points below into consideration:-
1. Use a relevant name:
Your Twitter name should be relevant to your name or your company’s name. This way people can find your profile easily, not only because this name will be displayed on your profile, but also on your Twitter URL. Your Twitter URL is usually http://twitter.com/yourtwittername. So the next time someone searches for your company or for you they will easily find your Twitter profile. If your Twitter name is something completely different from your real name it could make it hard for people to find you.
An example of a good Twitter name is HubSpot’s Twitter name. It’s @HubSpot – exactly the same name as their company.
