140 Things To Discover On Twitter

Welcome back 🙂 , I have been around twitter for almost a year and a half,  and  the word “Discover” on twitter will not only take me but you also very far. Previously I discovered A to Z  Twitter accounts and  now  140 things which you must yourself discover while residing on Twitter. 🙂

We always try to ask ourselves , “why are you using twitter?” , answer comes  out from the bottom of our heart ; ” Because you love your followers and to discover something new” ,  Yes you heard it  right ;).  We are here to discover something new , so that helps not only us but also our followers. So today I am going to list out all the possibilities of discovering on Twitter :

  1. Yours and others thoughts and ideas
  2. Yours and others thoughts and ideasYour Twitter timeline consists of various thoughts and ideas shared by your followers. Make sure you also tweet and gain some attention from your followers. This way you will not only create your presence but also come across few thoughts and ideas of which you would love to tweet. 🙂

  3. Watch how people react to your thoughts and ideas
  4. Watch how people react to your thoughts and ideas
    “An IDEA can change your life” -IDEA Cellular. Whenever any idea pops out in your mind, you are always excited to receive the  feedback and opinions about it.  For better feedback, you must tweet it and let your followers decide and tell you more about your ideas and thoughts. Remember every idea is a joke until it is achieved. 🙂

  5. Share quotes, words of wisdom
  6. Share quotes, words of wisdom
    Quotes and words of wisdom are always there on your timeline, if you’re following the right person.

  7. Share a short poem
  8. Some people also like poem or poetry, and its quite challenging to make it less than 140chars, I did that too, and I called it short poem. Or you can also tweet a haiku(a traditional unrhymed short poetry, common among the japanese).

  9. Be inspired/ Be the inspiration
  10. From every tweet you can always be inspired by it, or even you are the source of inspiration, from what you have tweeted.

  11. Engage with others
  12. Engaging is the key to build a relationship, by that you are socializing with your followers and those you’ve followed.

  13. Send out greetings
  14. Send Out GreetingsA Good Morning, Good Afternoon and Good Night is always there, greeted by some people with a bunch of people names or just a tweet. We’re in different part of the world so, someone’s Morning could be others Good night, and that will make us realize other people’s time zone.

  15. Build Relationship or Friendship
  16. Build Relationship or Friendship
    Once you are engaged with some people, you will automatically start building a relationship/friendship; I have so many good friends around twitter, and even though we’re far apart, but I feel like we’ve known each other as we’ve met before.

  17. Support each other

  18. Whenever friends of mine need my support to vote or RT, I will be there to support them, which are what friends are for, right? ;).

    But still they need to use the magic password; “please” 🙂 it’s about an attitude after all.

  19. Teasing your friends

  20. I like to tease my friend, mostly they know that I’m only joking, that’s one of from so many ways to get connected and enjoying a conversation.

  21. Meet new people around the world

  22. Surely we’ll meet new people everyday from around the world, either from RT’s or from search result.

  23. Get a new friend everyday
  24. Get a new friend everydayOnce we are engaged in a conversation, we’ll get little bit to know each other and I think that’s a start towards a lifetime friendship. 🙂

  27. Start or join an online club
  28. Start or join an online clubWhen some people get to know each other and fall into some discussion and feels like we have something in common, they will start a club with a group of people, I have it one named #coffeeclub and we also have a blog together.

  29. Get to know who’s your real friend
  30. Get to know who's your real friendWith day by day connection, chat and everything, mostly we’ll get to know who’s the real friend?, for me those who understand my jokes, and support me when I need it the most.

  31. Get to know whom to trust
  32. Get to know whom to trustTrust is not easy to gain in online world, some people will fall to help others, but in return, turns out get in trouble, and I’m sure there’s a lesson behind that, and also we get to know that person can not be trusted.

  33. Get addicted and notice who’s more addicted to twitter
  34. Twitter addictTwitter is so addictive, it feels like I need to observe who’s RTing my tweets or who’s replying me or DM’s me after my last tweet, so whenever there’s a possible way to tweet, I’ll be tweeting.

  35. Chat privately on limited char of DM
  36. DM - Private ChatDM (Direct Message) is a private way to chat on twitter, but it is also limited to 140 characters, the art of using it is to multiply the DM or you can just move to private email after.

  37. Get an Auto DM
  38. Auto DMAuto DM is crazy, it’s whenever you follow someone, and they’ll send you an auto DM thanking you for the follow and give you links to their private blog or marketing site. Personally I don’t like auto DM, it is less personal and sounds weird if you followed back that person after they followed you first, and yet they thanking you for the follow like their follow was never happened.

  39. Spam by others through tweet or DM
  40. Beware of SpamOther than that, there are also spam tweets or DM’s that ask you to join any wars, quizzes, or a porn link. So you should be careful from these.

  41. Followed by spam and bots

  43. Get to know that your teeth need to be whitened
  44. Teeth Whitening Spam TweetThis is the famous spam tweet ever, where they tweet on how to get your teeth whitened, its annoying, unless you want to get your teeth whitened 🙂

  45. Be creative in or less than 140 chars
