Twitter is used by many, for the sole reason that it is a very good marketing tool. Be it marketing a product or a website or a film, twitter can do it all! Not everyone is able to make the most of it. Twitter can reap maximum benefits only if the twitter user has the will and passion to succeed. This quality is very rare to find and is usually seen in Twitter Champions. These twitter users are the most influential lot, they are trendsetters and it would not be wrong to say that they control the way twitter is being used. But what does it take to be a twitter champion? A lot of hard work and a little bit of luck goes behind the making of a champion.
Twitter Champions have some really good characteristics, which make them successful. Some of the characteristics that I have noticed in this brief span of time I have used twitter are as follows:
1. Quality Comes First
The champions know that they are powerful, but with great power comes greater responsibility. Quality is the first and the foremost priority for every twitter champion. So they work hard to get quality tweets on board. Quality tweets ensure readability and also help in gaining heights in twitterverse.
2. Building Bonds
Public relations and good interpersonal skills are prerequisite qualities for a twitter champion. Twitter is all about making connections and building relationships, but the twitter champions take it to the next level. They make bonds with their followers, bonds which are cemented and unbreakable and bonds which are very valuable.
3. Being Human
Nobody wants to be flooded tweets which are just content. The twitter champions are not bots who just spew tweets about their products. They are the ones that respond, communicate and make a mark on our hearts. And for them it’s not all about me me, but about you too! They are conversationalists, they interact, engage and take interest in what you say and reply appropriately.
Matching up to the needs of a huge following is not very easy. It can take up all their time, the time which was meant for their job or other important work. They are “champs” because they are able to juggle through their work and still manage to be consistent on twitter. It is about making tough choices, prioritizing and being productive. It is the months of hard work that actually pays off in the end.
An important trait is being professional. Professionals are to the point and focused. In the same way, the twitter champions send tweets that are centered around their niche. This makes them look like specialists in their respective niche areas. ( For eg. @twitter_tips tweets centered around twitter tips and articles )
Seeing the same types of tweets, again and again can be a bit boring, but that is not the case with our twitter champions. They mix tweets like the bartender mixes drinks, and a little bit of entertainment to it. They jazz it up thoughtful quotes, add a pinch of humor and viola!, the twitter super drink is served.
7. Be Polite
They will not shout at you, even if you have shouted at them. They are very polite, and this the quality makes them even more follow worthy. (Because anger only spreads hatred, and being polite may help in spreading joy)
8. Connecting with Other Champs
Building a network of influential twitter users makes the network even more influential. That’s what the champions do, they join hands and tweet in harmony. They retweet each other’s tweets and hence multiply their audience.
