Every one of us wish to see our post go viral on Twitter, don’t we? In the past, a viral tweet was just natural. A Twitter user will post something interesting and if the post is really very impressive, it will be garnering more responses and goes viral. Such viral tweets were relatively rare too.
Whereas in present, we see a lot of tweets going viral. Mainly because most Twitter handles that are trying to promote themselves or their product concentrate on going viral. They compose their tweet with the probability of their tweet going viral in mind.
You must be wondering if you ever can post a viral tweet. Well, you can definitely improve the chances of making your tweet go viral. How to do that? Here are a few things you can do to see your tweet hitting a home run.
Hop On the Viral Trend
Everyone loves engaging in a viral topic. Remember the viral “Black and Blue or White and Gold dress color tweet? This is one of the most famous tweets of all time on Twitter.
If you have been following the viral tweet closely, you would have seen multiple tweets which are simple yet impressive going viral on the same topic. A simple interesting comment on the post would fetch thousands of impressions. Such is the power of viral tweets.
So, try to compose your own interesting tweet on a viral topic or tweet.
Tell The Value of the Information You Provide
At times in this fast social media era, people tend to miss out on good tweets without their knowledge. People scroll quickly and do not care to read a tweet or an information if it is not capable of catching their attention in a quick time.
That is why you need to tell them what you are offering. This works out a great deal. You can see posts like ‘10 lessons from my 7-year Stock Market career – A Thread’ performing well.
The reason is that the post works out on many levels. First, it tells the user that the information is from an experienced person. So, they are more susceptible to believing you. Next, see the value it could add. If a reader can manage to take at least 3 key insights from the post, it is going to be useful for his/ her lifetime.
While composing such tweets, make sure the content is of the top tier. Because top tier content will only go viral.
Humor Works Most of the Times
If you observe all the viral tweets you come across, you will easily understand what works well. Funny tweets go viral more than any other category and it is not even close.
So, if you can see the funny side of things on any topic, Tweet. Funny tweets have the tendency to look natural and will receive more amplified engagements than other tweets.
Also, keep the tweet as short as possible in this case. We recommend you stay below the 80-character mark in case you are posting a funny tweet.
Try Narrating a Story
If you can share a story in a few tweets, please do it. There is very little ‘story’ content on Twitter and you can make the most of the chance there. Try to give a message or an information through the story.
There is an even better option with stories. Narrate any specific event or an extraordinary incident from your life. Everyone will have such stories and events associated with themselves. It is easy to create content out of it and putting it out with real emotions can easily become viral.
People love original content. So, do not take a lot of liberty to make the story dramatic. Narrate what you want to narrate, and you will be rewarded.
Post Reply Worthy Contents
Tweets with more replies get noted more than the tweets with more likes and retweets. The reasoning is simple. Generating replies to any tweet is more difficult than other engagements.
So naturally, if you tweet content that makes the followers to interact and comment, the engagement of the post grows well.
You can also think of posts where you can ask a question to which the answers can be imaginative. You can ask your audience to guess an upcoming release and similar to that. Such reply-worthy posts have a good chance of becoming viral.
We hope that now you have an idea about the kind of posts you need to concentrate on and share more to get your tweet to go viral. Get as creative as you can, and you will be rewarded.
