Cool Things You Can Do With Twitter (That You Probably Don’t Know About)

By Katie Barber,posted on November 29, 2018

Twitter has a lot of possibilities, but most people don’t use it to its full functionality. That’s because to use Twitter to it’s fullest, you’ll need to be able to do things like embedding code and doing simple HTML text edits. If you feel comfortable with that, you can see the HTML I used on this blog post on this Evernote version.

If you aren’t code comfortable and it freaks you out just a little bit don’t worry, have a read of this blog post and if you’d like to implement anything on your own profiles or blog just contact me through my website or send me a message on Facebook and I will be able to help you out. 

Here are 9 ways you can use Twitter differently:


Embed your or another person’s timeline, mentions or hashtags in your blog. See example here.

Encourage people to tweet you directly from your blog. 

Add a follow button anywhere on your website.

Encourage someone to tweet a specific URL (link) username or hashtag directly from your blog.

Embed a specific tweet in your blog. It can be from your account, or another person’s.

Create a Twitter moment and embed it on your site. A Twitter moment can be a collection of tweets including text, videos and photographs which you can use to showcase a collection of whatever you want. You could curate your most popular tweets, links to blog posts, or to record a current trend or news event. Or you could just make one about cute bunnies. View my Twitter moment example here – click clicky.  


You can get someone to send you a direct message on Twitter, this is particularly useful if you’re in a heated conversation on Twitter and want to encourage the other person to send you a private message rather than continuing to argue publicly.

You can go live on Twitter directly from your mobile app, just like you can with Instagram or Facebook. This is worth doing if like most people, your audience on Twitter is different to your other profiles. You can also post videos.

Create a Twitter thread. If you’re tweeting multiple tweets about the same subject, you can tie these together by replying to your own tweet. And you can do it as many times as you like!
