Twitter Pinned Tweet - How and Why You Should Use it for Business

Pinning tweets on Twitter is likely one of the most useful but overlooked feature of Twitter. If you are not using or haven't even thought about using pinned tweets, I hope this blog post and podcast will change your mind.

Pinned tweets provide numerous opportunities for you to generate leads, convert more sales, grow your email list, increase brand awareness, conduct market research, increase ROI of your content assets and most importantly connect with your audience.

You can easily pin any tweet that you have sent. After pinning the tweet it will be showcased at the very top of your profile for all to see! Do you ever have a tweet that you wish the world could see? Well, pinning the tweet will not obviously guarantee the world will see it, but it will guarantee more people who visit your Twitter profile will definitely see it!

The new tweet stays pinned to the very top of your Twitter profile until you remove it!

It doesn't require expert Twitter skills. Here is how you pin a tweet:

  1. Find the tweet you want to pin.
  2. Click the three dots on the bottom right of your tweet
  3. Click “pin to your profile” in the box that pops up
  4. Hit “pin” again when Twitter asks you to confirm or cancel
  5. Now go back to your Twitter profile and refresh to make sure it is there
