Twitter "Top Tweet"

Not sure if any of you know this, but Twitter has a very simple algorithm to get a tweet to be considered a "Top Tweet" ... meaning it will hang around the top 5 or 10 regardless of duration.  Very handy if you are promoting things!

A few tricks:

1. Open a new Twitter account and get just a few quick followers ... maybe 5 or 10.  Top tweets tend to HIGHLY value underdogs in their algorithm.  Meaning that if you post something relevant and a lot of people see it due to search even though you have very few followers, then you usually get "top tweet" status.

2. Don't use tiny links.  Their algorithm hates them.  Use direct links and hash-tags instead.

3. Stick with the basics ... if you are promoting pet supplies, use a hashtag like #dog or #cat.  It's nice and broad and will pop up on a ton of searches.

Test a few combos out and you will be pleasantly surprised.  I just did "dog" and got into the top 5 pretty easily ... check out the screenshot (CouponSurferDude Post):
