BuildInPublic Twitter Inspiration Handbook - Ideas for tweets that I collected by analyzing 200 BuildInPublic accounts

I analyzed about 200 #BuildInPublic twitter accounts, collected the best practices of #BuildingInPublic and grouped them into categories. Hope you find it useful.

1) Tell how you cope with struggles

Glossy stories repel. And do you remember at least one popular film without overcoming problems and difficulties? Great tool for building trust, and relationships.
cope with struggles

2) Tell what has changed through experience

Creating something creates a new experience that changes us and the way we work, it's a great thing to share.

3) Engage your readers in the process

Interactivity is a great opportunity to captivate readers.

4) Ask

Here we are not talking about questions to engage the audience, but to find expertise for your project - involve in the product, not in the tweet.

5) Shine a light on what's behind the scene

Most of the work on the product is not visible to customers, but this does not mean that it should not be shown.

6) Story of today

Life is not always a routine, unusual events or experiments are a great opportunity to share them

7) Tell how you feel

Tell about your feelings about creating something.Creation is always a gamut of emotions.

8) Breakdown metrics/milestone

Dry numbers are not catchy, but how you achieved this is a completely different story.

9) Uncover the value of a new feature

Do not tell what you did, tell what it will give to the user

10) Harsh truth

Moving forward, we often see and feel the hidden side.
#BuildinPublic is a great opportunity to show it.
Honesty wins.

11) Show your toolbox

Thor has a hammer, Captain America has a shield, but what do you have?

12) Go against the trend

People get tired of trends, an anti-trend opinion based on your experience will allow you to develop credibility

    Thanks for the writeup!

    I'd like to ask, what software do you use to annotate your images? It's pretty cool.

    This was a terrific writeup, thanks for doing it.

    It’s healthy to be humbled! I recently made that classic mistake of deciding on a feature rewrite vs. an iterative refactoring approach with a client project. It cost me some credibility and I want to share what happened and how I plan to overcome this obstacle. I'm going to use this project as an opportunity to share the struggle in public (after I've communicated with the client, of course!)

    Wow! So helpful! I've never really understood what does it mean to really build something in public. I'm in the very beginning of my new pet project for musicians and will publish about it something daily. Thanks, Ivan!
