Hi everyone! I write a newsletter called Indiegrow where I help my subscribers making friends on Twitter by sending them three tweets to engage and comment daily. This week my subscribers asked for resources about how to write good comments. I researched this topic and thought I could share it here if anyone else wants to step up their social media game.
A wonderful comment helps you make good impressions. I found a fantastic article breaking down the art of writing comments into four parts. I summarize them below:
This one is simple: refer to people’s names, if you can. It’s nice, shows you pay attention, and you care about who you are talking to.
Pay whoever you are talking to a compliment. Do you remember going to school for the first time? Everyone is a stranger, and you start making friends with a nice compliment.
Share personal insights & anecdotes. If you don’t share similar experiences, ask an insightful question!
If you genuinely enjoyed the tweet, let them know you’ll keep catching them. Everyone on Twitter spends a lot of time creating things, so it’s nice to know that their work is supported!
If you liked these tips, I share them as part of my newsletter to help founders and makers make friends on Twitter. if you feel like checking it out, it is:
