Using your Emails to Tweet

Using your Emails to “Tweet”

twitter_birdI’m a big email newsletter fan.  I follow a lot of newsletters and I assist many clients with publishing their newsletters. Many business that publish newsletters have an Archive page where old issues can be reviewed. Sometimes these addresses or URLs can be rather long.  Not good if you “Tweet.”

On Twitter, a long web address can eat up a lot of characters (you only get 140). There’s a great, free online service called tinyurl.com.

Simply paste your Archive URL or Sign Up page URL into the form on their home page, and poof… out comes a short (tiny) URL!

Because Twitter limits “tweets” to only 140 characters, it will challenge you to be concise when you write an article teaser. You can tell your followers, “just wrote a newsletter on [insert your topic]. Find it here [insert your tiny URL newsletter archive link].”
