OUTPERFORM ON TWITTER NOW. HERE’S HOW!
With over 453 million users – 206 million of which log onto Twitter on a daily basis (a metric called monetizable daily active users, mDAU) – Twitter is one of the top three social networks in the US and one of the leading social networks worldwide!
And as such, it has become a must in any digital marketing strategy.
KNOW THE PLAYGROUND: MEET YOUR AUDIENCE
Twitter users are receptive and brand-conscious consumers who value responsiveness, and who strongly reward brands that make the effort. Twitter users are willing to pay more for quality products (66% vs 58% for the rest of the online population).
More importantly, this is not only about the users being willing to pay more but also about how they influence other users – both on and off Twitter. It turns out that, compared to other social media users, Twitter users are hugely influential. A study has shown that 3 in 4 people said that a Twitter user is the first person they look to for advice when they want to learn more about a topic, and 9 in 10 of them said they had changed their opinion on a purchase based on advice from their friend who uses Twitter. In short, Twitter’s audience is influential far beyond Twitter, which is of great value to brands.
KEY TWITTER CHALLENGES FOR A PERFORMANCE MARKETER
With its distinct benefits and a large, constantly growing user base, Twitter has unlocked business opportunities for both big brands and emerging digital native companies. It allows marketers to connect, converse and engage with their audiences. However, performance marketers are still struggling – how to run successful performance campaigns on Twitter?
Here are key Twitter performance challenges:
Twitter to date has primarily been focused on 'brand business'. Recently they invested in 'new and revamped performance ad products that will drive its users to install apps, click on videos and eventually even make purchases'. and implemented new tools that focus on three performance categories (Aggregated Measurement, Events Manager, and Site Visit Optimisation).
However, in order to include Twitter in their marketing mix more often, performance marketers need to see strong sales conversions not just top of funnel awareness. More than 73% of marketers ranked "increased acquisition of new customers" as their top outcome when it comes to marketing on social, while 45% of marketers cited "drive conversions" as a key outcome. In order to gain new customers or hot leads, what performance marketers need to achieve is conversions – to sale, install, download, click.
Twitter’s ad buying interface has at times been a challenge for performance marketers. In order to increase efficiency and meet defined KPIs a performance marketer needs to dedicate additional resources. That’s why they need a simple, easy to use and effective platform, A/B testing, and smarter analytics that would make their campaign management on Twitter more efficient. Ultimately, the brands that come out on top are the ones who embrace a data-driven approach to make smarter, more deliberate decisions on spending. In order to make the approach smarter – a performance marketer needs to get in-depth insights to understand why a campaign worked. Those needs are not yet sufficiently solved by Twitter itself. In a recent Delloite survey involving 556 CMO’s of global companies, the majority of them identified analytical expertise as a more important skill than creative expertise.

Making of: When, why, and how Twitter was born
Twitter was created by Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams in March 2006 and launched in July of that year. The first tweet was by Jack Dorsey – on March 21st, 2006 he wrote: “Just setting up my twttr.” By 2012, more than 100 million users posted 340 million tweets a day, and the service handled an average of 1.6 billion search queries per day.
Twitter's Code of Conduct: Everything you could say in 280 characters
Twitter is still a place for sharing concise, brief thoughts and news. Initially, the maximum tweet length was set to 140 characters, and the limit was increased to 280 characters in 2017. It is interesting that this was actually a very unpopular upgrade back then. Twitter found that out of the tweets sent by users with the expanded limit, only about 5% actually went over the usual 140 characters – and only 2% went over 190 characters. However, users who use Twitter for marketing or providing customer service know it is difficult to explain complex issues in shorter tweets. So, Twitter increased the limit, even though the majority of tweets are still much shorter than 240 characters.
