Apart from our own, we can pin tweets of other people too on our own Twitter profiles. If there’s a thought, theory, program, scheme, product, etc that you would like to share with your followers which don’t necessarily belong to you, you can still pin it on your own Twitter account without any hitch! Here’s a guide on how to pin someone else’s tweet on your own profile!
We share our own ideas and even others’ while pinning them on our Twitter profiles to make our followers realize our ambitions and thoughts. Where some tweets get viral achieving lots of shares and retweets, some do not. However, this isn’t about getting retweets or earning lots of followers! We pin tweets for various purposes and the purpose of every different individual varies.
However, the foremost reason for pinning any tweet can be for making a new follower or even profile visitor aware of yourself and things you do or what your Twitter account deals with! No matter what business or profession you’re in, Twitter has its way of helping us with its “pin tweet” feature that makes a particular tweet sit atop our Twitter profile! It’s an amazing feature that can get you, prospective clients, on a daily basis.
So let’s see everything about pinning tweets on Twitter today and how you can do that!
What Is A Pinned Tweet?
Twitter updated the profile view back in 2014 and added new features like best tweets, pinned tweets, and filtered tweets. Out of all these tweets, pinned tweets attracted more attention from online businesses that wanted to boost the reach of their businesses online!
Although social media platforms have long been used to find solace from the real world, it’s undeniable that the real benefits can be reaped from such platforms by promoting and branding our products. Twitter is no exception! So, amidst all this, what is a pinned tweet really and how can it help you out?
Pinned Tweets are the tweets that stay static on your Twitter timeline until you remove them yourself.
