Justin Welsh shares his step-by-step system for writing great Twitter threads.
“Writing Twitter threads is about the format as much as the information.
Here are the most common mistakes I see when looking at messy threads.
► Lacking a good “Hook Tweet”.
► No “headers” on the “body” Tweets.
► Way too wordy, and no white space for reading.
► No clear call-to-action or call-to-conversation at the end.
► Much like everything I write about, the key to overcoming these problems is having a clear system for writing threads.”
