New information that was released recently shows something very surprising about Twitter: Not everyone who’s signed up there ends up tweeting. Even if some astute people realize the process of following on Twitter is cloaked in spam rather than in people who follow out of interest, there seems to be a certain part of the population who prefer to just read for news and information than to interact. The question, though, is why those people prefer not to interact. It’s a mystery you can say about various famous people not yet on Twitter as well as the very non-famous.
But what if you made an attempt to convince those people to pipe in on Twitter and join the interactive party? There could be a misconception in those individuals that they really can’t interact well in Twitter exchanges or they have nothing important to say. When matched against those who constantly tweet blather, you might be able to cajole them. Then again, you might be able to convince them in other ways.
Tell Them How Many Notables Are Already on Twitter
If you happen to know someone notable, you might want to tell them that just about every big name in the news today are now on Twitter and very active. This includes some older, legendary celebrities if that notable person knows them or at least remembers them from decades ago. Everyone from Dick Van Dyke to Betty White tweet fairly regularly. As far as younger celebrities, you can’t name one who doesn’t tweet regularly, sometimes to their chagrin.
You might be able to convince the reluctant tweeter by telling them some of those celebrities respond if not at least read your tweets. It might be enough to at least follow the notables they like and attempt a conversation. Other than meeting them in person, it’s one of the best ways to convey ideas or express gratitude in ways that perhaps couldn’t be said face to face.
Tell Them How You Can Make Money with a Business on Twitter
Those who don’t tweet may think it’s not worth anything if you can’t have monetary benefits in the long run. On top of it, someone may get the impression it’s a waste to tweet things at all that don’t matter in the bigger picture. With enough followers, though, tweeting regularly with things related to a business can bring visitors to a business website linked in a user’s profile. Over time, it can bring in more business than one might think, especially when using hashtags.
If the person you’re trying to cajole is a writer, it can bring readers to their blog or articles and increase traffic more than just if relying on the search engines.
Tell Them About Being Part of a Collective During Historical Events
When something historical is going on, being a part of a worldwide discussion with both non-famous and famous alike. Commentaries are done all the time during award shows or during other live historical events that happen unexpectedly. You should let the person know just how hilarious those commentaries can be if they’re skeptical about the quality. Likewise, they can also be some of the most eloquent 140 characters you’ll ever read when something horrific happens and the world reacts.
Tell Them They May Receive Buzz About Finally Tweeting on Twitter
It doesn’t matter if they’re famous or not when being one of the last holdouts finally tweeting on Twitter. No doubt if they’re non-famous, they’ll have many friends and family already on Twitter who will be excited about the person finally tweeting. Let the person know that their Notifications box will likely be flooded with welcome tweets the minute they send out their first tweet.
This happens all the time when celebrities still refraining from Twitter finally tweet for the first time. The media even picks up on it and lets everyone know so fans can add the notable to their follow list.
Most of all, those reluctant to join in on Twitter should realize the value of tweeting with everybody, regardless of how notable they are. Creating a conversation on social media about everything and anything is the best way to react to things when you have the entire world in front of you in one stream.
