Want Tweet ideas? Here are 75!

Everyone has times of “Brain Freeze” where you just do not know what to Tweet.  You might feel that you are drained of creative ideas.  The goal of this blog is to not only give you some  ideas, but also a few tips to help you along the way.  My first and biggest is to do the  mama test.  This means to “Tweet like nobody is listenin’ except you’mama!”

One of the best things I have done is to finally follow the advice of so many other leaders and I created a calendar as well as a schedule for my social media platforms. 2015-07-20_1505  

I carefully monitored each platform and then I created a scheduled for what type of posts and what times gave me the best results.  For me, this has been a real God send in preventing that mental block.   I will in fact schedule 2-4 days at a time for Twitter and then watch my home stream for potential retweets, replies, and so on.
