Social Media – Mentions

Have you received an email from Twitter stating you were mentioned in a tweet?  Not too sure what mentions are?  No problem!

Mentions are a feature of Twitter where you name is included in someone’s tweet. For example ”today the weather was great, @example and I spent the day relaxing in the sun”.

Mentions are an effective way of promoting a page as it appears on a tweet feed of everyone who follows the person who made that tweet.

Therefore if a person has 1000 followers then your page could be viewed by 1000 followers.

To mention someone in a tweet  simply put @ and their name which links to their page.  A very common mention is included within a thank you for following a tweet.
