[Social Media] How To Write The Perfect Twitter Bio
Just like anything else on social media, you are putting yourself out there. 'Writing your Twitter bio may be the most complicated thing about Twitter. Well that, and trying to figure out how to contain all your thoughts in just 140 characters. However, just mindlessly writing your Twitter bio may do you more harm than good in terms of followers, and people who actually can find your Twitter account. It may be time to rethink what you currently have. Your Twitter bio is not a grocery list. Your bio is the place to describe yourself to the world. Trust me I am victim of this.
