Users love visuals that capture their attention and bring up conversations. This can be through sharing entertaining, funny and interesting content that users can comment on or retweet. GIFS are another short and humorous way to engage users. GIFS are short clips that add expression to your tweets without using larger form videos.

Use hashtags

Hashtags are the easiest way for users to find content they love and enjoy. They group similar content together and draw in users who have similar interests in content. A lot of engagement happens through hashtags and sometimes, hashtag challenges, that users can create content to share with a trending hashtag. Some of the most popular hashtags are #ethereum, #crypto and #blackhistorymonth. Choosing a hashtag that is relevant to your content is always better because you want them to target users that are genuinely interested in your content. Alternatively, get involved in conversations on hashtags relevant to you so that you can meet other users with similar interests in content. That conversation could lead them to your page.
