Again, there are tools that can assist to get images that will suit any tweet. Twishot is an online image search tool that browses the internet and finds images you can use to share a link.
Use Proper Format when Tweeting.
Even in tweeting, you need to follow a format just like when constructing a sentence. Always begin with the text then add the link. If you have mentions, then include them ‘@mention’. Don’t make the mistake many do by using @mentions first, that tweet will only be seen by the @mentions you have chosen. Finally put in your hashtags and images.
Add to Quoted Tweets.

On Twitter, there is, ‘Twitter Analytics’, click on the tab named ‘Audiences’ and then scroll to ‘Country’. Once you have identified where the majority of your followers are located, go to Tweroid. This is a tool that lets you know the peak times that your tweet can be read in various countries.

At times it is just as simple as tweeting the same tweet several times without followers know it’s the same. On the same Twitter Analytics, you can find out which of your tweets got a lot of engagements. Once you find the tweet, then identify what elements are in the tweet. Use the same elements to create another tweet.
Create Content From People.
The beauty about Twitter is that you can create a Twitter lists so that you can see other people’s tweets. Find people on Twitter who share the same content that you believe your followers can also consume. Add them to your Twitter list and keep checking what they have tweeted, then retweet what you want.
