Useful Twitter hours hashtags for Leicester businesses

Twitter hours have grown massively over the years, and are a great way for businesses to get their message across to an engaged and active audience – something that Twitter isn’t usually great for.

What is a Twitter hour?

It’s a set time each week where people who share the same interests or geographic location come together and use the same hashtag to share ideas, network and promote their products/businesses/hobbies etc…

The idea is for everyone to be civil, polite and retweet each others tweets within the hour so your own Twitter followers see them. This helps to amplify everyone’s Tweets and increases there reach to a greater audience – in some cases this leads to the hashtag even trending in major cities across the UK.

Why should I get involved with a Twitter hour?

If you are looking to promote your business online, then a Twitter hour can be a great way to amplify your message and reach a large, engaged audience.

The fast-moving nature of Twitter means it is usually not the best medium to gain exposure for your business, as Tweeting even to a fairly large number of followers can often feel like a drop in the ocean.

With a Twitter hour you have a set time each week to reach out to a focused Twitter audience.

What Twitter hours should I get involved with?

In the main there are two different types of Twitter hour: those based around location (city, county, region etc…) and those based around industry/interests (women in business, bloggers, accountants etc…)

Ideally you should be looking to get involved with both types Twitter hours – to help generate new business as well as create more networking opportunities with other business owners.
