It is easy to waste a lot of time on Twitter. It’s also easy to get intimidated by everything you “think” you need to do to succeed at the platform.

Succeeding on Twitter is very simple: respond to messages quickly, send out interesting content, and follow new people!

So, can you get started using Twitter in just 15 minutes a day? Absolutely! Here is a simple schedule to follow:

Every AM – before you open your email:

  1. 1 minute: respond to tweets and DM’s
  2. 1 minute: scan your home feed and retweet 1 tweet
  3. 7 minutes: Open up 3 news sites you read & trust and find 3-4 articles to tweet out. Schedule them in HootSuite to “drip out” later in the day and next day.

Lunch:

  1. 1 minute: respond to tweets and DM’s
  2. 1 minute: scan your home feed and retweet 1 tweet

End of day:

  1. 1 minute: respond to tweets and DM’s
  2. 1 minute: scan your home feed and retweet 1 tweet
  3. 2 minutes: Follow 10 new people
