Short and Sweet: What is microblogging?



What is microblogging?

Chances are you may have heard this term “microblogging” before, but what is it? I know blogging is good for my business and search engine marketing, but what the heck is a microblog? To put it simply, microblogging is a form of short posts that provide entertaining and relevant information to keep an audience’s attention.

Short and Sweet vs Long and Informative

Tradition says “Longer posts rank higher and provides more information to my readers which means more sales”, but is this true? We’re genetically predisposed to favor quick reactions, and forcing our brain to concentrate is only getting more difficult as time progresses.

Based on this survey of 1,000 people by Contently, a content marketing platform, they discovered that 75% of people prefer to read articles under 1,000 words.Instead of creating content that we assume our audience wants, we should start to create content our audience prefers to consume.
