“Those were the best rules I ever learned for the business of writing. I’ve never forgotten them. No man with any talent, who feels and writes truly about the thing he is trying to say, can fail to write well if he abides with them.” Ernest Hemingway

Okay, so Twitter was before Ernest Hemingway’s time. But you have to admit, he knew how to write a tweet. 

The author’s tight writing would surely have fit the character count, and his choice of words, worthy of a retweet.

Here are writing tips handed to him when he was a reporter at the Kansas City Star.

1. Use short sentences.

2. Use short first paragraphs.

3. Use vigorous English.

4. Be positive, not negative.

I have something for you!
