Comedy in 140 characters: The art of Twitter humour

We’ve all fancied ourselves as a bit of a comedian at some point in our lives but are we really that funny? One of the best way to interact through Twitter is to be funny, but can we get our humour across in 140 characters?

The art of Twitter humour is to get your users laughing within 140 characters of text. If you can achieve this, you’re almost guaranteed to attract more followers and build your brand awareness, but how do we master this difficult art?

First things first

Be funny in real life! If you are someone who likes to tell jokes that go on for hours, without ever really discovering a punch line, fitting your comedy in a single 140 character tweet might not be the thing for you.

What’s next?

Follow funny people! If you have ever been called funny (not funny looking, that’s different), you might have a chance of getting this Twitter humour right. Start following comedians or anyone who has a decent following and gather some ideas.

Don’t worry if you are not funny (some us aren’t)! Keep going…you can always brand your three followers as a “niche audience”.
