The last post before you sign off Twitter
Before you sign off from a Twitter session, make sure that your last post is interesting. Why? Because this is the post that people will see when they scan a list of someone's followers, or their own.
It's the post they'll see in many Twitter apps when they come across your name in a search. It's the post that will help them decide whether or not to follow or unfollow you, or to investigate your feed and profile more thoroughly ... or just ignore you.
It's also the first post they'll see if you've included their @Twittername in a reply, and they're curious enough to come check out your feed. It may be the only post they'll see if they're not following you, depending on the Twitter app they're using.
