Don’t forget to ask your followers to share or retweet the link.
Productivity Tip: There are many tools out there that allow you to set up and schedule your updates to go out anytime in the future (Hootsuite, Twuffer, Later Bro).

Tailoring your status/headline for each community could make a big difference.
