One Way to Make Good Writing Easy to Share

Ever give up on Tweeting a great quote because the site you’re on makes you jump through too many hoops?

I don’t know if Kathy Caprino can claim credit for the idea, but the Forbes contributor gets my vote for perfect implementation: She took an exceptionally quotable line from her story and turned it into a Tweet (with automatic article link) with just one user click.

In her article The Top 6 Things You Should Never Tolerate in Your Career, Caprino suggests making positive moves in place of enduring stress. One of her proposed alternative looks like this:
succinct writing
Of course, “Begin to think about what you’d like your legacy to be” would make a beautiful Tweet; it’s the kind of thing people hang on their walls for inspiration. Knowing this, Caprino inserted a tiny Twitter bird after the sentence that, when clicked on, turns it into a ready-made Tweet complete with article link.

The result is a hard-to-ignore, engaging message that should pump up her Twitter followers and send new readers to the full article. Now, that’s good, strategic writing!
