A common mistake is made by those who try to use all the characters available. It’s obvious that you cannot express your every achievement or personality trait in 160 characters, and you shouldn’t. 

Consider that people tend to scan through the first lines and pick out the relevant points from there. Your bio should be a short and meaningful snapshot of who you or your company is. Think of it as a headline that gets straight to the point.

The social media bio is not only a description about you, it’s also a way to invite people to find out more about you. If you want to get people off the app and to your website, blog or another landing page, add a call to action to your bio.

Once people have gone through your information, further engage your audience and instead of adding your homepage URL provide a link to your latest content, newsletter sign-up page, free trial versions or special promotions.
