Tweets without links get more engagement.

Twitter is a platform for engaging with customers and building relationship with them. Links will not add value to your post.
#2 Use the Right Hashtags
Twitter is all about using right hashtags. Twitter invented the hashtag in 2007. Hashtags will always remain the foundation of your Twitter post. Hashtag tools like Hashtagify can provide you the right hashtag for your tweet.
#3 Add Images for Shared Links
Of course picture speaks thousand words! It’s no surprise that tweets with images stand out and get more engagement than tweets without images. Fortunately, there are a variety of tools you can use to find the right images to use in your tweets.
Twitshot is an online tool that will assist in finding right image when you share links.
#4 Tweet with the Proper Format
To compose a tweet in the proper format, you need to have all of the individual elements in the correct order.
Start your tweet with text and then add a link. Make sure to include the attribution with @mentions if applicable. Then add hashtags and insert your image.
Now that you know the rules for composing a tweet, you can break them for effect. Come up with multiple ways to tweet the same information to add variety to your Twitter stream.
For example, rather than adding the article title, use an interesting or relevant quote from the article (attributing it to the author) with a link and hashtags. Another option is to start the tweet with a question that the article answers.
#5 Provide Value with Quote Tweets
The new Quote Tweet function allows you to add 116 characters when you retweet.
However, don’t just repeat the title when you retweet someone else’s content. Give content by adding your own opinion or interest for the information.
Another option is to include a quote from the post shared in the tweet.
#6 Tweet at Optimal Times
Time plays a vital role when you decide to tweet. Research about the people that at what time they are active on tweeter and then tweet accordingly.
“The best time to tweet is from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM”
Your engagement will depend on how many people see your tweet and that will only happen when you tweet at their time.
#7 Reverse-Engineer Popular Tweets
