Social media has become a sounding board for all manner of businesses in recent years and the betting industry is no exception. When you visit any of the top bookmakers online, you’ll notice that they’re as active on Twitter as any celebrity.
Naturally, with so much noise out there in the Twitterverse, finding tweets worth reading isn’t easy. Fortunately, with a little bit of knowledge, you’ll not only find the best bookmakers on Twitter but potentially improve your chances of banking some cash.
The easiest way to find the best betting brands on Twitter is to follow our secure sign-up links, create an account and then scroll to the bottom of the site’s homepage. If there’s not a Twitter logo there, it may be somewhere at the top of the page or inside the Contact section.
Alternatively, some of the more active operators actually embed their Twitter feeds into their desktop platform. If you want to add more than one operator, you can simply visit Twitter and carry out a search. Typing in keywords such as 'bookmaker', 'sports betting' and 'betting odds' bring up the most influential tweeters on the platform.
Whichever option is available, all you have to do is click the link/logo and it will take you Twitter. At this point, you can hit the follow button if you already have an account. For those that don’t have an account, you can choose to register at this point and then click the follow button. If that sounds extremely easy, it’s because it is.
Everyone will have their own preferences when it comes to the betting operators they think are worth following on social media. To help get you find the accounts that work for you, here’s a list of popular brands for you to check out:
OK, so the big bookmakers are on Twitter, why should I care? Well, there are a few reasons. The obvious one is so that you can keep in touch with everything that’s happening at your favourite sites. However, there’s a lot more to it than that…
Perhaps the best reason to get on Twitter and follow the top bookmakers is for the information they tweet out. Whether it’s the latest odds, some event/team news or a post from one of their resident experts, you can get a lot of valuable knowledge from Twitter.
Of course, these insights won’t guarantee you a win. But, as any successful sports bettor will tell you, making the right picks is about analysing as many variables as you can. If you can pick up a tip or two via Twitter and factor that into your decision-making process, you should be on the way to making betting picks.
With everyone jostling for position on Twitter, making followers a unique offer is one of the best ways to stand out. Betting brands are particularly active in this area and often give followers the chance to pick up an exclusive bonus or two by retweeting something or taking part in a Twitter poll.
In addition to the social media promos, operators also use Twitter to highlight their latest deals. Even if you’re an active customer, keeping track of every bonus out there can be tough. Indeed, because the top betting sites often bury their best offers deep within the bowels of their site, it can be a chore to sift through them all.
Twitter offers the perfect solution because all the information you need is there in front of you. In fact, you’ll probably find more rewards by following a bookie’s social media account than if you just joined their site.
The final reason to follow bookmakers on Twitter is for the banter. Between the companies and their followers, sports betting Twitter feeds are always filled with jokes, rumours and general chatter about sport. This sense of community and interaction makes your time online a lot more enjoyable, insightful and entertaining.
Indeed, at its core, sports betting is something we do for fun. Twitter allows you to embrace this side of the game, so get online and start following today.
