How to use Twitter to find Home Swaps

Compared to other social media networks such as Facebook, twitter often gets forgotten about when it comes to Homeswappers using it to find council house exchanges.

If you aren’t utilising Twitter to help you find a home swap then you’re missing a trick!

In this article we’ll take you through how to use it to its full potential and turbo charge your home swap search.

"How can Twitter help you find a home Swap?"

Twitter allows home swappers to send out brief messages to huge audiences. You can easily use this to your advantage and quickly identify other swappers.

It’s also important to point out that not everyone uses Facebook. Have you ever heard the saying “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket”?

The majority of home swappers who find their home quickly keep an open mind and are proactive in their approach.

If you’re willing to keep an open mind then home swap success is literally on the horizon!

Identifying other homeswappers on Twitter

The big question on everyone’s mind will be “How do I use Twitter to find a new home?”

Step 1. If you haven’t already then set up a twitter account.

Step 2. Start following home swap organisations on twitter. A great place to start is by following us on Twitter. You can do this by clicking this link.

Step 3. Post your home swap advert on twitter. If you don’t do this, then anyone else who is searching for Home Swaps on Twitter won’t be able to see your home. See our guide on how to tweet your home swap.

Step 4. Use hashtags (#) to your advantage. The hashtag acts as a search term and will allow you to find home swap opportunities a lot faster.

Start by using these hash tags:

#housinghelp

#homeswap

#homeswapper

#councilexchange

#freecouncilexchange

#mutualexchange

Step 5. Repeat steps 2 to 4 atleast once a day. You need to develop a habit of checking for new home swaps and re-posting your advert. Users who come across an old tweet are far less likely to contact you so show other homeswappers you're actively looking.
