Twitter Etiquette

Tweeting “right” is not a piece of cake, especially if your intentions go beyond the random act of tweeting to actually promoting products, services and/or people.

Therefore, for today’s post, I”ll be sharing with you 5 Twitter etiquette tips that work for all you Twitter users out there:

  1. Avoid text speak and “dnt tlk lyk ths”- if you are not able squeeze a proper sentence into 140 characters (or, ideally, less), just keep on trying; nobody likes random, incomplete and senseless sentences!

10 Tips for Keeping Your Twitter Followers Hooked on You!

Tweepi cares about whom you follow and unfollow. Just like FFhelper, it was designed to make your Twitter experience more fun and valuable.

Therefore, I have decided to share with you ten simple tips on how to cut through Twitter’s noise clutter and keep your target audience hooked!

1. Please, please, cut the crap!

We all should know that there is nothing called easy money. Therefore, you should refrain from sharing or spreading tweets such as: “The best way to make money online http://miniurls.it/qYTNe4“. Not only is this kind of tweet considered spam, it is also annoying and can easily demolish your Twitter credibility.

2. Know your followers:

And no, I don’t mean start making house visits to each and every one of them! I am just asking you to take some time, visit their blogs or websites, know what they are trying to achieve from their Twitter experience. It’s not all about you! Even in a virtual world, there is always tit for tat!

3. Don’t get hung up on numbers:

Many tweeps out there have thousands of followers yet the content they try to promote fails to attract anyone. Use Twitter tools such as Tweepi to manage your followers, see how active they are, reciprocate follows and remove those spammers who flood your home feed!

4. Monitor the links your retweet:

Sharing links is a great opportunity to promote yourself, your product and/or your service. However, it is also a sneaky way to promote violence, racism and more dramatic subjects. So please, take a minute to check out the link you’re about to retweet, for it may really cause harm to someone’s life! Continue reading »
