Top 5 Twitter Don’ts!

Sine we have provided you with the list of things you should do on Twitter, it is only fair that we prepare you for the things you should never do:

  1. Do Not Send Spam Links: You may be tempted to send links that promote your area of expertise but if they seem like spam, don’t send them. Trust me, they get you unfollowed.
  2. Do Not Depend on Automatic Tweets: Tweet later and automatic tweets are much less time consuming but impersonal and annoying!
  3. Do Not Send Spam or Generic Direct Messages: They make tweeps regret following you and might consider unfollowing you as well.
  4. Do Not Flatter Yourself: Regardless of the number of followers you have, try to be humble and care about what others say and think. You will never know it all!
  5. Do Not Over Do It: Market your product, service or idea wisely. Don’t push people away by repeating the same tweets over and over again to get noticed!

Happy tweeting :)

Tweepi Quick Tip: Embrace Your Niche Twitter

Your influence on Twitter is not measured by the number of people following you, it’s measured by your ability to influence your followers. To increase your influence on Twitter, you should consider catering to niches. You can do that by creating Twitter accounts for each topic that you want to talk about  instead of discussing them all through a single account.

This is a good idea for the same reason that it is a good idea to have clearly indicated sections in a newspaper. This way, those who are only interested in reading about the economy don’t have to weed through the sport news item to find their economical news.

So, if your business wants to offer customer service along side the accounts role in PR, consider creating 2 accounts even though they are managed by a single person. To simplify managing multiple accounts you should consider using services such as Hootsuite to help you achieve that task.
