The Importance of Twitter Etiquette - August 7, 2012
Q. Is there Twitter Etiquette?
A. Yes, indeed! Just like there is email etiquette, Twitter has a few rules to follow.
This form of social media can be a gateway to new relationships and add popularity to your website or business but only if you use it properly.
- Post content that is worth reading.
- Don’t use Twitter to promote yourself or business all of the time.
- Re-Tweet others Tweets that you find interesting or useful.
- Do not use auto responders or auto-follows.
- Get to know your Followers, by looking up their profiles before you reciprocate a Twitter follow.
- Do block people who use spam-like tactics.
- Use a URL shortener like bit.ly to post links. This will help with the 140-character limit.
- Reply to others’ Tweets if you feel inclined, but make sure your replies make sense independently so others can understand them.
- You must Follow to be Followed. The more people you Follow, the more you will be Followed, as long as the content is relevant or interesting.
- Routine is of utmost importance. Stay active or your Followers will forget you and pay less attention when you return.
- Don’t abbreviate too much. Fitting Tweets in the allotted spaces takes practice.
- Spelling counts just like it does in email and other correspondence.
- Unlike Facebook, Twitter is public; everyone can read it.
Twitter may seem like a game, and at times it is, but it can also be a great tool to learn, engage, promote and sell if you use it properly.
