Twitter can be a tough world to learn and command, so with that in mind,
Here are a few tips for those of you who may need them…
1. Have a profile picture.
We don’t want to see the Twitter egg when we’re thinking about following you. We want to see… you! Twitter is about connecting, the first part of that is seeing your face.
2. Fill out the profile information.
There’s a lot of spam on Twitter. Many of those spammers have no profile information at all or just have a link. You don’t have to reveal much, just enough so that we know it’s really you.
3. Tweet regularly.
Keep your twitter stream updated. If you have 2,000 followers and only 10 tweets, we’ll immediately think something’s up. Update you twitter stream if you want to utilize twitter.
4. Respond to people.
I know it can be impossible to respond to all replies/DM’s, but unless you’re a celebrity, reply to people when it’s appropriate. You don’t have to say something every time, but definitely sometime.
5. Tweet others as you’d want to be tweeted.
Don’t send random links to people or try to get people to read your stuff if you never mention them otherwise. Also, try to be positive when responding to people. As our Moms always said, “If you can’t tweet anything nice, don’t tweet anything at all.”
