Being new to Twitter over the last 60 days, I’m happy to say I succeeded in setting up my account, started following certain people of interest, and even got a few new followers myself!
Now comes the hard part, what is the proper “Tweet” etiquette and how much is too much? Being very different than a Facebook status “Off to watch the game – go Broncos” periodically, Twitter is intended for those quick messages that will be beneficial to others and interesting enough to gain followers. Or is it?
Trying to determine what to tweet, how often to tweet, and finding new people to follow has been the most difficult thus far! Last thing a new member of Twitter wants to do is look like a twit!
Thought I had it down, retweet interesting tidbits, provide quick links to key articles in your industry or area of interest, promote positives like companies you have just experienced a great customer service interaction with…
But now, I see many people do tweet where they are, what they are doing, more personalized. So how DO we know what to tweet and not to tweet? THAT is the question…
Did a bit of research today and found a very helpful article http://www.pcworld.com/article/169137/twitter_etiquette_how_to_tweet_politely.html that seems to sum it up well.
Learning a new social media tool or app can sometimes be frustrating, but there are people and companies out there to give advise. Simply need to find the right one!
