Things to Avoid on Twitter
« on: 12-14-2012, 05:06:01 »
Here are some of things that frequent twitter users should avoid to risk their name and brand:

    Spam Characters:The spammer tweet will has nothing to do with any discussion, and they are following no one and have no followers. Purpose is to call attention to a useful article, interesting reference or to express thanks @your-twittername. To get rid use Tweet deck.

    Tweets in Bulk: User retweets just to get attention. Blasting out a series of tweets at one time to fills up the Twitter home page or increases the at least allow a few minutes in between each tweet, so that other people can get a word in edgewise.

    Direct Messages to sell a product: DM send to force people to see something stride through it’s like getting spam in the inbox.

    Auto Responders: DM is a good idea, but it completely loses its authenticity when it’s automated. No one can be on Twitter 24/7, so some scheduling of tweets is necessary. But so much or too automated may be creating the impression that you aren’t interested in connecting with others and its spam. Same for the follow also following everyone to auto-follow everyone that follows you, but this does little more than open you up to phishing scams, spam followers.

    Stinking language: Word gets around quickly. You can be comfortable swearing in front of your close buddies, you probably really don’t know your Twitter community beware that you say nice things about nice people, say nothing about less- than-nice people. Beware.

    Wrong use of tags: Hash tags are way of classifies tweets around a single topic. But adding multiple generic tags to the end of your tweet is not one spam. Rather it highlights you as a newbie use.

    Talking about self: Twitter is a successful conversations tool typically gives and takes interactions. Too many users are just there to promote their own interests only.

The things that should be avoided are-
-Excessive Tweeting or Re-tweets-Try to keep the tweeting as minimal and as meaningful as possible
-Frequency-The frequency of the tweets should be moderate
-Follow anyone and everyone-Don't follow anyone just because following them will make them follow you back increasing your follower count
-Abuse-If you use offensive language and abusive tweets then your business will go down
-Inaccurate profile-If you have left your profile incomplete,fill it up now.People might  think you are hiding something.
-Personal talk-Don't bore people with personal talks on Twitter,if you use it for business purposes.
