Twitter Dos and Don’ts

TwitterI think Twitter’s features are not explained well, which scares some people off. Examples of common misunderstandings:

  • Starting a tweet with a twitter handle doesn’t broadcast to anyone but that twitter handle. Even some influencers that I interact with still make this mistake.
  • Put your commentary in front of a RT, or you’ll end up like ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who recently made Cardinals running back Beanie Wells look like he was smack talking his own quarterbacks.
  • Hashtags help people search for things on Twitter, see what topics are “trending” or popular,  or filter a conversation on a topic such as an event or tweetchat. Don’t overuse them.

I recommend that twitter offer better training when you sign up.
