CoSn Twitter Tips Card

  1. 1. Twitter Tips Tweetiquette: Guidelines for a Twitter-ific Experience • Provide a complete bio and profile image – others are more likely to follow you or engage in conversation if they know a little about you first. • Be honest and authentic; be yourself. Don’t communicate like a robot (e.g., using auto reply messages when someone follows you on Twitter). • Be transparent about your work/employer in your profile, if your use of Twitter has any implications for your work life. • Don't go Twitter crazy. You’re likely to lose followers if you tweet excessively, or tweet about all your daily activities (e.g., what you had for lunch). • Think before you post. Remember your post can live online forever. Be respectful. Don’t use profanity, ethnic slurs, personal insults, obscenity, etc. • Be community-minded. Retweet, ask and respond to questions. Share information and links, but don’t make it all about you. Top-Notch Twitter Tools • CoTweet (cotweet.com) – A free and easy tool for managing multiple Twitter accounts – up to five – with a single login. It also allows brand and keyword monitoring through Twitter search. • TweetDeck (tweetdeck.com) – A Twitter management tool that allows you to update your accounts, follow topics with saved searches, and manage conversations with @ replies and direct messages. • Hootsuite (hootsuite.com) – A professional Twitter client offering a wide range of features including the ability to manage other social media accounts, schedule Tweets, and track Twitter statistics. • Mobile Apps – Post updates to Twitter from anywhere; options include OpenBeak (orangatame.com/products) for Blackberrys, Tweetie (atebits.com) and Echofon (echofon.com) for the iPhone. • Twtpoll (twtpoll.com) – A feedback tool that helps you to conduct polls/surveys on Twitter, or any other social media site. • Twtvite (twtvite.com) – An event manager tool that helps you organize Tweetups and make meaningful connections through social media.

Twitter Lists provides a curated stream of the latest tweets from a set of users you’ve specified. You can follow lists created by others without having to follow each person. Hashtags are a community-driven convention for adding additional context and metadata to your tweets, enabling Twitter users to easily spread information, and follow topic-related discussions or group conversations. Simply prefix a word with a hash symbol, and add it in your tweet.
