  • The early days is when you need to find the voice of the brand. You need to find the balance of business and human voice.
  • Be prepared for executive interest building and the question of ROI.
  • Consider the growing needs of the growing number of followers, and be careful to not tweet with stranger. Read bios and know who you’re talking to.
  • Personality has replaced the brand logo. Humanizing the brand is the true opportunity of Twitter.
  • Less than 3 years ago the argument of whether brands ‘belonged’ on Twitter was a hot button. Today it is no longer even a question.
  • Your corporate Twitter account is your front line. Make sure those on the front line are well prepared for the types of questions or concerns clients may have. Don’t keep them in the dark.
  • So how do you take what was very successful for a smaller number of people and one person manning the company Twitter account and scale that to serve the needs of a growing following: Editorial guidelines, Content strategy, Team strategy, Engagement strategy, Schedules and roles
  • Give the team ownership over their content and give your followers the transparency they deserve.
  • Make your content strategy very simple and clear.
  • It’s not always a big crisis, but they can be just as important.
  • Know who your contacts are, who you can count on.
  • Look at yourself in the mirror often. I use Flipboard on the iPad.
  • And also look at your audience frequently and know who they are.
