Remember, Twitter is a conversation.Ask questions; don't just pontificate.What part of 140 characters do you not understand? Remember the limitations.Some things are better left unsaid. So avoid stream-of-consciousness-blogging via Twitter.Transparency is vital - just as with any other social media.Consider quality vs. quantity.Many users provide links to interesting articles, information.Use proper grammar.If people follow you, it's polite to "follow" them back. However, becauseof that, be careful about adding too many people at one time -- that'sthe Twitter version of spamming. People will think you're trying tosell or hype something rather than start a conversation.It's really all about the art of conversation.http://rob573.blogspot.com/2009/07/twitter-etiquette-10-simple-rules.html
