  • 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.
  • Show all three.
  • Reposition Photos on Your Timeline If you want your timeline to look as lovely as possible, you can fine tune how your images appear.If an image is off-center or you can't see the main focus of the photo, reposition it to look better.Click the "Edit or Remove" pencil icon on the top-right and select "Reposition Photo." Click and drag it until it's in a better position.
