  • Twitter Ethics What is Twitter ethics?
    • It will help me to define my Twitter ethics as a private person or a company if I ask myself two questions:
    • How do I use the service? = What is accepted on Twitter and what isn ’ t? (Twitter etiquette, Twetiquette)
    • What do I use it for ? = What is my motivation to use Twitter? (Twitter ethics)
    Twitter Ethics What is Twitter ethics?
    • How do I use the service?
    Twitter Ethics What is Twitter etiquette?
    • Apart from Twitter official website there ’ s no pre-defined set of rules published on the topic.

    • What can I do?
    • Learn from experienced users, preferably established online personalities?
    • Try it out myself?
    • I can do both!
    Twitter Ethics What is Twitter ethiqette?
    • ‘ 1. Never send more than 140 characters. I break this rule all the time because what I have to say simply doesn ’ t fit into 140 characters. So, why not just say it on my blog? Easy. I ’ m reacting to something someone said to me on Twitter. What happens on Twitter should stay in Twitter.[ … ]
    • 9. If other people are telling you you ’ re spamming, you should listen to them. Me? I tell them to screw off. ’
    • http://scobleizer.com/2007/09/23/the-10-rules-of-twitter-and-how-i-break-every-one/
    Twitter Ethics What others think…
    • ‘ Use an avatar. It lets us know you ’ re possibly human.
    • If you ’ re using Twitter only as a link feed, consider marking your “ bio ” section with that, so people can decide.[ … ]
    • If you don ’ t have much to say, it ’ s okay not to say it.[ … ]
    • It ’ s okay to promote yourself. Just consider promoting some other folks, too. Mix it up a bit.
    • Removing someone as a Twitter friend doesn ’ t (necessarily) reflect on how you feel on them as a person. It ’ s okay. ’
    • http://www.chrisbrogan.com/etiquette-in-the-age-of-social-media/
    Twitter Ethics What others think…
    • ‘ Consistently using your Twitter stream for nothing but self-promotion and ego.
    • Requesting that your friends Retweet your Tweets on a consistent basis. […]
    • Not humanizing your profile. […]
    • Streaming only your blog’s RSS feed on Twitter. […]’

    Twitter Ethics … or dislike…
  • Twitter Ethics … might not suit my beliefs!
    • What others accept, and I agree with is
    • Twitter ethiquette!
    ‘ 1. If I’m interested in you, and you are on Twitter, I may follow you. In other words, I’ll initiate the connection. 2. If you follow me and I already know and like you, I’ll most likely follow you back. 3. If you follow me and I don’t know you, I’ll quickly check out your Twitter page. If you link to a blog, I’ll review that. Next, I’ll review your most recent 10 Twitter posts. If they are aligned with me, and offer value, I’ll follow you.’ http://www.attentionmax.com/blog/2008/05/why_twitter_matters_and_why_i_just_might_follow_you.php Twitter Ethics My Twitter ethiquette
