  • It doesn’t matter if you’re CEO of aFortune 500 company or a 75 year oldgrandmother, there are basicguidelines that people follow to getthe most out of Twitter. These are theten that we nd most important.   ©2009
  • 1. Don’t Auto DM First impressions are everything. Don’t make your rst impression an obnoxious one. This is probably the quickest way to get someone to unfollow you. Honestly, no one cares that ”you’re glad they are following you and that you look forward to their tweets.” ©2009
  • 2. Share useful information It is OK to tweet, occasionally, banal subjects like: “I just got coffee” but you should also provide useful information. People want to connect and showing that you share a common interest through useful links, insight and comments works best. Keep your lunch, bathroom and bedtime events to yourself. ©2009
  • 3. Its OK to ask for a ReTweet, just sayThank You The best way to get people to retweet your tweet is to ask. Odds are they will. You’ll garner even better good will after you thank people for their time. ©2009
  • 4. Give credit to someone for goodcontent It’s easy to steal a tweet and use it as your own. It’s better if you retweet and give credit. Odds are then next time you tweet something good, that people will retweet you. ©2009
  • 5. Dont spam A certain amount of self-promotion is to be expected. These days everyone has a blog or a website. Be proud of your links, but just don’t repost the same link over and over again. Mix in other links, retweets and comments instead of the same link. ©2009
  • 6. Watch what you say The internet has a very, very, very long memory and rarely forgets. One offhanded comment or inappropriate link might not harm you right away but could nd you later. If you think your tweet might be too controversial, odds are it probably is. ©2009
  • 7. Become a resource This is especially important to smaller companies. Show you’re more than just a brand trying to sell someone on your product. Provide links to news, website or blogs that your clients might nd useful. Become an expert in your eld so when you do tweet your followers look forward to what you say. ©2009
  • 8. Tweet often but dont over tweet orunder tweet How much is too much? How little is too little? The ”experts” say that 20-30 tweets a day is too much. Anything less than 10 times a day is too little. You need to establish a presence and anything less than 10 times a day will be lost in the stream of tweets. Tweet as often as you feel comfortable. Through feedback and time, you’ll develop a natural feel for what you think is the proper amount your audience will accept. ©2009
  • 9. Learn the lingo What is RT, hashtags, DM – it’s important to be able to talk to the talk with others. Learn what the language of Twitter is before you get started. ©2009
  • 10. Don’t have huge conversations Twitter isn’t a message board or instant messenger. Its main function is send out a single message. As a rule of thumb, anything longer than three tweets back and forth should be moved to DMs or another channel like email, AIM or MSN. Since everyone that follows you can see your tweets, if they aren’t following the other person, they miss half the conversation and your tweets are cluttering their twit stream. ©2009
  • If I could offer one last piece of advice, read andlisten to what’s being said by your followers. You’llhave a much richer Twitter experience and developgreater relationships. There are more rules thatcould be added but these are the top ten that I ndthe most useful. What are your rules for good tweeting? ©2009
