  9. Clean up your own mess Consistent use of #hashtags allows various aggregation and filtering. Using lists and other third party apps can also keep things tidy. http://allfunny.net/pics/crazykids/crazy-kids-8.jpg
  10. Don’t take things too seriously Caution: Not all tweets are from friends. Some may be spam or misdirection to rogue sites. Don’t RT hyperlinks unless you know where they lead and trust the source. http://static.businessinsider.com/image/4c53108e7f8b9a41307b0000/kids-laughing-soap.jpg
  11. Say sorry when you hurt someone Try to reduce misunderstandings through the use of emoticons, etc. Be quick to apologise if you offend. Respond with good humour  http://weburbanist.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/teddy-usb.png
  12. Wash your hands (of scepticism) Give Twitter time to prove its value to you. It’s not instantaneous. Twitter is more about the conversation than the content. http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/sb10062550a-001/Stone
  13. Flush! Made a mistake? Just repost with a correction. Delete it if you want to, so that new followers won’t see it. http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3359/3436727439_ff00dbdb52_z.jpg
