  49. 49. The 11 Commandments of Twitter for companies We can articulate the company vision in 140 characters or less, minus PR puffery and cliché. We are willing to give credit to cool, innovative, or thought-provoking ideas, even if coined by someone else. We are willing to challenge a potentially destructive position even if our position generates criticism. We are willing to listen to and engage with others, even if "others" = employees, customers, or activists. We will not get carried away, never tweeting about a fresh "cuppa," or worse, some banal corporate achievement. We will dedicate time each week to reading what others have to say and promise to retweet ("RT") the most clever, valuable, and even humorous. We will never include in a press release, speech, or annual report our "Twitter followers" figure, no matter how tempting. We actually have something meaningful to say. If we don't have something to say, we'll find the person in the organization best suited for speaking/tweeting on behalf of the company. If we cannot live up to these commandments we will reflect on whether corporate marketing is the right role for us. We will use our Twitter channel not just to bump out cheery news, but to keep customers informed in the event of bad news (i.e., a product recall, a hostile take-over, a PR crisis), too.
