Hints + Tips - Twitter

I'm a huge advocate for the us of twitter, especially as an artist and in my full-time role for a charity. Though like most things there a general rules of etiquette, even though they may not be written in stone, they are a good rule of thumb. Here are 10 guidelines of etiquette relating to twitter that I feel are worth jotting down.
  1. Take the time to fill out your profile before you get started, personalise your profile
  2. Don’t post anything you wouldn’t want your mother to read
  3. Connect with the people you follow and it will increase the value of using twitter
  4. Build your network slowly and carefully, it's not a numbers game, it's like most good friendships - quality over quantity
  5. Don’t post so often that you will flood your follower’s stream, especially with unrelevant content
  6. Try to avoid abbreviating your message so much that it becomes illegible
  7. Interact and reply to other users when you have something useful to add
  8. Be honest about yourself, let your personality shine on through
  9. Thank users when they offer you advice to a problem or question you may have
  10. Have fun, if your not enjoying it close your account, if you are then keep on tweeting!
