18 Twitter #Mega-fails
- Do not set up Auto DMs for new followers. It really annoys people.
Yes, Very Annoys.
- Do not “protect your tweets”. What’s the point of using Twitter for marketing if people can’t see your tweets?
What? Protect Tweets
- Do not set up a spam filter for your tweets. Most people won’t follow through with the filter.
What is Spam filter. Never Heard about it
- Do not schedule your tweets so that multiple tweets suddenly appear in your stream at the same time. You will be labelled a spammer and people will unfollow you.
- Do not automate tweets of your job postings. Pick a select few, customise each one, and spread it out across the week, alongside great content.
- Do not use anything other than a photo of yourself or company logo for your Avatar if you want to be taken seriously (eg. your pet hamster). People prefer to engage with people, so a photo of
yourself is recommended, even above a company logo if possible. Put the company logo on your Twitter background instead.
- Unless you’re a food blogger, don’t tweet what you had for breakfast/lunch/dinner. People don’t care and you’re wasting their time.
I saw many did that but only 10% of all see such thing.
- Stay away from banal tweets. I read one the other day that said “Went to scratch my nose and poked myself in the eye”. Immediate “unfollow”!
I have no idea
- And whilst I’m at it, don’t tweet about sex or religion unless this is your area of specialisation and that’s what you’re marketing.
- Don’t treat Twitter as a broadcast channel – do more listening and engaging than talking.
Most Thai start hardly follow anyone too.
- Do not overly promote yourself. Be generous, add value and share a lot. It’s the best kind of promotion you can do.
But technically, we don't know what is best for everone.
- Do not use CAPITAL LETTERS – it’s the equivalent of shouting and no-one likes it.
Sometime it's work.
- Do not post your tweet on other social platforms (manually or automatically) unless it is written appropriately for the other platform. E.g. If your tweet contains hashtags or @, remove them
for Facebook or LinkedIn. Also remember that the tone of each platform should be different. Best to customise for each one. BTW, keep the hashtags on Pinterest.
I got many reference from other plaforms.
- Do not use more than two hashtags in your tweets. Makes your tweets very unappealing to read.
- No-one cares where you checked in, or what you’re the mayor of on FourSquare. Stop polluting feeds with this trivial information.
Girls love it and it's good for Restaurant Business.
- Don’t set up an auto-tweet announcing how many people unfollowed you. Not cool. Not cool at all.
- Don’t send a tweet without checking your spelling. Spelling mistakes make you look totally unprofessional.
No, Comment. Most Non Native did I guess and Me too.
- Don’t share a link without crediting your source.
