Twitter Tips and Resources – Part 7

Posted on 08 November 2009

This is Part 7 of an ever-growing series of blog postings, each one featuring links to 10 useful articles/blog postings/videos/sites I’ve come across, about how to use twitter more effectively (and how NOT to use it). Here are the latest 10:

  1. “What Brands Ought Not To Do On Twitter” by Isman Tanuri
  2. “10 Tips for Social Media Marketers” by Paula Drum
  3. “5 Best Twitter Tips of All Time” by Scott Williams
  4. “Twitter Cluelessness” by Guy Kawasaki
  5. “8 Idiot Mistakes in Social Media” by Jessica Kizorek
  6. “Social Media is Not (Just) Twitter & Facebook” by Joe Manna
  7. “50+ Awesome Twitter Tips to Become a Pro” by Gautam
  8. “Twitter do’s and don’ts for brands” by Tim Bradshaw in the “Financial Times”
  9. “14 Insane Twitter Tips For Business” by Kim Redd
  10. Update, July 22, 2012: Sorry, the writer of this entry has asked me to remove it, “due to privacy issues”

By the way, I don’t necessarily agree with everything the writers of the above articles and blog postings say – read them and make up your own mind. For example, some people argue vehemently that you should follow everyone who follows you, saying that it’s mere common courtesy. I say equally vehemently that you should NOT feel obliged to follow everyone who follows you. Why follow bots, spammers, wannabe pornstars, time-wasters and pushy salespeople? I don’t think we owe them any common courtesy. Also, I don’t follow people who tweet nothing but inspiring quotes by other people. I can find those quotes on lots of websites, thanks very much; I’d prefer to hear about the twitterers’ own lives, opinions and experiences.

Would you like to recommend any other good twitter resources?

Happy tweeting!

Kay Ross
