For the love of all that is good, please stop Tweeting

Posted in Twitter by headoflettuce on September 21, 2010

Today I was witnessing some tweets from people who just don’t get Twitter. I don’t follow you so I can get your daily plug, a link to an identical post on Facebook or what amounts to spam. I want to interact, I want you to engage me, I want you to acknowledge when I tweet you. Lisa Barone discusses two points in her blog post 6 Ways to Lose Customers, Credibility & Friends On Social Media under ignoring your audience and auto spam; great article in general.

While I am discussing the things I hate on twitter, I found another article by Naren Ubi that hits a bunch of my pet peeves, Top ten tweeter-types you must NOT follow on twitter with the biggest pet peeve of all being people who do not interact. Why be on social media if you are not going to be social, no matter what you think, you are not that interesting.

This is not spam me please, nor is it “I worship the ground you work on and will just sit here waiting for every word you tweet”. Be Social! If you are worried that I might be talking about you, read the articles, and if you are the one, change you habits. 🙂

    Great point. It’s all about being social and interacting. If you aren’t responding to your audience you’re probably having a one way conversation with, you guessed it, NOBODY.
