Five Guilty Pleasures on Twitter That You and Your Company Should NOT Do
Although these are in no particular order, feel free to rank them according to your own Twitter standards.
1. Follow celebrities/ accounts that have nothing important to say, so they tweet.
Your clients can and will be very thorough. If they decide to look through your “following” and see an account like this you may end up with one less client, and even less credibility.
2. Post a link or picture without an explanation.
Your followers and potential followers are less likely to click on a link without an explanation, and if a picture does not make sense to them coming from your account you might just get un-followed.
Instead, include a little explanation and even a picture like this:
3. Using the same content from a connected account: Instagram, tumblr, flickr, etc.
If you are going to use the same picture, link, or video: make sure that the way you introduce, promote, or describe the content is different from your other social media accounts. Not only will it show more effort but using a different explanation or introduction can cause an Instagram follower to click on the tweet of the same picture they “liked” 20 seconds ago. Pretty cool right?
4. Posting promotions, and promotions only.
Although it is important to inform followers about promotions or events, having actual content on your Twitter feed can entice followers and seem a lot less aggressive and commercial-esque, versus:
Believe it or not followers and clients will not want to favorite, retweet, or quote promotions.
5. Using an excessive amount of hashtags.
