PR Connection #12

December 1, 2010 paigewalters

Twitter has completely taken off on the social media map in the past two years. While I do feel that your Twitter page is your’s and what you choose to put on there is your choice, I did enjoy these guidelines found in a blog on 101PublicRelations.com. Some of the guidelines I liked best were don’t pitch your business right out of the box, keep private conversations private, and wisdom is good especially if it is yours. I love wisdom quotes and quotes that are inspiring and uplifting.

The following are the list of ‘dont’s’ that the site provided:

  • In last week’s article we stressed the importance of NOT filling your Twitter feed with totally personal items that nobody cares about. Don’t greet the world when you get up, tell them what you had for breakfast, or when you’re going to bed. Unless you’re a celebrity, who people actually get paid for taking pictures of you doing those things, twittering on those subjects will just push people away.
  • Don’t do inside jokes that only a few people will understand.
  • Don’t complain about the world. Nobody likes whiners in real life, and they certainly aren’t going to continually follow you if you do it online.
  • Don’t use it as a place for spouting off on whatever subject is on your mind at the moment. Think, then write.
  • Unless your audience is following you because of your religious or political views, you generally should stay away from those subjects. Sorry, I know. You’ll never believe how hard it was for me to not hit the enter key after writing some amazing posts during the recent US election…
