The Twitter is not about you, it is about the community

Tuesday, March 31, 2009 { 1 Comments }

The first time I joined twitter it seemed like some useless web 2.0 project. Why should I write to myself!?
I didn’t get it at that time. Now I get it: Twitter is not about me, it is about the community.

I want to share some personal suggestions about Twitter:

  1. Put picture or avatar on your twitter page, you know how do you look like, we don’t .

  2. Put link to your web site/blog, so that we can learn more about you. If you don’t have web site/blog put link to your profile on Flickr, MySpace, Facebook …

  3. Limit yourself to 10 twitts a day. You are not only one who twits. And don’t do more than 2 post in a row. Give space to the other users.

  4. If you are following something like 4000 people, you probably don’t care what people are saying because you can’t follow 4000 people .

Final thoughts: Twitter is truly remarkable tool of communication it is my opinion fastest and most effective to get your thoughts on web. Twitter is now growing super rapidly and I think we should all respect the Twitter “eco system”.

I know it is challenging to have many followers and to spread the word very quickly but In my humble opinion you should try to build natural links with other twitters, share your thoughts like you share them with your real friends and give space to other users. And remember twitter is not about you, it is about the community.
