Your Tweets

Start getting some tweets into the system now. On the Twitter home page, it
asks What You Are Doing. Quite frankly many people don’t care until you
have built a relationship with them as a result of following. But there are
some good ways to get started. Follow some blogs that you are interested in
via an RSS feed to a feed reader such as Google. (Search these on Google if
you are not familiar with the terms. There is heaps of information on there and
could occupy an ebook of its own.) Start by posting links to interesting posts
on Twitter about them with a link to the blog post. For example: “Interesting
post on pest control in tomatos. Link”. Make sure you always include http:// in
the link and not just www so the link is clickable in the Tweetstream. If it’s a
long link, Tweetdeck has a facility to shorten it to a small url.

Another good way of starting out tweeting is with quotes. Do a search for
some quotes of interest and tweet these. Personal development ones are
great and also quotes by famous people. Here’s one I just found in the
Tweetstream as an example: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence,
then, is not an act, but a habit.” — Aristotle. There are thousands of these all
over the internet that you can use.

Whatever you do, at no stage of your Twitter career start posting sales tweet
after sales tweet. Your career will be short-lived if you do and people will
remove you very quickly. Twitter is about engagement, value and a social
experience. A constant flow of sales links is just not on. By all means post
links to your products or sites, but keep them to around 5% of your total
tweets at the most.

Another good idea with your tweeting is to keep religion and politics out of
them. These subjects can only alienate followers and you can lose them.
