There’s no right or wrong in social media. So, You need to work your way through the intricate & rapid Twitter communication style. Once you get the feel of it, you start recognizing the treasures found in Twitter. While other quickly updates their status, Twitter’s function today has surpassed that “I’m sitting on the toilet” tweet. The interesting part is that there are more of those feed in Facebook than Twitter.

Again, it takes time to realise the true potential of Twitter. There are, of course, a few basic things you need to take into consideration when tweeting. They might seem simple, but people tend to forget them – especially if these conducts doesn’t come naturally for you.

  • While people might get addicted of gaining more and more followers, a strong social network is not about quantity. It is about quality. Choose wisely people whom you follow and support as well as engage with them. Choose wisely the things you say and don’t be afraid to stand up for your opinions.
  • And choose meticulously what you share to your network! Then share. Share more. Share again. Sharing is Caring. You’ve heard this probably hundreds of times. But it never cease to be an absolute truth. If your only purpose is for others to listen to you, you’re life in Twitter will be abrupt.
