What a Business or an Entrepreneur Should NOT DO on Twitter

Lately we discussed the most important TO DOs on Twitter, i.e. optimizing Twitter profile, what to tweet, how to keep Twitter page of a business engaged and so on. Now it’s the time to know some NOT TO DOs.

The list is very simple and here it goes;

1- You don’t need to follow back every other person that follows you.

2- Do not overuse #hashtag in tweets; it is meant to make your tweets easy to find in relevant conversations only.

3- Don’t let influencers unattended; use lists grouped by industry or topic to follow them.

4- Do not make private lists, keep them public so members know that they’re added and they will respond.

5- Do not spend too much time on twitter; using tools like Tweetdeck, Grabinbox etc will save a lot of your time.

6- Do not block people; it doesn’t “block” them from your tweets, rather removes them from your Twitter stream.

7- Do not spam; a tweet with lot of mentions and a link to your website is deadly spammy.

8- Do not send auto-DMs (Direct Messages); they may unfollow you.

9- Do not be private; Twitter is public and people like to be public, so avoid DMing and other ways to get private.

10- Do not favorite every other tweet; and especially those with mentioning someone.

11- Don’t be negative; in just any sense. Everyone wants to be surrounded by positive people and organizations.

12- Don’t prolong; such conversations should be taken on your business email or relevant department’s email.

13- Don’t refollow; those whom you just unfollowed should not grab your attention again and again.

14: Don’t be unreal: don’t tweet about anyone/anything that you cannot do face to face.

Depending on situation you may encounter a lot more silly mistakes on your Twitter business profile, however avoiding the above mentioned ones will make the path more clearer.
