The Twitter Mirror; Does It Measure Your Worth? [REBLOG]

One of our most read posts is Beirut’s “Why Do People REALLY Tweet? The Psychology Behind Tweeting!” and it tends to illicit a varying range of reactions to it. Dr. Shawn was one of those people who stumbled on it and couldn’t help but call it a “load of donkey dung” but it was written in such a way that made us interested in contacting Shawn and getting him to re-post some of his articles over at our blog because he’s a man with a perspective.

It was interesting to read his blog and get an insight into how medical professionals use social media and how it’s impacting their business, communication, and how they tame s0cial media to meet their needs rather than follow the crowd when it comes to its usage. In this post he shares with us how he utilizes Twitter, and what he wants to achieve with his usage of the service.

10 Tips for Keeping Your Twitter Followers Hooked on You!

Noise. Noise. And some more Noise… This is what the social media arena has become: a place filled with noise! However, the noise levels vary between one social media platform and another and this is obviously related to the number of people you “communicate” with and the reasons for that communication!

Tweeps just hate Twitter noise!

When it comes to Twitter, and especially when you have a product or service to promote, it is kind of difficult to limit the degree of noise that comes in between your and your “followers”, making it sometimes impossible to get your message across!

Therefore, I have decided to share with you ten simple tips on how to cut through Twitter’s noise clutter and keep your target audience hooked!

1. Please, please, cut the crap!

We all should know that there is nothing called easy money. Therefore, you should refrain from sharing or spreading tweets such as: “The best way to make money online http://miniurls.it/qYTNe4“. Not only is this kind of tweet considered spam, it is also annoying and can easily demolish your Twitter credibility.

2. Know your followers:

And no, I don’t mean start making house visits to each and every one of them! I am just asking you to take some time, visit their blogs or websites, know what they are trying to achieve from their Twitter experience. It’s not all about you! Even in a virtual world, there is always tit for tat!
