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!

Sit on My Facebook! – Internet “Love” Song by The Scribes [Video]

Once upon a time there was the love that we all knew, but then came a different kind of love, one which takes intimacy to a whole new level! This type of love is called the “internet love“.

In short, and without trying to glorify the topic, this generation of youth redefines love in terms of social media and internet terms, channels, tools and websites! Love is transformed from actions in real life to any other virtual actions such as poking, messaging, tagging, befriending of Facebook, tweeting and so on.

By chance, I came across this sarcastic video and it fully explains what I am talking about. I present to you: Sit on My Facebook!

What do you think: Do you feel sad about how love is being perceived these days? Do you agree that it is unnerving how social media and the internet use our feelings and emotions to grow and expand?

Looking forward to your comments below…
