Twitter is a great place to establish the reputation of the user. It is not good to mix up the business stuffs and personal materials with a single twitter account. I came across many users of twitter who are blending all the things in their twitter account which makes the purpose of the twitter meaningless. Tweeting the interesting links, stimulating questions, humorous posts and current affairs would shape the twitter more valuable in the online world.
