A Useful Twitter Guide


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.

  2. Hello Nirmala,

    You have mentioned some good points here. Even though it can vary depending on the purpose for which the account is used.
    Like if an account is used completely for personal reason in order to keep contact with friends and relatives, then I guess “hi hello” is okay.

    One very important thing that you mentioned is not mixing up a personal account with a business account. Many people make this mistake.

    1. Yeah, agreeing your views, if the twitter account is created only for personal purpose, then it is ok. But blending all the stuffs together would annoy the twitter followers.
