Most people know that Twitter is a social media platform and most people also don’t know much more than that when it comes to marketing for creatives.
Online networking is similar in approach to in-person networking, there is a proper way of doing it and an improper way. Learning the proper way in online media goes a long way in making first impressions count.
Rather than go through a list of things one can do in order to succeed with online networking, we are going to do the opposite and share with you what NOT to do.

Here’s What Not To Do:

  1. Follow someone on Twitter and automatically ask that same person for a favor. Where’s the romance before you pop the question? Not only on Twitter but on all social media, there needs to be a fundamental understanding that you need to ‘get to know’ a person to some degree before asking them for something. What degree? Use your best judgment, as long as you are polite and ask in a proper manner.
  2. Have an automatic responder when someone follows you. Autoresponders are so inhumane and artificial that the person on the receiving end of it will most likely lose interest. Why not take the time to actually learn about someone based on their profile and respond in kind when you get a follower? This is time well spent.
  3. Liking someone’s Twitter posts without actually knowing what you’ve liked. You need to take the appropriate time to look before you click. Especially if you like something that you really feel the complete opposite about or something you may in fact not believe in. It all reflects on you and your social media presence.
  4. Constantly tweet negativity. No one truly wants to be around negative people. If you are always insulting someone or something or always posting negative comments, you will find yourself all alone on social media. There is nothing wrong with being honest and expressing your opinion but you also don’t need to put bad energy on your profile for others to see.
Hopefully, these four tips regarding interaction on Twitter will help you make the right choices in dealing with others. This kind of approach of what NOT to do is also common sense for other social media platforms as well. We encourage you to be mindful for all of your public profile accounts if you want to have a good reputation as a kind and caring person.
