I’ve been on Twitter for a while now. I’ve pretty much gotten it down. I’ve gotten good at keeping my messages under 140 characters without much of a problem. I know how to reply, how to send direct messages, how to find people to follow.
I tweet several times a day. I try to spread re-tweets out since I know people sign on at different times and by the time a follower signs on, your first or second tweet about a subject or blog is long gone from their view. I tweet about my blog, new things on my site, other blogs I stumble across and like, my co-op blog, publishing news, writing tips, and occasionally I tweet something personal.
I’ve noticed some folks tweet mostly about personal stuff, like what they ate for breakfast, whether it’s rainy or sunny, where they are as they type, and so on. Some folks talk about a blog or site, but don’t give the URL so followers can visit.
What about you? How often do you tweet each day? I probably do anywhere from 5 to 10. What do you tweet about? How much time do you spend finding people to follow? Do you use Twitter for socializing or business?
How do you Twitter?
