Jay Mohr’s Golden Rule of Twitter: Never Respond to Negativity

Jay Mohr, host of the eponymous show on Fox Sports Radio, is closing in on 250,000 followers for @jaymohr37. Besides having such a large following, his listeners on social media are engaged and find ways to creatively mention his sponsors in their tweets. In the latest installment of Mediabistro’s So What Do You Do? Mohr shared why people shouldn’t live in fear of Twitter.

“I would say the golden rule of Twitter is you cannot ever respond to somebody saying something negative to you,” he said. “It took me a good three years to learn that, and, even still, I’ll start to type something and be a sentence or two in before I realize, ‘What am I doing? Why am I answering this person?’ I’ve blocked about 3,000 people. I’ve made Twitter this ivory tower of Babel where people only say nice things about me.”
