I’ve been teaching a few courses lately on using Twitter, and the students always want to know what they should do. What’s the rule for tweeting links? How do I get more followers? When should I tweet?
I can give them guidelines, best practices and advice, but what I can’t give them when they ask these questions is a solid answer. And, while I might not know everything there is to know about Twitter, I know a lot. No, the reason I can’t tell them a hard-and-fast answer is not because I don’t know it: it’s because there are no hard-and-fast answers. The answers are up to you.
