10 Ways Businesses Can Fail Spectacularly At Twitter

It can be difficult to know your social media strategy is truly adding value or whether it’s working at all. However, you should have no trouble knowing when your Twitter account is actively working against you.

Each of these companies had a flawed understanding of how the Twittersphere operates and were forced into defensive mode to salvage the brand when a Tweet backfired. Learn from their experiences and think twice before you tweet.

What I Have Learned From Writing 2,000 Articles About Twitter

Yesterday, I wrote this article about Twitter. Nothing particularly unusual about that, as I’ve been writing about Twitter now on a near-daily basis for more than four years.

But this event did represent a benchmark of sorts, as that post was the two thousandth article that I have written and published about Twitter since February 19, 2009. Two thousand is quite a number. I think I’ve probably written more articles about Twitter than anybody else, like, ever.

New To Twitter? Don’t Worry, You Already Know How To Use It [TWITTER TIPS]

Twitter comes with a pretty steep learning curve. When you’re brand new to the network, or still on the outside (looking in), it can sometimes feel a little like this private club that everybody gets except you.

You might think that you’re too old and set in your ways. All this social media stuff? Well, that’s something you couldn’t possibly understand. Right?

What I Have Learned In 4 Years And 1,180 Articles About Twitter

Today is my Twitter birthday. My 4th, actually – I signed up for the network back on March 8, 2008.

As I wrote about earlier in the week, I certainly did not take to Twitter immediately. It took me a while to get it – after an initial burst of modest activity, I dropped off the network entirely for six months at the tail-end of 2008. But then, all of a sudden, something clicked. Like magic. And I’ve never looked back.

5 Mistakes You’re (Still) Making On Twitter

Twitter comes with a fairly steep learning curve, and it can take a while for absolute newcomers to get to grips with what the platform is all about.

Indeed, the process of ‘getting Twitter’ is a thing and in and of itself. Some people understand the network before they even sign up. For others, it’s a lengthier journey, and one where they often turn to many social media gurus, looking for short fix, quick and easy answers.

This is a mistake. Ergo, further mistakes are made. Six months pass, and suddenly to other new users it’s YOU who is the ‘expert’. It’s you who has all the answers. And so the cycle repeats itself, ad infinitum.
