Here are some quick and handy tips for Twitter users; worth a look, whether you use for Twitter for business or pleasure (does anyone really enjoy sparring with Twitter trolls? Maybe you’re the exception!)
Some of these will sound very obvious to a lot of you. But some people may find there are some they didn’t know. Also, reinforcement is key. You may know something to be the case, but a little reminder now and then may still be useful.
Don’t make a large number of different retweets in a short time, or you may be penalized. (Sadly not in a monetary way; more like your account gets suspended, because Twitter mistakenly thinks you are doing some kind of automated activity!)
Find your springboard!
Remember that if you engage with people who have a lot of followers, more people will probably see your tweets.
Think about your ratio!
You should be careful you don’t have too many original tweets or retweets.
