Frank Viola blogs on 10 Twitter Mistakes that Make You Look Clueless:

In the spirit of “do unto others,” I’m writing this post to pass on what I’ve learned. Some of these things are mistakes I’ve made myself. Others are things I intuitively knew were bad practices when I first started out, but I keep seeing people practice them.

I’m no expert on Twitter (I don’t know if such people exist), but I can pass on what I’ve learned and have observed.

  1. Repeating the same tweet over and over again.
  2. Repeating the same tweet multiple times, tagging all the people you want to see the post
  3. Retweeting compliments and posts that extol your own work.
  4. Only tweeting your own work.
  5. Asking questions that demand long answers
  6. Overwhelming your Twitter followers with too many tweets in a day
  7. Not thinking before you tweet
  8. Never Retweeting others
  9. Never checking or responding to your Direct Messages (DM)
  10. Tweeting things that contain no value for your readers
