Invite a user to Twitter - invite email@example.com The Twitterverse doesn’t have many rules, but there is such a thing as Twitter etiquette. Writing tweets of 140 characters or less isn’t the only guideline. Your experience on Twitter will be a positive one if you keep the following tips in mind:
Say what you think and are doing.
In general, try to keep tweets longer than one word so that your followers can understand you.
Listen to what your Twitter friends are saying.
Respond to Twitter friends when you can add value to the conversation.
Update your status at least once a day.
Fill in your profile and biography so that other people can know more about you.
Use your own picture as your avatar. If the picture that you use contains more than one person, make sure that people can tell which one is you.
Whenever you’re referencing another Twitter user, use his name with an @ sign in the front so that the user can see you mentioned him and so that other users can see whom you’re talking about.
Use hashtags to give context to updates that may not make sense otherwise. Twitter etiquette isn’t only about what you should do. Unfortunately, bad tweets and poor Twitter practices sometimes show up within microblogging communications. While you can’t really go horribly wrong on Twitter, you’ll make your life easier in the Twitterverse if you follow these guidelines:
When you first sign up and before you start regularly tweeting, don’t follow hundreds of people. If you follow someone, he checks out your profile to see whether he might want to follow you back; if he sees that you’ve tweeted once or twice and you’re following hundreds of people, he may think you’re just a spam account.
Start out slowly, following people you know and who know you. Then, as you start tweeting regularly, follow more people based on your interests.
Avoid using punctuation in your username. Typing punctuation on mobile devices is difficult.
Don't share information that you might regret making public.
Don’t send an update when a direct message is more appropriate — for example, when the update is meaningless to anyone except one person. If the person doesn’t follow you, you can send an update that contains her name, asking her to contact you over another medium.
Don’t feel the need to thank everyone publicly for following you. It’s a nice thing to do, but not always necessary.
Don’t think Twitter success has anything to do with your Followers count. The # symbol, called a hashtag, is used to mark keywords or topics in a Tweet. It was created organically by Twitter users as a way to categorize messages.
If you Tweet with a hashtag on a public account, anyone who does a search for that hashtag may find your Tweet
Don't #spam #with #hashtags. Don't over-tag a single Tweet. (Best practices recommend using no more than 2 hashtags per Tweet.)
Use hashtags only on Tweets relevant to the topic.
