This is such a dumb, bad post. I keep this now only to show how dumb I am. Also please note the use of “twitter” as a verb before “tweet” was in general usage.
OK, those of you that know me know I consider myself a social sheriff of sorts. So, I took it upon myself to put together some commandments about how to use Twitter. It just felt like a place begging for some guidance.
Thou shalt not twitter about traffic: http://tinyurl.com/55d4ww
Thou shalt not twitter about plane delays: http://tinyurl.com/6nxjsf
Thou shalt not send tweets saying you’re showing someone twitter: http://tinyurl.com/5smqse
Thou shalt not blame the link of Facebook and Twitter as an excuse to violate the commandments: http://tinyurl.com/67dexj
Thou shalt not have more than a 3-tweet reply (@username) conversation:
http://tinyurl.com/5wx7lq (pick one)
Thou shalt not make your first tweet in over 90 days an angry tweet:
Thou shalt not only use twitter solely to drive traffic to your blog (less than 1 in 10 non-blog related tweets is a good sign you’ve sold out): http://tinyurl.com/5fp2ok
Thou shalt not twitter tv and movie spoilers: http://tinyurl.com/5kkzj9
Thou shalt not twitter about a social event not all your followers were invited to (and felt they should have been): http://tinyurl.com/58s486
Why isn’t accidentally twittering instead of direct messaging on here? Because that’s like telling people a commandment of email is “thou shall not reply all when you don’t want to.” Which I would put on par with yelling “be careful” to someone who just fell down the (social) elevator shaft.
