Twitterquette 101: Lesson Three

When you are posting on a Twitter account you manage for someone else, do not tweet to your personal account and respond to yourself. Why not? Well, you are not really engaging and fully taking advantage of the Twitter experience.

One of the many great things about Twitter is the networking it allows you to do. By tweeting to yourself, from yourself, you are not really networking. You already know yourself! Twitter allows you to meet people that live in different cities, states and countries. So narrowing down who you tweet with, and by only tweeting back and forth with yourself, limits your endless opportunities to network. I am not saying that talking to yourself is bad, but when you have the ability to connect with someone that is thousands of miles away, why just tweet to yourself?

So what do you think… is tweeting with yourself pointless when you are running two Twitter accounts? Does it limit your networking opportunities?

    Um… yes it is pointless to twitter yourself. I feel like if someone is doing that it’s to look like they have social connections with someone when they dont. or maybe just to get attention. Either way talking to yourself via twitter or facebook or anyone other social media is completely pointless. Go write in a diary or look in the mirror if you need to have a one on one with yourself. Dont share it with the whole world through social networking.
