    I did not think that it was possible to find 14 ways that anybody could suck at using Twitter. But I’m glad to say that you have proved me wrong Jeff.

    The absolute worst tweet I saw was from a ‘social media guru’ who blasted for hours on end an organization that was promoting a seminar about ‘connecting’ and they had not hired him to talk about connecting using social media. After his first post, the oranization said this years schedule of speakers was full but perhaps next year. He continued to blast them so he lost at least one follower and I am sure they will not hire him for future public engagements!

    Under the “never engaging” category, you could have subcategories like “never promote or retweet your followers” or “never thank your followers”, etc.

    I don’t think the Thou Shall Not Tweet at 4 am is really a social media sin. There are a lot of night owls/insomniacs like me who find it easier to find good content during those “off hours” – much less noise to filter. And surprisingly, I’ve had some good conversations at this time. Plus, we’re all global marketers, so it’s 9 am somewhere.

    Now tweeting at 4am on a Saturday morning after coming back from a bar is a different story….

    My social media class recently did a project on the good, the bad, and the ugly of social media campaigns. Most of the bad and ugly examples stemmed from seemingly minor mistakes made by employees, such as accidentally tweeting from their employer’s account instead of theirs. Even if the tweet is deleted relatively fast, the words are still out there and the negative backlash, as we have found in our research, can be detrimental to the company’s image.
