    Great article Jeff – I have developed a lot of good business relationships through engaging on Twitter. #9 and #10 resonate with me the most, but as with most social media platforms it is persistence that pays off.

      Thanks for the comments Heather. A lot of people think that social media is the silver bullet for their marketing woes. The payoff can be huge but it does take that persistent and consistent effort!

    Thanks Romany for the insights. One of the big benefits of social media for me is not just the business and marketing power but what you discover about yourself.

    Great tips Jeff, Another one I would include is “don’t change the focus of your account” … I built up a fair bit of followers when my account was primarily about some fashion accessories I designed, a few months ago I started tweeting about digital marketing and I’ve see a steady drop of followers daily. Also ,where do you find the time to write so often.

      Yes, changing focus would confuse many :)

    I’m learning to copy and paste and add my own bit to retweets, rather than Twitter’s retweet tool.

    #8 really struck a cord with me, I really have to examine if I’ve been connecting with my target audience.

    Great list of Tips. One thing I like to do and recommend is to cull your spammy and Egg followers that don’t tweet using Manage Flitter. I prefer to be followed by people who actually use Twitter for good and not evil (spam) so this tool helps me keep my following clean.

    I agree, much better to earn valid followers than to purchase. It’s a human interaction platform and best used by business relationship forming, so automation is best avoided in my view, to retain the personal touch and develop trust which leads to conversion. @lynncherylede & @wesocialmediau

    I’ve seen a couple references to 100 characters being the make-or-break line for retweets. I’ve taken that to heart. I can’t prove it works, but my goal for original tweets (not retweets) is to have 40 characters left after headline, hashtags and link. If nothing else, it forces tight writing.
