  • Best Practices

  • Always be linking—“inform.”

  • Always be responding.

  • Always be getting retweeted.

  • Dogmas to Ignore

  • You should “me-form.” You can but only if you’re Lance Armstrong.

  • You should not repeat tweets. You shouldn’t if they’re boring, and you have only 100 followers. You can if they’re not, and you have thousands of followers.

  • You should not automate tweeting with feeds. You shouldn’t if you don’t want to have a life, but you can if you do.

  • You should not use ghosts. You don’t need ghosts if you’re omniscient, but more smart people looking for good links is always better.

  • You should make everyone happy. If you’re not pissing someone off on Twitter, you’re not using it right.
