Twitter Sins With Real Life Equivalents

It’s difficult to come up with an accurate title for every blog post. I can’t always be perfect. Although I must admit the title “Twitter Sins With Real Life Equivalents” isn’t half bad if I do say so myself. Anyhow, I know this post is a bit different from my usual ones focused more on writing and/or blogging. Just wanted to switch it up a bit to avoid boring you. Enjoy.

Spamming someone with DMs, short for direct messages.

More like texting someone one too many times.

Following someone only to un-follow them later and re-follow them shortly after.

This is equivalent to dating someone, breaking up with them, and making up with your him or her.

Spamming your followers by sending tweet after tweet with a few seconds in between each.

Real life scenario: never shutting up.

The above aren’t exactly sins. If only they were…

5 Things You Should Never Do On Twitter

It seems like almost everybody I know has Twitter. I don’t blame them. With that being said, there is etiquette and protocol to follow. It isn’t that hard to be respectful and have good manners online.

These are, in my opinion, 5 things you should never do on Twitter. Despite how tempting some of them may be.

  1. Spam people. Nobody likes a spammer. Not even the spammer himself.
  2. Promote yourself all the time. Especially if you are a writer.
  3. Insult or attack others. If you watch what you say, you should watch what you tweet too.
  4. Involve yourself in controversy. When is controversy ever beneficial?
  5. Get too personal. Enough said.
