How to avoid being a spammer on Twitter

When I wrote the Decalogue on Twitter painful practices committed an unpardonable: I forgot to spammers, who are increasingly seem or what. Worst of spam on is often not only “unsolicited communication to sell you something,” but those who do not realize that copying and pasting the same message to several people mention to anything you are not talking about your product, service or project. You are terribly annoying to those who may have interest in it, away forever and messing headlong into the safe and rapid career of several blocks or in the best case, unfollows. Remember that if many users will block and report you, Twitter can close your account for spam according to their terms and conditions .

Should we stop talking about our products or services? Not at all. When you do what you love, when you are committed to their work is logical to speak of him, showing his enthusiasm and present to others what he has done, and what better way than using Twitter, one of the best tools for the dissemination of information I know to date. But how, oh how.

To avoid being a spammer on Twitter is essential to consider some points that we avoid creating us rejections and help us to be part of a conversation ecosystem where people really listen to you, something that is often difficult in these times of scarce attention .

  • Understands the conversation
    You know talk in real life, right? For in Twitter alike. Do not go around with a loudspeaker people repeating the same line constantly, nor shout (or put caps), or stop to answer who asks a question, but you’re part of a group that talks about the things that interest you, listen others and talks about his work telling details or situations that may be of interest to others, but without tiring.
  • Listen before you speak
    Do not talk about a topic to someone who has never shown the slightest interest for the same. The least before going to promote products or services is to find out the interests of the person you are addressing. Remember that we are people on Twitter, long before hearing.
  • Do not do what you do not want
    This universal maxim still works, also on Twitter. No mention of a user with the same message repeatedly, stop and stop cyclically follow every other day to get your attention, do not send over and over the same link galore (I repeat, in cold blood, and again, the same link) to the same person. If you have answered no you may not be interested in what you’re saying. Send her an email, introduce yourself, find other ways.
  • Do not post duplicate content
    It is terribly annoying to be reading the same thing over and over again, and believe me, unfollow button is used to these things very fast. Repeating content only make an effect of rejection in the minds of those who read your timeline. If you also create and use different accounts to post the same thing repeatedly, Twitter can be considered cause to close your account.
  • Be clear with your links
    Post links that lead to somewhere different to that suggested only make you earn the distrust of those who have ever followed. Do not post misleading links. One thing is to surprise your fans and quite another to sell one thing for another, especially if there is a business purpose behind.
  • Learn to use hashtags and not abuse
    Hashtags are one of the most useful tools that Twitter has to follow a theme and also to find people related to our interests. These tags can be very popular at certain times and for that reason are a way to be visible to people speaking about a topic. Learning to use them is to do it when the content of your tweet is a real contribution to that group. If you’re at an event, it is not mandatory that you include the tag in your tweets since absolutely everyone there. If something has been said on that label, you do not need to repeat it, if you want to do for your followers, do it, but removes the hashtag.
