Twitter can be great for information, laughs, and meeting new people. It can also be a great source of annoyance. Here are 3 #guaranteed ways to get people to unfollow you faster than sugar free gum loses flavor.
An active Twitter account is a positive thing. 500 tweets in 1 day is not. Try to monitor your TPH (tweets per hour) and keep it reasonable. If you are tweeting from an event and sharing real time news updates then sure, tweet it up. Regular day tweets however, should not be cluttered with tons of updates about what you are eating or watching on TV. You can tweet about those things, just don’t do it all day. A good range to shoot for is 3-50 max per day and that’s only if you’re providing value.
Conversing With Hashtags
This is #when #people #use #hashtags for #almost #every #word in their #tweet. I would prefer a huge list of hashtags at the end of the tweet but even that gets annoying. I get it. Uou are trying to save space and be creative with your character count limit. Still, I find myself saying “hashtag” in my mind when reading and that makes your over hashed tweet really annoying.
Vague Attempts For Sympathy
“So upset. Sigh.”
That is an actual tweet I read today. No details about why they were upset, just a digital sigh. What makes this kind of tweet worse is when you take the bait and engage and receive something like this, “Nothing. I don’t want to talk about it.” Then why did you put it on the internet?
These 3 annoying Twitter trends are usually done by annoying Twitter users. If you find yourself engaging in any of these actions, please do us all a favor and stop immediately. You’re ruining twitter.
