DAY 1 – Monday

Flush

Most diets will have you go through your cupboards and toss all your junk food. We’ll need to do that with your Twitter account as well.

Profile Settings

  1. Profile Picture
  2. Your profile picture says a lot about you. Make sure it’s saying what you want.

  3. Name
  4. Use your actual name. You want people to find you when they Google your name.

  5. Location
  6. Put your city and state.

  7. Website
  8. Put the URL to your blog. If you don’t have one use the url to your Facebook or Linkedin.

  9. Bio
  10. Use third person when describing yourself and be sure to type your name in the bio. This will also help for Google results. Be sure to give potential followers a reason to follow you. Give them an idea of what you might be tweeting about.

  11. Facebook
  12. If you have a Facebook it can be nice to link them to save time. However this is really meant for casual users. Twitter and Facebook are different beasts and what will make you a Power User on Twitter will make you an annoying jerk on Facebook. So what I’m saying is keep this feature turned off while on the Twitter Fitness Program.

Email Notifications

  1. Activity on you and your Tweets
  2. Check mark all of these. You are in extreme growth mode. You need to be notified when someone is interacting with you so you can respond and engage.

  5. Updates from Twitter
  6. These settings are up to you.
