A Dozen Do-Nots: Twitter

With Twitter’s popularity rising at the same rate as my curiosity and interest in it, I decided to put together my own list of things to avoid while Tweeting.  With that, I present the Dozen Do-Nots of Twitter.

A Dozen Do-Nots:  Twitter

  1. Do not ReTweet (RT) without giving credit.
  2. Do not tweet porn.
  3. Do not imply that your bit.ly’s go one place and then send them somewhere else.
  4. Do not make public what should be a Direct Message (DM).
  5. Do not follow ex-boyfriends or girlfriends.
  6. Do not take it personally if no one picks up your hash tag.
  7. Do not promise those you follow that you can help them make thousands of dollars with a MLM.
  8. Do not use profile pics that are offensive.
  9. Do not tweet “is” as your status.
  10. Do not forget to say thanks for the RT.
  11. Do not insult others.
  12. Do not tweet porn (it is so annoying it is worth saying twice).

A Dozen Do-Nots is part of an on-going series.  The idea is to take a topic common to many and present a dozen things to avoid.

Others in the Series:


Being a Humble Person

Going on a First Date

Meeting Someone for the First Time


Writing a Sermon



Making Your Wife Happy

Marriage Communication

Church Planting
