If you’ve used Twitter for any length of time, you’ve no doubt developed a few social media pet peeves.
Here are some of mine:
You know who I’m talking about: Those people who spout off their own stuff but don’t read, respond to, or retweet others. I’m not interested in just more noise in my timeline. I want to follow those who genuinely engage with others. Keep the social in social media.
Lack of original thought
If your timeline is only filled with @replies and RTs, it can be equally frustrating. I can’t help but wonder if you ever have an original thought of your own.
Utterly shameless self-promotion
I can’t stand when people retweet kind things people say about them. It’s the online equivalent of high-fiving yourself when you do something great. Knock it off already!
On principle alone, if your tweet includes “Please RT”, you will not get a retweet from me. Let your powerful idea speak for itself; people will be compelled to share it if it resonates with them in some way.
I honestly don’t understand how this practice still exists, but yet I continue to get them. “Thanks for the follow. Don’t forget to check out my blog!” Are you kidding me? So impersonal and rude.
I know 140 characters can be limiting, but plz dnt mke me wrk so hrd to fgr out what ur tryin 2 say as if ur 12 yrs old. Be creatively concise, but don’t butcher the English language.
There are those people who get tons of @replies, but they consistently only answer their small group of friends. Flashback to middle school. Grow up and engage outside your elitist circles.
Any tweet that has to do with Justin Bieber
Sorry, I couldn’t resist…
