6 Things About Twitter that Make Me Mad!

January 15, 2012

I love Twitter, I really do; I love how it connects you to people from all over the world, people who would never ever get the chance to meet otherwise! I also love how it helps you promote different products, services and people while having to stick to a certain number of characters which, naturally, teaches you how to be creative in a unique manner.

However, there are a few things about Twitter that can drive me (and many others) nuts. So, for today’s post, I will be sharing those things with you in order to help you realize what you should try to avoid when using Twitter so you will get less unfollows and more follows:

So what are the things that make me mad wen it comes to Twitter?

1. “So-Called Gurus” on Twitter:

Whether you are an expert in marketing or any other field, I think claiming that you are a “guru” is very pretentious and annoying. I actually know many so-called gurus who have less followers than regular, sharing and active tweeps!

2. Twitter Users with Eggs as Avatars:

I usually look at the avatars of those whom I intend to follow on Twitter. To me, an “egg” avatar is somewhat insulting in the sense that thousands of Twitter users took the time to make sure they have unique avatars while those with the egg avatars didn’t even bother. Here’s the thing: I will not follow you if you had an egg for your avatar, regardless of how active you are; others agree with me as well!

3. Bio-Less Twitter Profiles:

Your Twitter profile is your introduction to new followers as well as a great way to put yourself on the internet map, therefore, you should invest time in creating a strong bio for yourself. If you don’t, you will probably be unfollowed using applications such as Tweepi.4. Aimless Mentions:

Mentions are supposed to have a certain value or provide some type of gratitude or information, otherwise, they are just plain annoying! Try to always make your mentions count because otherwise you will cramp up your followers’ stream for no reason and that could easily get you unfollowed.

5. Tattletales:

One of the most things that annoy me about Twitter is that some Twitter users will mention you in tweets saying that you have unfollowed them when they have not been following you to begin with, which is childish and unfair as well. Therefore, before you go on making other tweeps look bad, make sure that you have put the effort into following them back.

6. Inactive Tweeps:

There are hundreds of inactive tweeps out there. Moreover, there are those who would follow you back and never talk to you or retweet you. Those tweeps do not deserve your follow.

Hope you enjoyed our list for today.

Looking forward to your comments and insights down below 🙂
