I am still learning each time I read a Tweet on Twitter or make a mistake. Yet, there are bloggers like Problogger who has mastered some great Twitter techniques. For example, I attempt to post things that folks that follow me might want to hear. But I am careful to take time and retweet interesting tweets that are appearing at that moment.
When you think about it Twitter is just like face to face discussions in a group. When I facilitate a group I am careful to encourage the silent folks in the group to say something. At the same time I try to discourage domination by one or two people in the group.
In addition, most groups work best when the size is small and not huge. So, I am not under compulsion to have a BIG TWITTER LIST.
Well, I never want to be the person who just talks about me, me and more me in a group. Nor, do I want to be the quiet person all the time that does not feel my content has worth. So, those things stay on my mind when I am on Twitter.
Of course, I must admit, sometimes I go on Twitter when I feel like the pixels in my brain are frozen from fatigue. Then Twitter becomes therapy.
Enjoy this post by Darren Rowse who is one of the most authentic bloggers I know that makes real money blogging. When he talks about Twitter and blogging-I listen.
You are THE Twitter expert in my book! You guided me through my first tweet, but I have to confess I’ve been a reluctant student. I promise to reform and, with you as my guide, will get the hang of it some day!
You will be just fine. Send me a tweet every day for two weeks about an accomplishment.
