Twitter is possibly one of the easiest social media sites to use and it can be used for so many different purposes. You can use Twitter to gain a large following, to start conversations or to grow your blog traffic.
No matter what you are using Twitter for, there are some mistakes that you could be making which is making people run away from that follow button.
Mistakes You’re Making On Twitter
Ugh, how many of these do I have to receive a day?! There’s a very good chance that I will unfollow you if you send automatic DMs.
Only self promoting
I love it when people promote there blog on their twitter. I will most probably click the link and have a little stalk of your blog. However, if you ONLY talk about your blog posts, I will unfollow you. I want to get to know the person behind the blog too. If I only wanted to see links to your blog then I would just bookmark your blog and check up on it when I fancied a read.
Too many retweets
The fact that you can retweet is great! I love seeing funny posts that people want to share. What I do love is seeing people who don’t have anything to say themselves. I want to hear your own voice instead of just retweets.
Not using hashtags
It is said that if you use hashtags in your tweets then you are likely to reach almost double the audience. And I mean, that’s the point, right?! You want lots of people to see your tweets so use those hashtags!
