Twitter’s Ten Rules

Yes, I just said there were no rules for Twitter.

So don’t think of these as rules. Consider them guidelines, a compass for pointing you in the right direction.

  1. Be human.
  2. Be humane.
  3. Be yourself.
  4. Be interesting.
  5. Be brief.
  6. Share.
  7. Laugh.
  8. Listen.
  9. Learn.
  10. Repeat.

As a Tweet, it looks like this:

TWITTER’S TEN RULES: Be human. Be humane. Be yourself. Be interesting. Be brief. Share. Laugh. Listen. Learn. Repeat.

…and that fits within 120 characters, which makes it easy for people to re-tweet.

Or, if you’d like, you can share it with this link.

Update:

Dan Walters, who writes Social Media Birmingham, has undertaken the task of fleshing each of these ten points into full posts.

Here is his series: Be human. Be humane. Be yourself. Be interesting. Be brief. Share. Laugh. Listen. Learn. Repeat.
