• How to Thank People on Twitter with TwoPens.com

    When I opened my Twitter account a few weeks ago, I discovered that my Twitter buddy, Cynthia Hartwig @TwoPens2, had featured me in her fabulous blog on TwoPens.com.

    I was so flattered and happy that my Twitter etiquette was appreciated and that my marketing karma was in good standing.

    I am really glad Cynthia covered this subject. Thanking people on Twitter is crucial to engaging your audience, but my biggest pet peeve is getting the 'thanks for the follow.' Especially when going to the person's timeline and scroll down to see 'thanks for the follow' for dozens of people. It screams BOT!, or worse, that I am just another notch on their follower count.

    If you're going to thank someone for following you, make it mean something. Visit the person's website and tell them how you liked it. Ask about their business, the weather in their part of the world, or a hot topic in their industry--anything but a lame-O 'thanks for the follow.'

    Cynthia's article provides real life examples of good and bad Twitter thanking manners. Don't forget to read her post if you're not sure if you are following social media best practices.
