“I’m being bad-mouthed online”
How do you deal with this very public situation? Should you ignore it? Fire back with a tweet of your own?
What’s the best course of action when you find yourself wanting to defend yourself?
You’ll need to consider your next step (and tweet) very carefully.
Twitter is one of the top business tools (and social media options available) so why would any reasonable person try to annoy followers?
Most people don’t want o be annoying and certainly don’t want to be hated. Yet, like the rude dinner guest wiping their mouth with their sleeve and chatting with their mouth full, they simply don’t know any better.
Since people tend to notice the negative more, let’s finish our tutorial on what NOT to do so you won’t annoy and be hated on Twitter.
The point of using Twitter with your membership site is to build relationships you hope to convert into active members (or at least friends) so why try to annoy your Twitter followers?
Many people can be unaware of the annoyance they present. But eventually they annoy their followers so much, those followers leave and never buy anything, and at worse possibly badmouth the “Tweeter” in tweets of their own.
While there are plenty of tips on how to be a good Twitter citizen, knowing what not to do is even better.
Annoying people on Twitter doesn’t sound like the sort of thing you want to go out and do.
Yet, many new Twitter users unknowingly (or intentionally) do things that cause people to eventually stop following them. All in the misguided attempt to get more members for their site.
While it’s important to know what to do, knowing what NOT to do is even more important.
