Interesting tips. Since I am on Twitter for a long time, I have been following most of them. I am wondering why you said not to use every third party applications. Because only when you use the applications that you come across interesting application that will suit your needs.

You must also try Seesmic and Hootsuite

Nice Question John! I am talking about auto follow application which is used to follow random people. These tools doesn’t take care of those people who love to follow niche peoples. They randomly pick anyone from the Twitter sphere which may include spammers. So avoiding these applications are good for online reputation.

I agree with you that some Twitter third party applications are very useful.

This should be a checklist for Twitter users. This is my own experience: Twitter is damn hard to understand in the first month, because there are many tips to follow as you list here. But once you find Twitter is great for fun, you use it the correct way and can leverage it with ease.

Great tips for Twitter users.

Some of them may depend on how you’re planning on using Twitter though. Most of your tips are perfect for personal use but so many Twitter accounts are used for business these days. For example, selling something is so commonly tweeted that it’s expected by many. Sure, they’ll lose followers but the purpose of the Twitter account is to promote, promote, promote.
