I’m kind of a Twitteraholic (check me out @cbreecopy).
I aim to help my Twitter followers by tweeting useful information — good articles I find on the Web, lessons I have learned in business and in copywriting, etc. One of the things I do regularly is tweet simple copywriting tips that can be employed by copywriters, creatives and business professionals alike. One of these tips got passed along by seohosting.com’s Eric Brantner in his article, “33 Copywriting Tips Found On Twitter.”
This article is pretty cool, and not just because I’m in it. It’s cool because it’s meshing content from two social media — a blog and Twitter. It’s cool because it gives recognition to some good tweeters out there. Yes, Twitter has its fair share of annoying spammers. But, there are also some noteworthy Twitter users that can be great resources.
For example, I was recently having troubles with my Web site. A simple tweeted cry for help and two very helpful Web-savvy tweeters were there to help me. (A shout out to @varickdesign and @russelljamieson for great advice. These are two Web guys worth following.)
When you come across an annoying Twitter spammer, just block them and move on. Don’t let these Twitter abusers ruin Twitter for you. Brantner’s article, like the Shorty Awards, is a refreshing reminder that despite spammers promising to DOUBLE, TRIPLE or QUADRUPLE your profits, social media are still wonderful information-sharing resources.
