Answer this question: Are you Tweeting to a relevant audience or are you Tweeting sweet nothings to a group of ‘followers’ who could frankly care less? If you can’t answer this question, you’re simply not reaching your potential via Twitter.
According to Entrepreneur — a group of researchers from some top U.S. colleges set up a website called Who Gives a Tweet? in order to collect feedback from anonymous sources about what makes a Tweet good, bad, ugly, etc. From this, the following simple bits of information about Tweets were revealed:
A “good” Tweet consists primarily of:
1. Questions to followers
2. Information sharing
3. Self-promotion (sharing links that you created)
Within all of this, Tweeting in good humor or tapping into people’s innate desire to laugh seems to be key.
A “bad” Tweet consists primarily of:
1. Presence maintenance
2 Current status updates
3. FourSquare check-ins (which users view as “totally irrelevant”)
Within all of this, Tweeting simply personal and totally irrelevant information seems to be the most off-putting.
