I was writing another post about blogging and I went off on a Twitter tangent (inspired by no one in particular) so here you go. Nice and bite size:
→ Don’t label anything as ‘BREAKING NEWS’ if it’s no longer breaking. On Twitter news is only really ‘breaking’ for about a minute, tops. I recommend just avoiding the phrase entirely unless you are for sure on site and bringing the news to the internet.
→ Avoid clickbaiting question tweets. “Guess who might be starring in Episode VII?’ is not cute when the answer is ‘Benedict Cumberbatch‘ and it’s been a day. (Or already denied.) Your audience will not appreciate you trying to fool them so transparently. Start following the fabulous @HuffPoSpoilers to see some particularly heinous examples.
