Ever wondered what could get you blacklisted on Twitter? Today’s post is dedicated to the top 10 tips I have for Twitter users who want to avoid getting unfollowed or blocked on Twitter:

  1. NEVER add your followers’ names in your ad tweets! It might seem appealing, it might seem lucrative but trust me, it is annoying and I have unfollowed and blocked many of those I was following just for that reason!
  2. Don’t just tweet rambles! Twitter is an endless stream of information and if you don not provide something valuable every now and then, you will eventually be unfollowed.

Here are 5 reasons why:

1. Recognition: It has been proven that human beings are wired in a manner which allows them to recognize and remember faces. Therefore, if you use a picture of your face in your avatar, you have a higher percentage of being remembered by your followers.

Tips for Choosing Whom to Follow via Tweepi (2)

Welcome to the second post dedicated to helping you choose whom to follow based on your friend’s  followers’ list.

Following Tweeps

Following Tweeps

The difference between @user’s followers and @user’s friends is simple: The former shows you a list of the user’s followers whereas the latter shows you who the user is following.

@user’s friends is mostly used when you find a person who is just so knowledgeable that you say to yourself “Whomever he’s follow has got to be just as smart. I need to follow them too!”. That’s what the Follow by friends is for.
