PCMag.com currently has an article titled “Top 10 Twitter Tips for Beginners“. I was eager to read the article to see if there was anything really helpful. Perhaps it’s the “…for Beginners” that I should focus on, as these things don’t seem so much as tips as basic instructions.

Here’s what they listed as their tips:

  • Shrink Your URL’s
  • RT = Retweet
  • Direct Messaging
  • Use the @ Sign
  • Search For Your Friends
  • Categorize Your Tweets for Added Exposure
  • Share Pictures
  • Tweet from Your Phone
  • Pick a Good Desktop Client
  • Download a Mobile Client

Maybe you agree with me and think these are more instructions and not real “tips”. What tips would you suggest for people? Here are a couple of mine to get you started:

  • Tweet First, Follow Later – at least have a few tweets in your history before you start following more than a handful of people. People won’t follow you unless they can see what you’re talking about
  • Update Your Avatar – give yourself a personality and let us see who you are or put an image with your tweets. It makes following you and recognizing you much easier as you tweet
  • Complete Your Profile – more details about who you are will convince me to follow you or not

Now, what are your tips for users? Let us know in the comments!
