SOCIAL MEDIA SAVVY – #RRBC STYLE! “What In The World Are You Retweeting?!” A Twitter Lesson


Sometimes, we need to stop and just think about what it is, we’re Retweeting.  This post is from nonniewrites.wordpress.com

Hello all!  Today is your lucky day!

Good to have some words of caution on ‘automating’ yourself on Twitter, especially with follow-backs – I always have a little bit of time out when someone ‘cold’ follows me (so I’m not already following them – because they’ve joined RRBC for instance) and just click on their handle to find out WHY they’re following me – if I find out they’re in the follower generating business there’s no way I’m following them back. Ditto if their tagline doesn’t make it clear why they’ve chosen to follow me, because there’s not much or any common ground there.
