I use Twitter to learn a lot from others and contribute where I can!
I apply a few simple rules to my twitter usage:
#1 I follow-back everyone on Twitter
For different media, different ethics apply. For Twitter, follow-back is what we should do. This is how Twitter usage is policed too. So I simply follow-back everyone who follows me.
#2 A few conditions though:
- I use TweetAdder to help me manage how I follow people: If I choose to follow someone and they don’t follow-me back within 7 days, I don’t want to be part of it.
- I use HootSuite to interact with Twitter to help me de-clutter and focus on the conversations I want to have, with saved searches for certain keywords, hashtags or people and friends I enjoy to interact with. I use this on my smartphones too.
- to help me with cleaning up my Twitter lists and the many spam accounts, I use Social Oomph.
