Q and A Help
Still trying to get the hang of this Follow Friday thing, and avoid spam at the same time?
Answer: For me when I did Follow Friday in the beginning before this post idea, I did it for anyone that tweeted any of my tweets for that week, or tweeted me a compliment or that I had a conversation with. It was a small way to say Thank U again to people that were working Twitter correctly around me.
If you do that, and add as many people to one Follow Friday tweet as you can it won’t be annoying.
Question by @rsullivanlaw
What is the optimal number of content tweets a day that should be posted and what is a good ratio of original vs.shared?
Answer: There really isn’t an “optimal” number, but I will say 5 isn’t enough and 100 is to much haha
It comes down to how available will you be around the tweets you share. If you can only be available for 10 tweets, then only post 10 tweets.
Your goal is to be helpful and share great content, but doing that without “showing” yourself with those tweets is a mistake.
Try to stick to a 80-20 or at least a 70 – 30 ratio.
80% other peoples “shared” and 20% your stuff “original”
Question by @richiereveley2
How do you keep track of all your people to thank for RT’s?
Answer: I stay in my Interactions stream on Twitter most of the day, on my computer or if I’m out, on my phone. This way I see what is coming at me thru out the day like, retweets, comments, questions etc…
Then all I do is in between other things I’m doing I’ll check in to see if anything new has come at me and I reply.
It’s not hard to do, but it takes work, and being available. But that work is what will help bring you more success on Twitter.
