The sheer amount of information that comes through Twitter can be overwhelming, but you can refine it in a few different ways. For example, you can tailor Twitter suggestions for who you might enjoy following based on your Web searches. Just click on Settings/Account/Personalization, and then click on "Tailor Twitter based on my recent website visits." Twitter will then suggest people and organizations followed by others who visit the same sites.

re: 10 Twitter Power Tips
Thanks for the comment, Mark. You're right, and your advice is something I have passed along myself in past articles--I should have added that context here, as well. This should definitely be done selectively. With that said, there are plenty of times that I have posted the same exact thing once on Facebook and then on Twitter (such as when I share my articles).

re: 10 Twitter Power Tips
Nice tips, except for the last sentence in Connect Your Accounts: "Then you can write once, post on multiple platforms."

That is something you really DON'T want to do. Each platform is different in terms of format and expectation. And you probably even have different audiences on each platform.

While there are some benefits to connecting your accounts, and there's nothing wrong with the occasional cross-posting, in general one should avoid posting the same exact material to different networks. If you're going to do it, do it on a case-by-case basis; definitely do not set things on auto-pilot!
