Unruffle your feathers, my fledglings. Twitter’s response to all the squawk about using Twitter for nefarious purposes affects very few of us. Especially if you’re tweeting “nicely.” Most of the changes apply to people who post to several Twitter accounts, which is not most of us. Most of us just have one Twitter account (and handle/name) and are thankful that we can get the word out about what we do or sell without subjecting ourselves to the aggravation needing to have lots of Twitter identities.
You can’t post the same tweet simultaneously in multiple accounts. If, by chance, you do happen to manage several accounts (i.e., you’re a corporate social media manager) your life just got harder. You also can’t simultaneously Like, Retweet, and/or Follow.
If you use a service such as Buffer or Hootsuite that allows you to schedule tweets into the future, you can’t repost the same tweet over and over. It’s considered spammy. So just be creative and mix the words up a bit in your subsequent tweets.
If you have some standard phrases that you use too often for replies or mentions, you could get your wings clipped. Twitter’s algorithms tie your name/handle to words you use and might think you’re a robot doing bad things.
Not too scary. If you have any questions about anything to do with Twitter, don’t hesitate to ask. I love your questions.
