If you happen to be a Twitter fanatic, you well know that some tweets aren’t as sweet as others, and some are downright annoying.
Joe Hefferon at 12Most has rounded up twelve offenders leaving undesirable droppings throughout the Twittersphere, and since – in the immortal words of G.I. Joe – “Knowing is half the battle,” we hope this list helps you avoid making any of these missteps in the future.
1. Hashtag fever
Some of us “noobs” are easily perplexed by over-tagged tweets. Clearly they are written by an App and not a human. When I see tweets like: “RT #snuggle #wormhole RT @LZ – No DM’s w/tags, #cornfire #antigen @WH not receiving, @dylanThomas #southeast RT http://23%8*~295-5″ – I just blink twice and move on. They look like the coded messages Jesse Ventura receives through his aluminum hat. Let’s lighten up on the blue-text, hyper-messaging services, shall we?
2. Political doomsayers
Right, left and libertarian; women will go back in aprons, children will starve, free enterprise will be abolished, the poor will be injected with leprosy through their SSI checks, old people will be sent to China to transport coal in their Rascals, the state will tax your urine stream, teachers will be racked, the republic is in jeopardy… ENOUGH! Don’t you people ever just notice a sunrise, have a great slice of pizza or, perhaps laugh — ever?
