I'm a Queeter to be honest - I've quit Twitter. But when I was doing it, I was thinking about such things...
|Use once an hour as an initial guideline |
If you post once per hour and I see that in your stream, I will never add you.
If you are in my stream and you suddenly start posting once per hour, I will immediately drop you.
If you post more than twice per day and the quality of the posts is anything other than excellent, I will drop you.
|This statement should be your motto “My interaction on Twitter should be driven by making myself valuable to my followers and those non following me yet!” |
Exactly. And nobody can do that every thirty minutes.
I think one key is deciding what Twitter is doing for you. I think there are various modes as, for example
- broadcast mode: you really aren't reading your stream, but you use it as a way to get info out. This works for ISPs, for example, who tweet system updates
- listen mode: you use Twitter to track chatter. Zappos is famous for doing this well.
Thinking about the mode you're in helps you define and refine your actions.
