How often have you read in the twitter stream or in someone’s blog what you should or shouldn’t do? It’s constant, all these self-proclaimed Emily Posts of twitterquette will tell you; don’t followfriday, don’t thank for Retweets, do thank for Retweets, don’t try to sell yourself or products, the best way to sell yourself or products, and on and on and on. You know what? Do what you want, Twitter didn’t put them in charge of what Twitter is all about.
Twitter is many different things to many different people. That’s what’s so wonderful about it. There is a simple solution built into twitter if you don’t like the way someone tweets. You just don’t follow them. And if someone is persistent enough to bother you anyways, Twitter has another solution. You block them. That’s it. It’s really simple. Do what you want with your tweetstream, don’t let yourself be limited by what others decide you ‘should’ do. That’s it, and feel free to ignore this advice too!
