Twitter – Is it the new spamming factory?
However, unfortunately the common ‘flu’ of misuse of social media – spamming intentionally and unintentionally has infected Twitter.
What I would like to focus is on the unintentional side of Twitter spamming.
The problem is there are huge group of Twitter users who are simply keep tweeting their site’s links without using Twitter for socializing purposes.
It is not entirely wrong. However, it will not the true spirit of twittering which the core reasons for its existence socializing and spread news in fast and simple way.
For me, by only tweeting links from our WordPress blogs such as, it will make Twitter to be a site fills with links which I believe if the trend continues, it will degrade Twitter and make those links to be meaningless.
This is because by sending to many links into Twitter without doing the core purpose of the Twitter’s existence which is communicating, people who serious about twittering will probably get fed up because all those links will distract and sometimes to the extent, annoyed them.
In my opinion the best approach is to have tweets of both worlds – tweet and communicate with others by offering helps to others and promote our WordPress blog’s links. I believe through this approach, this will help us to build our credibility to be a Twitter user with credibility. This will definitely help us to built followers of both sides – Twitter followers and WordPress blog readers.
There will definitely not a problem if we try to monetize our tweet such as through Sponsored Tweets as with the strength that we have built through the approach that I suggested above, it will not definitely affect our credibility. This will not only help us to generate new income stream as if we have built our strength of credibility in Twitter, even our followers will help us to promote our monetized tweets – just like what happened to John Chow.
If you decide to adopt this approach in improve your communication and increase your participation rate with Twitter, I would like share you with one of my earlier post which I am confident that you will learn something out of it – Generate Fresh and New Blogging Idea through TweetDeck. In this post, I will guide to how to use to TweetDeck in get to know with new Twitter user and help others who need helps within the same interest for example about WordPress besides helping you to generate fresh and new blogging idea.
I hope you can find your focus in using Twitter. If you want to be loved and followed with loyal and supportive Twitter followers, I recommend you to use my approach. I am confident you will earn and benefit something out of it.
By the way, feel free to leave your opinion and says on my opinion about this ‘unintentionally’ spamming in Twitter and my approach to improve our credibility in Twitter.
