342 – Five Tips For A Relational Approach To Twitter & A Conversation With Scott Stratten
Summary: Five Tips For A Relational Approach To Twitter In several recent episodes of Podcast Answer Man, Erik Fisher and I have discussed our desire to get back to using Twitter the way that we did in the old days. The main problem, however, has been that it is increasingly difficult to use twitter in this way due to the trend where the average user has made it a practice where a majority of their tweets are automated, scheduled, and/or contain mostly links to their own and other people's content. It seemed that gone were the days where folks would actually use Twitter to share what is "going on" in their world, giving you more of a behind the scenes look into their lives. In this episode, Erik and I had Scott Stratten join us for a 30 minute conversation about the use of Twitter as a channel for real-time conversation. Following our conversation with Scott, we shared five tips for taking a more relational approach to interacting with folks on Twitter. 1) Decide Who You Follow Carefully. 2) Start out by Making Deposits / Investing in Others. 3) Use TweetBot to MUTE undesirable content. 4) Use Twitter Lists to your advantage. 5) Don't Interrupt people all day with your Tweets.
