Vorgestern warnte Don Alphonso vor 10 Dingen, die Twitter-User vermeiden sollten.Don Alphonso warnte vor einem zu naiven Umgang mit Twitter. Man solle sich immer der Gefahr bewusst sein, zuviel von seinen aktuellen Aktivitäten und Aufenthaltsorten preiszugeben.

Gestern brachte dann Nicholas Carlson diese Top-Ten-Liste von Twitter- Don’ts:

– Don’t say anything that might just as well be said in an email.
– Don’t forget how many people are listening. For example, do not say:                                                  „Oops, hope nobody notices the smell.”
– Don’t follow people you’ve never met.
– Don`t follow Jason Calacanis.
– Don’t add too many followers too fast. Like any dangerous recreational narcotic, one has to build one’s     tolerance before ignoring the Surgeon General’s warnings.
– Don’t expect timely and informative responses to your Twittered queries.   Or for anyone to read them.     Twitter is a heat sink for the unexpressed ego.
– Don’t Twitter things that would be better said in person. Example:
„@George, No, I won’t marry you. It’s the halitosis.“
– Don’t try share your political, religious or business views in 140 characters. It takes more words to            obfuscate how simple and derivative they are.
– Don’t follow Robert Scoble.
– Don’t follow bloggers who write about Twitter just to have an excuse to include a link to their Twitter account. There will hey will bombard you with links to their blog posts, because they are paid by              pageviews.
