Here are a few more tips to keep in mind: Oversharing: There is nothing worse than a feed composed of mundane tweets like "Driving home from work now" or "Just had a grapefruit for breakfast, yum!

Twitter is all about sharing your thoughts and interests, and if you're lucky you will be rewarded with a host of followers who actually want to listen.

Keep the details of your bodily functions and bedroom escapades to yourself as well. Self-promotion: Twitter is a social networking tool — a certain amount of shameless self-promotion is to be expected.
