If you do not think Twitter is important when building and maintaining your brand, here is a good reality check.

This article includes some Twitter tips, as shown beltwitterow.

• Do be authentic. It’s what social media is about.

• Don’t be a robot. Automated corporate messages are not respected here.

• Do include a transparent bio on your Twitter page.

• Don’t forget that a tweet is forever. There is no real taking it back from the twittosphere.

• Do listen to your audience. Know what people are talking about before you tweet.

• Don’t bring up politics or religion unless that is part of your brand. You will alienate followers.

• Do follow people in your industry

• Don’t rant about other companies or people.

• Do get involved in conversations. No one wants to follow someone who just broadcasts and doesn’t interact with others.
