10 boo boos by Twitter newbies


Are you a Twitter newbie? Do you have a friend who is a Twitter newbie? Are Twitter newbies flooding your feed?
Not to panic. There’s nothing wrong with being a newbie, but to prevent you from making the common mistakes, Social Media Today describes 10 of them. Here are just a few:

2. Desperately Following
If you’re following hundreds of people and only a few dozen are following back doesn’t that send a message that you desperately want followers but aren’t getting them?
