- Limit your number of tweets per day to a certain number. Use them wisely.
- If you get close to the limit, start saving tweets for future days.
- If you want to say more online, find interesting blog posts and leave insightful comments. Comments that require work outside of composing the comment tend to be insightful.
- Exceptions should be exceptional.
Backstory: I’ve lost readers (sounds less narcissistic than “followers”) by tweeting too often. I’ve changed how I’ve tweeted since I read Gwen Bell’s twitter bio, which used to say that she was limiting her number of tweets to a certain number per day. Sometimes I still have been tweeting too often, though. As I started blogging more regularly, the idea to switch from tweeting to leaving comments on blogs came to me.)
