How I Break The Twitter Rules and Get 108 Million Impressions

No automation rule Ten years ago the social media convention was that your did every thing manually. The convention and rules of behaviour back then was that you didn’t use tools to tweet but you did it personally. How I automate Twitter Today I use the Agorapulse Social Media Management platform that saves me a ton of time. Step 3: Add content in your content queues! There are three ways to add content to your content queue in Agorapulse. Frequency rule Many social media experts will tell you to tweet just a few times a day. I tweet at least every 15 minutes. The data shows that most people who are Twitter users only spend 20 minutes a day on Twitter. Multiple tweet rule Common Twitter convention also said in the past you should only tweet the same content once. Here is an example of evergreen content that we have been tweeting for years.

It was tough being different.

I was not doing things as they expected.

Breaking the rules.

They really didn’t like it.

Their comments and insults were daunting and confronting.

How dare you do that that.

You are doing it wrong.

You are a robot.

But I pressed on.

It was fun and intoxicating.

The Wild West.

The convention and rules of behaviour back then was that you didn’t use tools to tweet but you did it personally.

But there was a problem.

It didn’t’t scale and I didn’t want to spend my entire day tweeting.

I had work to do.

Initially I used very rudimentary tools that got me into trouble with Twitter.

So I ended up in Twitter’s naughty corner up and got suspended for a few hours on a Friday that I remember well.

Lesson learned.
