An Effectively Dirty Way to Be Seen on Twitter

Leave a comment

Internet marketers are always on the lookout for unique ways to get their message out to the masses.  On Twitter there are right ways and just plain dirty ways to be seen. Here’s one that will get you noticed but maybe unfollowed at the same time.

Don’t spam with just links to your product page

We have all seen the Twitter user that sends only links to their product.  It’s like they think we haven’t seen the last 100 tweets with the same exaggerated claim. 

It used to be that you could post the exact same status update multiple times without cause for concern.  Thankfully, Twitter does not allow duplicate consecutive messages anymore.  Even if you use their API trying to scam the system you will be rejected.  Plus one (+1) for Twitter there.

A few months ago it was rumored that Twitter was going to start grouping multiple tweets from the same user that were tweeted in a short time span. At first I thought it might be a bad thing but as more and more people are catching on to this technique I think Twitter will eventually implement it.

Post several tweets in a short time span

Until then, you have a dirty way to attract attention.  It’s effective.  I would suggest that you try it cautiously and sparingly.  Otherwise, you will start losing Twitter followers right and left.

Below is an example of what it looks like, well sort of.  You can see how this user takes up practically the entire screen.   The bad part is that he is sending the same message over and over again;  SPAM.   Use unique status messages.  Be creative.

  (This is just seconds before I finally unfollowed this user.  Remember I said use with caution!)
