Professionalism on Twitter
It is difficult in today’s world to balance online and offline lives. Twitter, for instance, is a portal to connect with friends and family. But there are dangers to this relaxed atmosphere. Twitter is a very public place that can be accessed by the professional world. If there is something bad on your feed, it could hinder you in the future. The article on Mashable warns that you should not be a robot. Yes, being professional is key, but constantly tweeting work related things hides the real you.
Another thing to be conscious of on twitter is sensitive topics. These are things like politics and sports, or things you have very strong opinions about. You don’t want to come across as rude or crude. Avoid posts that include too much information and know who your audience is. Interact with others and don’t take things too seriously, but make sure you are still being professional…in a fun way!
Having good behavior online can get a good image across to everyone, which benefits you in the end.
