The Seriousness of Short Messages

The impact tweets can have is unimaginable. Young people aren’t aware of what they can get by using this tool, and they should be careful about what they write on Twitter, even more if they are journalists or they study  for it.

Before publishing something, you should know that everything you tweet is public, even if you tweet from a private account your tweets could be seen by everyone anywhere. So you have to be sure that you don’t harm or insult anyone and that the things which you say are true.

You also have to take into account that most of the working executives or heads, before hiring you, will probably enter to your Facebook and Twitter profile and take a look at your publications, photos and commets.

Students should define their purpose on Twitter, they should know why they publish something, what they want to gain by it, and to do it in a professional manner.

It is a good idea to use this tool to reinforce your online identity.

When you tweet about a live event or when you tweet a lot about the one particular topic, you should use hashtags or make your followers know what you are going to tweet and why.

Even if the maximun characters that you can use are 140, it is better if you write shorter posts, so followers don’t need to delete words if they want to retweet the message and edit it.

Moreover, if you tweet something that someone has tweeted before, what you should do is pointing the source, because it is not your original information, someone has published it before you.

Finally, one of the most important things on Twitter is to be reponsive. Don’t forget that everyone can see what you are saying online!

So, come on. Write and make people enjoy with your appropriate and witty comment!
