You are out of your mind.
Today I created a new Twitter account.
As you are well aware of, having multiple Twitter accounts is within your Terms of Service.
Just to refresh your memory (I know you are very busy and very important and might not remember such trivial things):
I created this account (@SheBizCafe) to post things that are specific to women business owners and work at home moms.
Naturally, I decided to tweet some valuable information before I started to promote the account.
So I looked up some of my favorite blogs run by other women and retweeted some of their posts.
After all, Twitter IS all about value, isn't it?
Imagine my surprise when all of a sudden I see a white death screen of account suspension:
I am sorry, did you just say “multiple unsolicited mentions“?
As in actually giving credit when sharing other people's blog posts?
I am speechless, which doesn't happen a lot when it comes down to writing blog posts; most of them are 2,000+ in length.
I think I am just going to leave it at that…
Oh, by the way, THANK YOU.
Thank you for being kind enough to actually give me a chance to tick two boxes verifying that I indeed will stop “abusing” the mention and reply feature and get my account back.
Unlike you did multiple times in the past, where my accounts were permanently suspended.
Of course, this time I didn't even have a chance to start using Tweet Adder to grow my Twitter followers in a very unspammy way.
I am off to fire up my Tweet Adder now.
If you want to suspend me again, at least this time you might have somewhat of an excuse to do it…
Best (through my teeth) regards,
PS Dear reader:
Using third-party platforms, whether it's Twitter, Facebook, Google, etc., for increasing traffic to your site should definitely be a part of your overall traffic generation strategy.
However, please remember that your ultimate goal is to bring those people back to your site as quickly as possible.
That's exactly what I do on Twitter.
Just published my new Slideshare presentation; if you don't know much about Tweet Adder, watch it:
On the second thought, watch it anyway; pay attention to how I transition from giving value to offering a discount and linking directly to Tweet Adder.
Did you know you can have live clickable links with your Slideshare presentation?
