The tweet below is spot-on
I have tweeted and deleted plenty of useless content.
Often this is due to the fact that Twitter is not a realtime messaging app but I nonetheless want to engage with the people in it more and more casually.
Sometimes it is because I don’t think before sending out a reply.
Tweets instead are permanent short thoughts. Think of them as short blog posts.
The Secret of Tweeting Wisely
Recently I started to practice better and less tweeting.
The secret sauce seems to be to compose a tweet or reply and then stop and think:
Will this be relevant and valuable in 5-10 minutes? How about 1 day? 1 week? 1 month?
If the answer is Yes then I will press the button otherwise I will save to draft or discard.
