  • If you do this, please label the tweet as an old post. It’s incredibly frustrating to click over to someone’s blog, read the entire post, SHARE IT, and as you go to comment you realize the stupid thing is two years old. Personally, I think anyone using Twitter like that doesn’t value marketing or their followers.
