Companies need to learn how to use Facebook and Twitter Together

I just unfollowed 2 companies this morning on twitter.  I have a third that is on their last strike.  I wonder who can guess as to the why.  Don’t worry, I will not make this complicated.

Listen up other companies!  If you insist on cross-posting facebook and twitter (this blog cross-posts to Twitter) then you have to remember that everything you do including the posting of photos will show up in both streams.  People do not appreciate their streams filled with spam.   I hate to be the first one to tell you but yes, 15 straight posts of pictures in my twitter feed is SPAM.

You may think I am being harsh or maybe you think that as an Internet company I should contact these companies and sell them on my knowledge of what to do and what not to do.  This could be a valid point but unfortunately I don’t think that would work.

Let me summerize this post in one sentence – Do NOT post multiples of anything to twitter in succession.
