So you just took the plunge and set up a Twitter account. Let me be the first to say: Welcome to the 21st Century. You may even have a dozen people following you. Pretty cool, huh? Want more people to start following you? Here’s something (if you haven’t already done) you need to do right now.
Get rid of that standard profile picture!!!! It speaks volumes when you personalize your profile. What you’re saying when you don’t change the standard image issued with a Twitter account is you might be a spammer, a bot or even worse a purveyor of illicit goods.
If you can’t tell, I’m a little passionate about this. Please don’t take it the wrong way. Just understand that social media is about people connecting with people – not faceless avatars. Update your profile picture and lets talk about it. I’m on Twitter @jonfmoss
