tweets can not be longer than 140 characters + spaces .. including RT @yourtwittername & shortened URL you are tweeting
Twitter is becoming more vigilant about how peope are tweeting.-- I have seen more people booted off recently-- meaning please carefully contruct your tweets so you aren't spamming people You need to RT something from someone else.. at least 1-2 things.. If you post one thing-- then RT one thing. If you use this list regularly, try varying up what you RT.-- and if everyone RTs your post.. you kind of have to deal with the karma of it all. meaning.. please find something of everyone's to RT because if you don't, they won't continue to RT you.
. .. if you don't RT on a fairly even basis (like you post 8 RTs and you only RT one back.. that's not even.. however if you post 6 and RT 3, that's more even. get it?)
Other Notes 1) Post to the WEEKLY threads please. If you start a post outside those threads-- it will be copied over and your singular post will be deleted. Read the rules and play according to the rules--- and you will find your stuff retweeted
2)Relevancy to your audience has become a topic here.
if you are tweeting only things skewed to small children.. and some stuff that I post (and others) might not be completely releveant to you-- there is a LIST that's been created JUST for mom/kid stuff.
Add this @lastory/mommy-bloggers to your post if you are doing a child/parent/mommy skewed post.-- it reaches at about 100 mommy-bloggers whose following are pretty substantial.
Have another topic you want to target? We can make up another list. But if want a topic to be added, that's easy. You can create it yourself for your own blog too.
4) want to increase your followers?
Think about what else you could post about-- beyond just kids.. (cooking, fashion, health, fitness, travel, books, tv shows )
You don't have to write all the content-- but you could RT someone else's blog post (either from this group or someone that is part of your twitter following & include them in the @theirtwittername -- but that blogger will love it.. and her following will start following you if you do it consistently. you will be building a bigger broader following and will be doing smart social media tactics
5) if you have a limited time RT please indicate that it has a deadline.
Please include a DO NOT POST AFTER XX/XX date.. PLEASE note if you have a time limit. if you are RT-ing.. see if there's a time limit. Tweeps get ticked off seeing something RT'd that's clearly past the deadline.. and Twitter is getting iffy about it too.
6) Please do not post the same tweets every week. Either change up your tweet title or alternate weeks that you list them. it's spamming to post the same exact tweet every single week -- except if it's a contest .. (and even that can be changed) Twitter has been booting people who post the same thing all the time.
7) Use URL shorteners (hootsuite.com, socialoomph.com, twaitter.com) -- and don't forget the bonus of advance schedule posting across the week. that makes it easier for you to tweet everyone and then everyone will tweet you
8) Please do NOT Post about politically charged topics. I don't have to explain why do I
9).. a thought. while we don't know each other as friends.. in this group.. there is something to be said about following the people in this group.. everyone following each other simply because of the expanded reach of the connected networks.. you would have access to my network of people.. I would have access to yours. If you choose not to follow people.. that's ok.. but do realize that if you aren't following someone-- that you still should be RTing their posts.. and most especially if they are RTing yours.

My assistant Tracy Gaudet ( @inspireplanning ) will be doing some RT as well.
Up to here
Welcome Susan! and your assistant
Welcome Susan and Tracy.. You are RT'd.. and I have more stuff.. but I will curate it.. I have been tweeting a lot of other people's stuff. (got a slew of videos & podcasts)
Dear Olfa and fellow twittermoms,
I have had problems changing my password for this site. I did a password change and it did not take.
This morning I tried again and it took, thank goodness.
getting back on to daily routine and posts.
@Justine, did you see all our messages about your twitter account. Please reply
I will resolve the situation thank you for your efforts.
Justine, Twitter considers these types of posts to be spam. You need to talk to them because despite OUR BEST EFFORTS... twitter will not allow us to post them. You have failed to address emails, direct messaging on twitter and posts here.

Good morning Justine,
We are glad to hear from you. Please keep us posted about your twitter issues. Unfortunately until then we will not be able to tweet your tweets.
I have gone and put these on classified ads. I have to admit that while not able to sign in was very frustrating for me I had to walk away from the computer. I tried changing my password for two days with out any resolve in sight.
I had spoke with Megan last yr before moving about finding out more on blog post to earn still working on that I now have two accounts with twittermoms, This one and a sign in from facebook. Maybe i'll be able to get that straightened out too.
everyone listed here has been scheduled. I do need to go back one page and double check for anything I might have missed.
please try contacting her via reg email. I sent her a DIRECT message on twitter and left her two messages on socialmoms and had no response. I suggest you contact megan calhoun and tell her the situation and either see if she can get Justine's attention OR her posts will be ignored. because we can't retweet them.
It's sad to see someone trying but not getting the connection that the site she is using is considered spam.. and that twitter won't accept our posts of her stuff and that only she can do something about it.
Glad you were able to get through to SocialMoms.com but I sent you a Direct Message on Twitter.. so maybe you might want to visit that.. and talk to twitter about it.
