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?)
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.
Try joining Olfa's group on Triberr.com.. for mommybloggers. I have one for social media and lifestyle.
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 (azulsocial.com (schedule up to 400 tweets in advance!) 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.
Tisha-- post to the BONFIRES -- technical support and tell them that you have had problems inserting the feed. ALSO tell them that while you are a member of my tribe, I had to pay bones for you twice..
I posted about it.. and if you post about it -- or hit my post on the tech support area they will FINALLY do something about it

Hi Stevie and ladies!! I am back!! I have been on vacation for 18 days!! I am still trying to organize my things!! Excellent reads to come. Thank you Stevie for moderating during my absence. You rock! You are all scheduled. Tweets to come.
Stacy .. retweeted you!! also come join us on triberr..
Olfa!! so glad to see you. reach out to Tisha.. she wants to join your tribe.
Olfa.. I have a mommy blogger @goodboyroy and @kimhix -- the same person with a mommy blogger topic.. who would be a good fit for your tribe on triberr. I can't have her join mine because she's not talking about lifestyle but just about this kids clothing line
also.. we have 24/7 person who posted 2x about her webcast.. -- can you remove at least one of the posts and maybe shoot her a note to put it in the weekly threads? everyone else plays by the rules.. why not her too? We could have tweeted about it.. but she doesn't GET IT
have a great day. I will post some stuff-- since last week it was just Kim Hix and I posting the threads..
Got it Stevie! Thread closed. See new thread
