Twitter Etiquette In 5 Ways to sustain your trending's recognition

1. Cherish your relationships.

When another user retweets? your post or @mentions? you, thank him or her. This is a great way to get into a conversation and learn more about your followers. Engagement, or getting into a conversation, is the core of the Twitter experience. If you want to earn the respect and endorsement of your followers (and get more followers), you should interact -- and nicely. If you think saying 'thank you' is too patronizing, you can return the favor and retweet one of their posts.

2. Learn how hashtags really work.

Hashtags, or the keywords that begin with the # sign and drive trends, are there to encourage participation among users and to create a community where like-minded people can shares thoughts and discuss specific topics. Use them wisely. Peppering your tweets with too many hashtags is not only defeating the purpose of a hashtag but also very annoying to see.

3. You are what you tweet.

Be mindful of what you post because anything you place on your timeline will be accessed by all of your followers and seen by their own followers. You might have been in an embarrassing situation at the office and found the photo nice to share with friends. However, do note that it will also reach a horde of strangers and possibly your boss, who might not appreciate what you have made public. Posting inappropriate photos and using explicit language is also a big NO. You also don't have to post a blow-by-blow account of what you did since you woke up in the morning, what you ate, where you went, etc. This can be very annoying for followers who would like to see only valuable information shared on their timelines. Before you know it, they could already be blocking your tweets. Resist the urge to over-tweet.

4. Know your audience.

When you post a tweet, you are doing it not just for yourself but also for the benefit of your followers. That said, be mindful of the types of content you get out and ensure that they are valuable and relevent to your readers. Speak to your followers.

5. When in doubt, have common sense prevail.

Don't post anything you wouldn't try to defend face to face. If you're unsure, don't post it online, or just send it privately via a direct message. Better yet, protect your tweets so they don't go public. Bear in mind, though, that by protecting your tweets?you have a greater responsibility to the users who are actually subscribed to see your posts. So make them count.

Vanguard News Nigeria

….charges members on obedience to leadership

THE General Superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Kumuyi, Saturday, maintained that the church will not be handed over to ‘rascals’ who are not portraying the image of Christ in their character.

Kumuyi made the declaration via a satellite broadcast from headquarters of the church in Lagos, while teaching on the topic, ‘Fear Not: The Promise Is Still Good’ during the Faith Clinic session at the ongoing Deeper Life National December Retreat, holding at the Deeper Life Conference Centre (DLCC), which started on Friday, December 21 and ends December 25.

He said the church will not condone any form of rascality and rebellion because the word of God never encourages that and is a strange behaviour capable of taking one to hell fire.

He said: “We are not going to hand the church over to rascals, over to rebellious people that want to scatter everything that is good that the Lord is doing. If you …
