It’s Proved: Recurrence Of Tweets Kills Followers on Twitter

Must Read

Do you think that retweeting the same content or message gets you more traffic ? Its time to think again. A clear mandate is out from a new study that examines why Twitter users stop following brands – Don’t retweet the same content on Twitter. Due to constant repetition of tweet, followers feel annoyed as and such contents transform into abusive irritators.So if you find yourself typing out the same tweet, or bulk scheduling every day, you might want to rethink your tweeting strategy.

In The Social Break-Up report by ExactTarget and cotweet, it becomes lucid that among all social networking websites Twitter is the most influential as its users form the most loyal and engaged social media group out there. So having a Twitter presence is a great start for a brand looking for some exposure.

However, online behavior of Twitter users is also fragmented when it comes to their reasons for unfollowing a brand. While email and Facebook users are more likely to stop engaging with a brand because that brand sends out too much information too frequently, that doesn’t appear to be as big of an issue for Twitter users. Instead, content that becomes repetitive is the most-cited reason for a Twitter user to stop following a brand. In fact, 52% of those surveyed said they stopped following a brand because of this very reason.

Another 20% of Twitter users stopped following a brand because its Twitter feed became too “chit-chatty” – signalling that Twitter users are looking for tweets with value, not just those with spunk or personality.

However, a sizable chunk of Twitter users simply stop following a brand because they feel their Twitter feed is too crowded with marketing messages. As the report notes, this may be a result of the user following too many brands at once, rather than the fault of any brand in particular.

So if you have a business Twitter account, remember: add value with every tweet, and don’t repeat yourself. Simple lessons, but effective for maintaining your Twitter following.

  1. Helpful article. I usually tweet random videos from my website. I actually have several applications auto-tweeting random feed from my RSS, my blog, or my website. And I’ve got several different areas of content for my website, so it’s multiple feeds being tweeted. So my account is usually auto-tweeting something about 10 times a day.

    It seems it actually gets me more followers over the long run, but the content being tweeted is random and never the same. Although I can’t seem to find an auto-tweet recurrence scheduler that will post the same tweet every 4 hours or so.. by this, I mean I wanted to post a link to a page that randomly selected a page from my website. The actual link after you go to the page would actually never be the same, but the problem was ….the content and link would always be the same in the tweet.
    This is good information to know. I guess I would have to have a different phrase every time. It seems the link can be the same, but the content would always have to be different. Getting a program that could actually do this.. it might just have to be custom made.
