Silver here with our latest Twitter tips. Some folks just don’t get Twitter like we do – this is for you.

Twitter is awesome and fun and we love being there, but, it can get distressing when people share the wrong kinds of information. First and top tip – Tweet Responsibly.

Don’t just share a Twitter post with an ‘angry’ OMG!

Mum came across a post that showed a video of a kitten being hurt. It upset her – so much so that she made a formal complaint. The video was tweeted by some foolish person without any link to an appeal, or a way of protesting about the video’s appearance. It was simply posted with an irresponsible “OMG!” comment.

It brought home to us, powerfully, how important it is to judge what we tweet – not just retweet anything that looks like a ’cause’.  We all follow favourite causes in our timelines – people like @Barbi_Twins, @PetsAreFound, respected animal lovers and veterinarians of note, but we need to be conscious, as well, that our own tweets have impact.

Twitter Tips for Social Media
Tweets have an impact that can go far!

Here’s few Twitter tips to keep our friends safe from distress:-

  1. Only tweet causes you know personally or can immediately verify.  Can’t verify on your ‘phone? Ask a pal if its OK, or, send it home as a message to check on a computer later on.
  2. When in doubt – DON’T TWEET, especially if you do not have time to check out the details.  ‘Heart’ it, so you can find it when you get home.
  3. If you see a video that shows animal abuse you can report the violation here.
  4. Report as Spam then Block anyone who posts abuse videos. It keeps your timeline clear and gives Twitter a heads up to assess if there is a violation of their terms of use.

Let’s look after ourselves and all the Twitter anipals we meet and greet.  Share to get cats homes, but share warnings wisely. Know the sharer, or check the truth, before you share and maybe cause distress.

The final Twitter tip from us?

  • Make sure your Twitter biography is up-to-date and friendly, that way people know who you are, and if you can be trusted. Be a Twitter pal of integrity and strength.

    Fortunately, neither my human nor I saw that video – we would have been very upset, especially since there was nothing that could be done about it. It’s so wrong to post things like that without offering a way to help.

    BTW, the blog looks AWESOME! Congratulations!
