You know that feeling you get when you can't think of a single thing to twitter about? The fear that hits you in the pit of your stomach when that blank 140 character box appears on your screen? You, my friend, are experiencing the dreaded Twitter's block and it can strike at any time. It's a lot like writer's block and left unchecked it could lead to a prolonged absence of tweets and twitter joy.
But never fear, there is a cure. And it won't hurt, I promise. Here's my 7 quick tips to help you prime the pump and get your tweets flowing freely again.
- Ask a question. Think about anything in your business, job or life that's annoying you or that you'd like some help with and post a short question about it.
- Answer a question. Give back by sharing your knowledge and experience with the Twitterverse.
